LUIGI BOCCHERINI (1743-1805): 6 Sonatas for Harpsichord and Violin, Op. 5.
Catalogue Number: 12M037
Description: Early works by a young Boccherini who was staying in Paris at the time (1767). No Spanish influences yet but plenty of the melodic gift we associate with this composer and, writing for two accomplished performers, he doesn't bother about difficulties in execution and stirs in a fair share of atypical harmonies. Jacques Ogg (harpsichord), Emilio Moreno (violin). Original 2000 release.
