Notes and Editorial Reviews

Luigi Boccherini was one of the most famous cellists of his day, travelling Europe as a touring virtuoso. On his return to his native Lucca he founded the first professional string quartet in history. Boccherini's output for string ensembles is vast: he wrote more than 120 string quartets, 100 string quintets and 48 string trios. The string trios, Op. 6 are for 2 violins and cello, highly expressive music full of rich classical melodies, elegance and instrumental brilliance. Excellent performances by the Lubotsky Trio, with the eminent Russian violinist Mark Lubotsky, a pupil of David Oistrakh, as primarius.
