Cultural Information

BY Liz Comstock

The song the string quintet in E madjor op.11 No.5. By Luigi Rodolfo Boccherini is a soothing orchestral piece . This classical piece consists of many string instruments such as the cello ,violin, and the bass . This specific song has only one or two of each string instrument. This song makes you feel at peace with the soft molidic rythm and flowing beat . I feel this song is good for people of all ages . I love this song because of how it puts me into a peaceful mood. I would surly add this to my collection of music.
