Franz Ignaz Beck 1734-1809

Music for my Valentine:
I heard these beautiful Violins on the radio the other day. Beck's Sinfonia in D Major is brightly beautiful.
Beck lived during a crucial part of history and was right in the middle of things, dueling and hauled out at night in front of revolutionary courts... He wrote Opera and his life would have been a great one!
I don't know why, but I found his violins some of the prettiest ever and I wish I knew a lot more about when and why he wrote Sinfonia in D Major. Click over here...
and you can have a bit of a listen... 4-7
