Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Op.28 set was composed in 1779 in the Spanish town of Candelada, a time when Boccherini had fallen out with King Carlos III, and was in exile, though still employed by the Infante Don Luis. They are all large-scale 4 movement works. There is much innovation here - the cross-referencing of movements in these works creates a 'cyclical' design. The D minor work (No.5) is a somber foil to its fellow works, and no.2 bears the inscription 'Della Disgrazia' (of his disgrace), a reference to his exile. No.4 has an especially taxing cello part, and No.6 a wonderfully graceful slow movement and a brilliant folk music inspired finale. This is brilliantly written music by a masterful composer at the peak of his creative talent. All performances are on period instrument performances.
