Luigi Boccherini was sometimes called “the wife of Haydn” – because his music’s like a sweeter, more elegant version of Haydn’s. OK, so 18th century music critics could be a bit sexist. But that’s no reason not to discover this delightful matching set of three string quintets: music that combines the melodies of Italian opera, the grace of Mozart and sparkling instrumental fireworks. Sounds fun? It is!
