It is one of the minor musical embarrassments of my life that it took me ages to realize that his name was spelled “Boccherini” and not “Bacherini.” (Luigi Bacherini, son of the infamous Bacherino Bacherini, banditto and castanet virtuoso, master of the steel-edged flying castanets of Andalusia . . . distantly related to the more famous Bach family of Germany?)
