Boccherini writes quintet music for Castanets and Guitar

Bocherini wrote much more than minuets.   What baroque music was all the rage in both the Old & New World that people of every class and nationality wanted to participate?  Its the inspiration for this quintet.  But if you ask me its for 6.    The castanetist is very much a soloist in her own right.

Who were the first people to dance the Fandango in the Old World?

Who were the first people to play this music in the New World?

It makes exciting music for the 4th movement of Bocherini's   Quintet G. 448 in D Major played by The Carmina Quartet

Young people like to do serious music too.   It is always touching to hear them express themselves with musical sincerity.
