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.
