William Herschel’s Symphony No. 14
Matthias Bamert, London Mozart Players
I love Herschel’s music! It’s light and classically fluffy, but equally charming and joyful. Herschel, of course, happens to have been the man who first discovered the planet whose eventual name has subsequently caused much derision: Uranus. So, scientist and composer: a bit of an all-round wonder, then!
