Baltic Summers, Russian Winter: A Life in War, Revolution and Music Paperback
Brave, talented and singularly determined, Henriette Safonoff lived through some of the most turbulent events of her time.
In this captivating account, her granddaughter traces Henriette's life from her privileged childhood in Tsarist Russia and her days as a student in Edinburgh and Frankfurt to her fortuitous journey through Nazi Germany in August 1939.
Displaced by the German invasion of her Baltic homeland in 1915, Henriette experienced the terror and deprivation of the Russian Revolution in Moscow before fleeing to Riga, where she went on to pursue a career as an international mezzo-soprano, until war once again intervened.
