Notes and Editorial Reviews

String player, director and scholar, Emilio Moreno is the the ideal guide to the music of Luigi Boccherini. Joined by the talented Dutch keyboard player Arthur Schoonderwoerd, Moreno leads La Real Cámara, with regular partners violist Antonio Clares and cellist Mercedes Ruiz, in six piano quartets transcribed from Boccherini’s Op 26 two-movement quartettini of 1778.
