A Musical Monday: Henri-Joseph Rigel

Henri-Joseph Rigel (Wertheim-am-Main, Germany, 9th February 1741 – Paris, France, 2nd May 1799) 

Today marks the anniversary of the birth of one of the composers whose work I enjoy listening to whilst writing. Henri-Joseph Rigel enjoyed a glittering career in France, where he wrote opera, symphony and smaller scale pieces. I hope you enjoy these examples of his work.
