Notes & Reviews:

"There's room in the listings for sensibly priced recordings of the best of Boccherini's string quartets, and this Naxos disc fits the bill admirably... [The Borciani Quartet's] effervescent and imaginative accounts of the first two quartets of the Op. 32 group of 1780 (Boccherini's best-known quartets) have a rigour and vitality that suits the music perfectly... If you're new to the Boccherini quartets, these performances afford a splendid introduction." ***** BBC Music
