A young American composer conducts her new symphony in her New York debut. In the audience are members of her family who witness her current success with varying degrees of joy or jealousy. The occasion and the music stimulate real and distorted memories, some humorous and some horrifying, told movement by movement, intermission to intermission. But these are no more than interruptions in the central narrative of the real story of the composer's forgotten family, a family of one stubborn, ignorant, cruel, hard-drinking Bohemian immigrant, a young man beginning a new life in the 19th Century, armed with only a shovel and a broken-down fiddle.
