A tuneful goldfinch befriends a shy boy, unleashing his talent and helping him investigate an unsolved mystery involving composer Chopin, author George Sand and painter Eugene Delacroix.
Mirabelle the goldfinch lives in the yard of a piano teacher, dreaming of musical stardom. She notices a boy named Michael who struggles during his weekly lessons. One day Mirabelle joins him, trilling along to Chopin’s Minute Waltz, and the boy’s precocious talent starts to emerge, just in time for the prestigious Chopin Festival. But there’s more to this story – the new friends find themselves drawn into an unsolved mystery involving an old house full of treasures and a piano that might once have belonged to the great composer Frédéric Chopin himself!
