Catalogue Number: 08Q029
Description: Brunetti was Boccherini's only competition as a string quartet composer in Spain, producing 50 in all. So it's a bit of a shame that two of those recorded here also appeared on one of the only other three CDs devoted to Brunetti. Still, you get two other probably CD premieres, each as full of the composer's witty, offbeat and attractive inventiveness as their companions. Carmen Veneris.
