This is a fantastic buy! Fabio Biondi's first two full price Boccherini Virgin discs - Boccherini: String Quintets, Minuet in A - and Boccherini - Guitar Quintets- now appear together here for less than price one used to cost! Using period instruments Biondi and his players delve deep into the heart of the music, the sharper sound of their period instruments dramatically bringing out the lines of the music giving it a striking sense of inventiveness. These are fresh, alive performances captured in transparent sound. Disc one comprises three string quintets from Op. 25, namely, Nos 6, 4 and 1, and concludes with the famous `Minuet' from String Quintet Op. 11, No 5. The two most famous of Boccherini's guitar quintets, the `Fandango' and `La ritrata di Madrid', are included on disc 2 separated by the String Quartet Op. 24 No. 6. I did at times wish the guitar was more evident in the guitar quintets but that is a minor quibble especially with such fiery playing as this. For the newcomer to Boccherini this anthology will make an excellent introduction while more seasoned listeners should also find much to enjoy in Biondi's enlivening approach.

Relaxing music, especially the guitar CD. Of course track 13 on the first CD is well known from the film "The Ladykillers"

Very nice recording of a great composer. I don't usually like all of a classical album once I have got past the more familiar and popular pieces but I have enjoyed listening to both CDs in this case.

Luidgi Boccherini is very melodic, if you like 18th year classical music. Famous chamber music, excellent music, excellent performance, this string quintet is very melodic.
