Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This CD contains Luigi Boccherini's Quartets, Op. 8 dedicated to enrapture the ears and taste of his future protective Infante Don Luis de Borbón. The lavishly expressive slow movements suggest a musical tribute to the well-known melancholy of the Borbons and distinguish the Op. 8 quartets from the compositions that came before them.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: San Francisco (1955).
