As I wrote in the comment to the YouTube video: “forget the Menuet and check this out, THIS is Boccherini!! 🙂 Joie de vivre, melody, energy, a whirlwind of emotions… and once again I find myself saying “this piece should be known more”

Strangely enough, I was being an optimist. I should have written, this composer should be known more, that is, all his works should be known more.

My first Boccherini transcription, when I still wasn’t a total fan.

I made a request on the youtube video for the score of the second quintet in this opus since I wanted to transcribe it too but so far (in three years) no one has posted it on IMSLP.
