From the very first words of this musical tale, you will find yourself entranced by the secrets of an old house in Ukraine, which fondly conceals, in its attic, the memories, both wonderful and painful, of an Italian mandolin, a Bohemian violin, and a larger-than-life Tatar hat.

Queens, princes,Gypsy fiddlers, Viennese virtuosos, klezmer violinists, luthiers, have passed on their dreams and passions to their instruments which speak of those invisible things which connect and concern us all, from childhood to maturity.
