This CD, one of a set of three, is dedicated to a long neglected composer who was unique in its use of a string quintet with two cellos. Schubert composed one marvelous string quintet but Boccherini is the reference point of the genre, having composed no less than 141 of them. The Quintetto Boccherini was created in the early 1950s and for over 40 years performed this music in an inspired career of concerts worldwide. They had recorded quite a few LPs (EMI, Ensayo, Italia) but almost nothing had appeared on CD until now. Starring cello master Bonucci and viola virtuoso Sagrati, this CD excels in energy and poetry. Its melancholic character brings us back to the early romantic period when it was composed by the author at the Spanish court. Others have recorded this music, usually with a guitar instead of the second cello, but this is the original for five strings and a must for any lover of this kind of music.

Lovely String Quintets In Classic Performances 20 April 2005
By Jeffrey Lipscomb - Published on Amazon.com
Probably the best-known work by Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805) is a Minuet that's usually heard in orchestral arrangements. It was used that way in Stanley Kubrick's film "Barry Lyndon," and can be heard on track 10 of this CD in its original guise. This CD and its two companion releases (Testament 1244 & 1245) provide a diverse sampling of Boccherini's string quintets, so perhaps it's numerically apt to make 5 comments:

1. This is music of great charm and originality.

2. These 1950's recordings are all in good quality mono sound that is pretty much identical to the original Angel LPs.

3. The Quintetto Boccherini was one of the great post-war Italian chamber ensembles, along with the Quartetto Italiano, Renato Fasano's Virtuosi di Roma, the Societa Corelli (a gorgeous Vivaldi 4 Seasons on RCA LP), and the wonderful Trio di Trieste (see my review of the latter's CD box set on DG).

4. The playing on this CD is warm and rather romantic. Fast movements may lack some of the zip heard in recent recordings (Fabio Biondi, etc.), but the slower movements here are more intimate and expressive.

5. If you enjoy this CD, you will probably want to acquire its two companion releases. However, these historic re-issues are likely to go out of print after a brief period of availability, so don't hesitate too long.

Recommended.
