Luigi Boccherini

£6.00 £4.00

One of the most prolific composers of his time, Luigi Boccherini was also an acclaimed cello virtuoso, who not only developed the cello as a solo instrument but revolutionised its repertoire.  This third volume of his Cello Concertos depicts a mature composer at the height of his powers, combining sumptuous melodic content with extremely fast passage-work in the very highest registers of the instrument, sometimes with additional double-stopping to provide the soloist with even greater difficulties.

…Raphael Wallfisch proves to be a most stylish and sympathetic performer… Throughout, Wallfisch plays his own cadenzas which are free from Romantic bluster and empty virtuosity.  The partnership with the Northern Chamber Orchestra works very well.”  BBC Music Magazine
