"You can read Elise Blackwell's An Unfinished Score as if you were listening to a great string quartet: there's a harmony that exists between her characters, and a complexity that allows for unexpected - intriguing - results. Blackwell faultlessly connects classical music to her exploration of loss and relationships, and she's an excellent storyteller, combining tension and thoughtfulness. Not since Vikram Seth's An Equal Music have I read such appealing music fiction."Laura Kuechenmeister Bookworks Bookstore, Albuquerque

"Blackwell's prose works like a symphony... the book is ultimately an orchestra of its own, beautifully composed and richly textured." —New Pages

"An Unfinished Score is rich with musical history and theories…. Blackwell writes with flowing, poetic prose that will grab you ….The last 60 pages in particular kept me up into the wee hours of the morning!" —A Curious Reader
