Notes & Reviews:

This recording follows a first collaboration between Zig-Zag Territoires and Marco Ceccato (Vivaldi sonatas), widely hailed by the press. It is devoted to two important aspects of Luigi Bocherini's work: chamber music and the cello, of which he was a great virtuoso. The two quintets and the divertimento feature the combination of the string quar- tet - of which Boccherini was, in a way, the co-founder with Haydn) - sometimes with the guitar, sometimes with the flute having place of honor, and always with a delightful use of those instruments' sound capabilities. And, of course, the cello is then to the fore in the Concerto in G major, a summary of virtuosity and lyricism.

All of this music is played with beauty of sound and sensitivity. It is not an easy program to fit into a specific spot in a collection but that is a prime characteristic of Boccherini. He writes lovely music in closely related scorings that tend to blend. This is a finely recorded and enjoyably musical reading of lovely music.
