Boccherini: Symphonies – LMP, Matthias Bamert
Matthias Bamert and the London Mozart Players here present a selection of symphonies by Luigi Boccherini. None of the symphonies is well known and they are seldom recorded.
Luigi Boccherini was born in 1743 in Lucca. He was to become one of the greatest cellists of his time, and travelled all over Europe giving virtuoso performances. His compositional genius only fully emerged when he took up permanent residence at the court of the Infante Don Luis in Spain. He is most associated with chamber music, especially the string quintet. But his output also included about thirty symphonies. Three have been recorded here. Nos. 3 and 8 were composed for Don Luis in 1771, whereas No. 21 was written for King Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia in 1786.
The Contemporaries of Mozart series is one of the longest-running on Chandos and offers performances of rarely recorded works, played by an orchestra and conductor which understands this repertoire completely.

“…Bamert and his crew handle this recording with their usual excellence.” “…this recording is well worth getting.”

“The London Mozart Player’s strings are outstanding.”
George Pratt

BBC Music Magazine - October 2010

“…his [Boccherini] works are always welcome and the London Mozart Players is a superb exponent of 18th-century music on modern instruments. Furthermore, Bamert has an enlightening way of letting music flow convincingly without ever imposing subjective whims on it.”
Antony Hodgson

classicalsource.com - 1 July 2010

“…Elegance and grace are the keywords here, not just in the music itself, which oozes these characteristics out of every bar, but in the performances themselves. Bamert, as neat and restrained a conductor as exists, offers a graciously guiding hand to his outstanding players …” “…this is a disc to treasure.”
Marc Rochester
