Catalogue Number: 03R025
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Here is the first complete recording of this set of half-a-dozen what Boccherini called quartettini - short, two-movement works as distinguished from his three- and four-movement Grande quartets. Yet you’ve heard them before for they also wear different clothing: for two harpsichords (on Harmonia Mundi in 1985) for piano duo (on Tactus in 2012 - 06N035), both as G.76 and piano quartets (G.259 and offered on Glossa a mere month later - 07O035). Finally here they are as they were originally intended. Ensemble Symposium.
