THE STATION ORCHESTRA
THE MERRY WIVES was Nicolai's last work. He died, at the age of thirty-nine, only a couple of months after it was produced, in 1849. The Overture is as nimble as Falstaff's wits.
It has charming vivacity, and a lightness of touch that Nicolai probably acquired through living and working in Italy. ' The MERRY WIVES OF WiNDSOR'
