Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Luigi Boccherini was considered a virtuoso cellist and began playing concerts at age 13. Originally from Italy, he became a naturalized Spaniard. Boccherini often played violin repertoire on the cello at pitch, a skill he developed by substituting for ailing violinists while touring. This supreme command of the instrument brought him much praise from his contemporaries. His compositions are in the Rococo style with lightness, optimism, melodic and rhythmic form – the Sonata in C Major, G.17 being no exception. Hans Kristian Goldstein
