About

This recording follows a first collaboration between Zig-Zag Territoires and Marco Ceccato (Vivaldi sonatas) which was widely hailed by the press. It is devoted to two important aspects of Luigi Bocherini’s work: chamber music and the cello, of which he was a great virtuoso.

The two quintets and the divertimento feature the combination of the string quartet – of which Boccherini was, in a way, the co-founder with Haydn – sometimes with the guitar, sometimes with the flute having place of honour, and always with a delightful use of those instruments’ sound capabilities.

And, of course, the cello is then to the fore in the Concerto in G major, a summary of virtuosity and lyricism.
