He is represented by his String Sextet, a work embued with “youthful esprit and … courageous expressivity”.

Saturday 11 March 8pm … in The Life Of A Composer, programmer James Nightingale focuses on Niccolò Jommelli, an Italian composer of the 18th century notable for his operas which melded “German complexity, French decorative elements and Italian brio”.
