String quintet minus one
I regularly record quintets by Boccherini (my second passion after Beethoven) that have never been recorded. I started recording with my violin and my synthesizer, then violin and virtual instruments and recently only with virtual instruments. I thought that at the moment, with the Covid 19, it would be interesting to propose one of my recordings without the first violin. I have chosen a late quintet, G 361, which I think is one of Boccherini's most accomplished works.
You will find the videos in my youtube channel:
"minus one" version :
Original version with first violin :
Andantino con semplicità :
Tempo di Minuetto :
Finale Allegro giusto :
That's impressive work. I see the parts are available on IMSLP (filed under Boccherini's "Collections") which might be easier than reading from a small screen.
Thank you for your interest! That's exactly why I provided the link to ISMLP. You download, print and you can start. That said, when you have a large screen (desktop PC) it is even more pleasant to read. In the meantime I have noticed that the score has been edited by SJMusic.
Thanks for sharing this, I'm sure it took a considerable amount of time. I'd love to play around with any more that you're willing to put out there!
