This chapter analyzes the first movement in Luigi Boccherini's cello sonata in E♭major. It contends that the sense of reciprocity in the process of identification of Western classical music is not entirely wistful or metaphorical, but functions as a real relationship. It argues that this relationship is not fantastic, incidental, or inessential to musicology and that it can and should be a primary source of knowledge about the performed work of art. It also asserts that carnal musicology bears witness to a genuinely reciprocal relationship between performer and composer.

Keywords:   cello sonata, Luigi Boccherini, reciprocity, classical music, musicology, performer, composer
