My musical journey began with classical piano training with a stint in orchestra as a cellist. Consequently, I have a passing knowledge of the classical genre and also a deep love and respect for its glorious offerings.
Instead of letting this passion languish like a wallflower at her first middle school dance I thought I’d periodically blog about classical music. Starting today, starting with Boccherini.
Don’t you love that name! BO-KER-EE-NEE. Luigi (love that name, too) Boccherini lived at the time of Mozart and Haydn though he never achieved the same rock star status. Maybe it was the cello. There’s something inherently nerdy about the cello — until you hear it played and it becomes the most soulful of all instruments. And that’s a fact.
Well that’s it for The Classical Lassie for this week. I sure hope somebody hasn’t already claimed ‘Classical Lassie’ as their ‘Handel’.
