An act of justice by Rayner Heppenstall
with Elisabeth Leighton, Basil Jones and Virginia Winter
The music attributed to Vinteuil and the piano sonata played by Michael Head
Produced by Rayner Heppenstall
If Proust's long novel, A La Recherche du Temps Perdu, can be said to have a villain, it is the young violinist, Charles Morel. Yet he was clearly very gifted, and after the First World War he was regarded with universal respect. It is conceivable that Marcel's view of him was biased and even vindictive.
