Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International
The remaining three beautifully-proportioned works, all lyrical masterpieces showing also a more reflective, wistful Boccherini, only underscore the fact that this is a composer of considerable genius in his prime... Boccherini's imitation of a jew's harp in the final Quintet betokens a striking originality that deserves to be remembered for so much more than the "celebrated minuet".
