All great music is born of passion
A violinist, a violist and a seductress.
For twenty-two years the Goldberg brothers – Richard on cello, Harvey on viola and Albert on violin – have made music together, earning a decent living and a modicum of respect in the classical music community. When Richard’s sudden demise forces Harvey and Al to find a replacement cellist, neither can imagine how their new colleague will shake up their middle-aged lives.
Deidre Rasinovsky-Corbatta is an unlikely addition to the Goldberg Trio, a shapely siren with purple hair, scarlet lips and a rose tattooed on her ample breasts – but she plays cello like an angel. The passion she pours into her music spills over into her relationships with the two brothers. When both Al and Harv fall in love with her, will this tear the trio apart – or transform it?

Lisabet Sarai’s latest release, Goldberg Variations, places me at once in so many welcome familiar places – Mozart’s and Beethoven’s cello trios, which often played on our stereo as I was growing up; Brownstone row houses in Brooklyn, NY, the neighborhood my son lived in for several years; The medieval Cloisters, in far northwest Manhattan, which I visited on both my honeymoons…
Those aren’t likely to be the first reasons a reader would pick up this enticing short story, nor are they likely to be the memories that stand out when the reader finishes the book, but for me they add exquisite texture to the delightful and sensual crescendo of Goldberg Variations, the erotic story of a harmonious trio, on and off the musical stage.
Five Stars – Not to be missed.
About Lisabet Sarai
I became addicted to words at an early age. I began reading when I was four. I wrote my first story at five years old and my first poem at seven. Since then, I have written plays, tutorials, scholarly articles, marketing brochures, software specifications, self-help books, press releases, a five-hundred page dissertation, and lots of erotica and erotic romance – more than fifty single author titles, plus dozens of short stories in various erotic anthologies, including the Lambda winner Where the Girls Are and the IPPIE Best Erotic Book of 2011, Carnal Machines. My gay scifi erotic romance Quarantine won a Rainbow Awards 2012 Honorable Mention.
I have more degrees than anyone would ever need, from prestigious educational institutions who would no doubt be deeply embarrassed by my chosen genre. Travel is one of my passions. I’ve visited every continent except Australia and Antarctica. Currently I live in Southeast Asia with my indulgent husband of more than thirty years and two exceptional felines, where I pursue an alternative career that is completely unrelated to my creative writing.
