Sinfonia in A major Op. 35:3

Add to calendar
Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805) was a prodigy on cello and already appeared as a 13-year-old before the court in Vienna. Later followed tours in northern Italy and France. He also composed several cello concerts and about 30 symphonies.

In 1770 he was employed in Madrid by Don Luis, brother of the Spanish king Charles III, and was active there until 1785. The six symphonies in Boccherini’s opus 35 seem to have been completed in 1782, by the time the composer and his family moved into the Las Arenas Palace in Avila where Don Luis himself lived. The symphony in A major is written in three movements and with a relatively small, but well-used, wind ensemble next to the strings. Here are some solo parts for violin and a concluding movement that is a fine combination of minuet and finale.
