THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
BOCCHERINI, in his own day in the very front rank of Violoncello players, was also a composer of immense industry. It used to be said of him that he was a fountain of which it was only necessary to turn on the tap to produce a stream of music. He left no fewer than 467 instrumental works, including twenty symphonies, all of them marked by simple natural melodiousness, and by a dignified and courtly style. He and Haydn had a great mutual regard, and the relation of Boccherini's music to that of the more famous master was characterized in the saying that ' Boccherini was the wife of Haydn.
The little Minuet, which is his most famoua piece at the present day, is a happy example of the easy graceful melodiousness of which his music is full.
