Boccherini: Flute Quintets Op. 19

'These are delightful works played with a persuasively affectionate period-instrument style, with a felicitous lead from the nimble and gently expressive flautist, Carlo Ipata. Hyperion do the players proud in their debut recording; we shall surely hear more of them' --Gramophone

'I was pleasantly surprised with this disc. The music is typical Boccherini, charming and with a certain amount of energy…but the performances by Auser Musici flow beautifully. They have both inner energy and a smile' --Fanfare, USA

'Listening to these six quintets, one is immediately captivated by a charm and invention that, while of a different nature, easily equals that of Haydn or Mozart … The playing is exceptional … Beautifully recorded in the Oratorio di S Domenico, Pisa, this is an auspicious debut for Auser Musici on Hyperion. Further recordings are planned - let's hope we don't have to wait too long for them' --International Record Review
