Description: The charming sound of the mandolin, a Neapolitan instrument originally, is featured in music by mostly Italian composers (Barbella actually from Naples) written in galant to Classical style. The anonymous work is often attributed to Paisiello but its intimate knowledge of mandolin technique argues for a mandolin-playing minor composer.
