About this release

At the time when Luigi Boccherini wrote his piano quintets the genre was not really the fashion. Why add a keyboard when four strings suffice? Still the composer wrote a number of piano quintets, in which he adopted a more or less Baroque approach by reducing the piano to an accompaniment role.

Although these light-hearted and melodious works are rather late they have the same delightful tone of the chamber music he had written thirty years earlier. The composer later arranged some of his piano quintets for guitar quintet.

Energetic and inspired performances by Ensemble Claviere.
