Roaming The Classical Period

Composer: Luigi Boccherini

Music from the 18th and 19th century. This episode is dedicated to Luigi Boccherini, whom you could call the ‘forgotten’ composer of the classical period. This is because he still stands in the shadows of Haydn and Mozart. In this programme, we’ll listen to his Stabat mater and a sonata for piano and violin.
