The Paris Seamstress and Brandenburg Quartet – Arts Monday
Bestselling Australian author, Natasha Lester, weaves sweeping stories of strong women succeeding in a male dominated world at key historical moments. Her latest book, The Paris Seamstress, shows just how much a young Parisian seamstress, Estella Bissette, will sacrifice to make her mark in New York’s fashion scene of the 1940s. Then, seventy- five years later, as her granddaughter, Fabienne Bissette, learns more about her grandmother’s past, she uncovers a story of tragedy, heartbreak and secrets and the sacrifices made for love. Crossing generations, society’s boundaries and international turmoil, The Paris Seamstressis the fascinating, transporting story of the special relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter as they attempt to heal the heartache of the past.
Author, Natasha Lester, is my guest today.

The Brandenburg Quartet brings together the four principals of the multi ARIA Award-winning Orchestra’s string section: violinists, Shaun Lee-Chen and Ben Dollman; violist Monique O’Dea; and cellist, Jamie Hey. Performing exclusively on gut strings, the group seeks to explore and shed light on little-known works and composers, in addition to well-loved quartets of the classical repertoire. The Brandenburg Quartet are bringing the unique sound world of the Brandenburg in their debut performance at the Independent Theatre with a program of exquisite classical quartets played on period instruments.
