About this release

The continuation of the Boccherini String Quintet series on Brilliant Classics offers the complete 6 quintets Op. 20. Again a proof of Boccherini’s great musical originality, placing him firmly in the line Haydn-Mozart-Beethoven, a master of Classical Style.

The interpretations of the ensemble La Magnifica Comunità, playing on original instruments, are gaining enormous critical acclaim, winning a prestigious “Diapason d’Or” and “Choc de la Monde de la Musique” in France, for their eloquent phrasing, and fresh and brilliant playing, full of vigour and tenderness.
