For the distinguished critic Agustin Cabin, music is indispensable to sexual emotion. Forced to retire from his San Juan newspaper, Agustin is writing his memoirs, which describe his long career seducing the women and men who were among the most brilliant classical musicians in the world.The Australian pianist Clint Verret offered a passionate and tender interlude. Clarissa Berdsley, the French horn player, was submissive and playful. The flamboyant violinist Manuela Suggia turned out to be a vengeful and demonic lover. In Deep Purple, Mayra Montero explores the relationship between sexual desire and music. For Agustin Cabin ultimately finds, in that deep and mysterious place that is the core of human sexuality, nothing less than the meaning of life.
