Quintets and Sextets by Brunetti and Boccherini

Six performers, four different instrumental settings and two composers. This concert features chamber music for rare groups (especially the string sextets) of two of the Italians who most profoundly marked the Spanish musical life of the late 18th century: Gaetano Brunetti and Luigi Boccherini. Both composers bequeathed us a huge chamber music production and were pioneers in the exploration of new instrumental settings.
