^ Ten years ago I "discovered" a Preisner's compilation album. I love his music:

Tchaikovsky and Isaac Albeniz are to of my favorites. I'd recommend them to anyone who's interesting.

I love the 4th movement the best. I laughed so much when I read the synopsis to the storyline of the whole piece. This is why I say he was insane haha. But genius.

Symphonie fantastique - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia <---- storyline

Luigi Boccherini - Italian man (1743 - 1805) who sounds passionate and full of fire, based on his music I've heard and this story from his life:

Quote:
Luigi Boccherini - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 1761 Boccherini went to Madrid, where he was employed by Infante Luis Antonio of Spain, younger brother of King Charles III. There he flourished under royal patronage, until one day when the King expressed his disapproval at a passage in a new trio, and ordered Boccherini to change it. The composer, no doubt irritated with this intrusion into his art, doubled the passage instead, leading to his immediate dismissal.


Right now I'm listening to one of his pieces that I enjoy, and it makes me curious to hear more of his works:

Luigi Boccherini, Symphony No. 6, "La casa del diavolo" ("House of the Devil"), Movement 3



And here is a painting of Luigi Boccherini, playing his cello, Circa 1764-1767, artist unknown. He looks happy and alert, doesn't he? And he played the...cello!!



Sadly, this is how his life ends: "Boccherini fell on hard times following the deaths of his Spanish patron, two wives, and two daughters, and he died almost in poverty in Madrid in 1805."
