Notes & Reviews:

To mark the bicentenary of Boccherini (1743-1805), Jordi Savall offers an entirely new reading, full of freshness and color, of the finest of the Italian composer's works written during his long period of residence in Spain. The high point of this album is the well known 'Fandango,' performed with a breathtaking sense of rhythm and virtuosity. "Boccherini's music always is full of charm; Savall, his musicians, and Alia Vox's engineers have turned these pieces into a great listening experience." -Classics Today "The recorded sound on this disc is excellent, warmed but not clouded by a resonant church acoustic, and the accompanying booklet is handsomely presented. Bubbling high spirits from composer and performers alike produce a most entertaining disc." -BBC Music Magazine
