BOCCHERINI
String Quintet Op. 25 No. 6 in A minor

BOCCHERINI
String Quintet Op. 30 ‘Night Music of the Streets of Madrid’ 

Boccherini’s Night Music of the Streets of Madrid, is his charismatic reflection on the vibrant city. Church bells, the soldier’s drum, popular street dances and the curfew call from the night watch, are all vividly depicted in this stunning work. Exceptionally prolifc in his output for this quintet combination - we also perform his virtuosic, tenderly languishing Op. 25 No. 6 in A minor.

Another lesser known but wonderful exponent of the quintet was the Italian composer Guiseppe Cambini.

A mysterious musical figure of the 18th and early 19th centuries, of whom little is known. We perform his brilliant but rarely heard quintet No. 23 in G major.

The program also features a dark and beautiful arrangement for string quintet of Mozart’s Adagio and Allegro K. 594, originally written for mechanical clockwork organ.
