‘The sweetest moment of my life’
The third movement [of ‘Il viaggio da Berlino a Bresalvia’], a Rondeau Grazioso, bears the inscription ‘Le plus dous moment de ma vie’ (‘the sweetest moment of my life’). Presumably, this movement, perhaps its theme, refers to some moment in Graziani’s life to which he was favourably disposed. There is, however, nothing unusual about either the movement or even the whole sonata to suggest that Graziani intended to treat it differently from his other works. Rather this sonata is a fine illustration of Graziani’s style and approach to his instrument: idiomatic, lyrical, and overflowing with ideas.
