I'd ordinarily not leave a review, but since I believe this recording has been unfairly slandered by another reviewer of this cd, I wanted to add another perspective. First, it's hardly the recording's fault that the first person to list this cd on amazon wrote "quartets" rather than "quintets" in the heading. Amazon provides an easy way to correct such mistakes. One simply clicks on the link to update product information. It took me about 15 seconds to submit a correction, and only a couple of days for amazon to change it. Second, the other reviewer refers to the opus and number references for all but one of the pieces on the cd as "incorrect" and "mislabeled." But clearly these aren't mistakes; obviously it's rather the case that there are different cataloging systems for Boccherini's works. The one used on this cd is the same one that can easily be found with a google search for Boccherini's works, for example, [...]. Perhaps it is the case that after this recording was made, in 1975, another cataloging system came to be considered the best one. But again, this is hardly a fair criticism of this cd. Third, the other reviewer says that the "clarity is lost on some tracks, because this is an LP transfer from 1975." I have listened to many hundreds of historical cd recordings that were transferred directly from lps and '78's. I doubt very much that this ADD cd was made that way. I think this cd was transferred from the original master, and I think the sound is superb. It is not unclear, and is warm, and very natural; and the instrumental timbres are truly beautiful. The acoustic of the recording venue, the Teatre Municipal in Girona, Spain seems to me to be ideal: not too dry, not too resonant. It's like listening to a live performance in a small concert hall from the best seat in the house. Naturally, the recording lacks the razor-sharp clarity of certain DDD cds; but, on the other hand, it avoids all the shrillness and glare one so often finds in the sound of violins in DDD recordings. I believe it gains a tremendous amount in virtue of its analogue source. Finally, although I am by no means an authority on Boccherini's quintets, I found the playing of the Quintetto Boccherini to be at an extremely high level technically, and to be utterly convincing musically. Just a gorgeous recording.
