BOCCHERINI : CONCERTO FOR VIOLONCELLO AND STRINGS No 2 In D Major

Ο Ιταλός συνθέτης Luigi Boccherini [1743 – 1805] υπήρξε καθοριστικός για την αναβάθμιση του βιολοντσέλου σε σολιστικό όργανο από απλό όργανο συνοδείας. Τσελίστας ο ίδιος, έγραψε μουσική κατά βάσιν για έγχορδα, της κιθάρας συμπεριλαμβανομένης, γνωστότερο από τα οποία είναι το μινουέτο από το κουιντέτο του σε Μι, Op. 11 No 5 και το Cello Concerto σε Σι ύφεση μείζονα.
Ακούμε τον
Mstislav Rostropovich με τα έγχορδα της Leningrad Philharmonic στο τρίτο μέρος, Allegro ενός άλλου κονσέρτου για τσέλο – No 2 σε Ρε μείζονα.
Ακόμα : ακούστε μια “ambient” σύνθεση του
Luigi Boccherini, εδώ.

Italian composer
Luigi Boccherini [1743 – 1805] was instrumental in the upgrading of the cello to a solo rather than just an accompanying instrument. A cellist himself, he wrote music basically for strings, including guitar, the best known of which are the minuet from his quintet in E, Op. 11 No 5 and the Cello Concerto in B flat major.
We listen to
Mstislav Rostropovich and the strings of Leningrad Philharmonic on the third part, Allegro of another cello concerto – No 2 in D major.
Also : listen to an “ambient” composition by
Luigi Boccherini, here.

    Amazing! Cello is a recent love in my life. Wow! He wrote for guitar? (absolutely my fave instrument). This seems like a rebels work in his time. When did the guitar make its appearance?

      In the 15th century. But Boccherini was among the first, if not the first to combine the guitar with a string quartet. Here’s an example from an older post
