Classical Sunday: Boccherini’s Complete Cello Concertos

Luigi Boccherini’s style is characterized by Rococo charm, lightness, and optimism, and exhibits much melodic and rhythmic invention, coupled with frequent influences from the guitar tradition of his adopted country, Spain.

Something light for the first Sunday in October.

Luigi Boccherini (1743 – 1805) had a great affinity with the cello.  Each of the 12 concertos is a musical gem, well-suited for the instrument, delightfully light-hearted.  The Italian performers provide a sunny listening experience.
