Catalogue Number: 03J037
Reference: CDA 67646
Description: One of the rare uses of a wind instrument in this composer's chamber music for strings, this set of quintets (one of two for the combination) dates from 1773-4. Boccherini's symphonic concept of chamber music still applies, emphasizing the flute although, as you might expect, two of the quintets have a prominent and virtuosic cello part also. Auser Musici.
