Notes and Editorial Reviews

Though born in Italy, Luigi Boccherini was based for most of his life in Madrid, where he played the cello and wrote more than a hundred string quintets. They’re perfectly formed from the simplest chords, and not without their touches of profundity. The cello sonatas sound at times too much like performers’ music. The explanation lies in changing styles of string technique and the rise of the piano, though Anner Bylsma’s playing gives them a new lease of life.

-- Nicholas Williams, BBC Music Magazine

 Boccherini Rules!! July 3, 2013 By A. M. (Sandwich, MA) See All My Reviews "After listening to WGBH, 99.5, Boston when portions of the works were playing, I knew I had to own the CD so I could play any or all of it again at will! It comprises the all-string chamber sounds that are so soothing and satisfying. Thank you! A.M." Report Abuse
