Fandango by Boccherini is outstanding

Fandango by Boccherini is probably one of the richest and most enjoyable pieces of music I have ever heard.  Fandango has several meanings depending on the Spanish speaking country where the term is used.  In this context it is a piece of Spanish dance music accompanied by strings, castanets, and tamborin.  There are several versions I enjoy including the one by the Carmina Quartet with Rolf Lislevand and Nina Corti: La Musica Notturna di Madrid.  One easily accessible is on Youtube at https://youtu.be/IgEaS_d6qUE.

And now the cure is here...

 After almost three years of fear and isolation comes inflation and economic stress.  What a surprise?!  How come this was not more obvious?...
