This new issue contains three of Boccherini’s accomplished string quintets in performances which are warmly communicative. The music of Op. 25 is diversely entertaining at every turn. And, for good measure, the celebrated Minuetto provides a coda to the programme. I am always ready to hear it, and am never disappointed. Nicholas Anderson
