Notes & Reviews:

Originally published in London in 1771, these six Sonatas for cello and basso continuo were arranged for cello and piano by the influential Italian virtuoso cellist Alfredo Piatti in the 1870s and are performed here on modern instruments by outstanding young musicians. The Russian cellist Fedor Amosov has taken first prize in several international competitions, including the 2007 Knushevitzky Competition. Boccherini's blend of virtuosity and melancholy singing style remains to the fore in Piatti's technically demanding adaptations which, at times, differ both in the cello and keyboard realisations from modern editions of the sonatas derived from other manuscript sources.

"Thematically they aim to please the listener, and at the same time offer challenges to interest a virtuoso cellist, the finale of the Second being a finger-knotting experience. It is played by the young Russian-born Fedor Amosov and the Taiwanese pianist, Jen-Ru Sun. Amosov deals admirably with passages of tricky intonation and produces an elegant singing tone for slow movements. The reverberant American recording much enlarges the volume of the cello's lower strings, but balance between instruments is good." -David's Review Corner

"Anosov is a young Moscor cellist who plays with generally good taste and virtuosity. His interpretations are smooth and musically phrased in a low-keyed but exciting way."-American Record Guide
