This is a brilliant disc. I'd previously thought Boccherini to be a sort of charming but slightly wallpaperish composer of amiable, rather forgettable music. Not any more.
I listened to this disc on the basis that Biondi is occasionally bonkers (try his Mozart Violin Concerti!) but never, ever dull and often quite brilliant. Here, he and Europa Galante are brilliant. From the moment they get stuck into the opening Allegro non molto there is verve, delight and occasionally real pathos in their playing, and the standard of musicianship is amazing. This disc was a complete revelation to me, and now I can see the point of Boccherini. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. I bet you'll just love it - I do.
