5.0 étoiles sur 5 A real gem (and still in print!) . . . 13 février 2002
Par Johnny Bard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This Philips 2-disc set featuring Boccherini's Op. 12 (6 symphonies) is simply wonderful. Raymond Leppard conducted the New Philharmonia Orchestra for these recordings (made in 1972). Philips, as usual, has done an admirable job remastering these analog recordings (the sound is crisp, clean, and full). These two discs, like the composer's works in general, have held up extremely well over time.
Luigi Boccherini remains an underrated 18th century composer. Perhaps he will always remain so, given his competition during this rich musical period. Compared with Mozart or Haydn, Boccherini didn't write very many symphonies (only 26, compared with 50-plus for Mozart and over 100 for Haydn).
Yet the six symphonies on this Philips release are outstanding. True, elements of Boccherini's Op. 6 are reminiscent of symphonies written by Mozart, Haydn, and C.P.E. Bach, but they are never derivative. Boccherini's compositions flow effortlessly from one movement to the next. They are fluid yet substantive, energetic yet balanced. Leppard infuses in each symphony a sense of passion that permeates through all six compositions.
Mozart and Haydn have certainly left their mark on the 18th century musical landscape. It's a shame that Boccherini tends to be overlooked (both by the public and the recording industry). There are literally only a handful of recordings still available that feature Boccherini's works for cello, string quartets, and orchestra. Fortunately, this one is still in print (but for how long?), and I strongly encourage anyone interested in Mozart and Haydn to give these discs a try. Their price is affordable, the conducter accomplished, and the symphonies charming (yet never shallow).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Drinking the Devil's Beer - Review No. 666 (a) 20 octobre 2015
Par Bernard Michael O'Hanlon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Larry Norman once asked “Why should the Devil have all the good music?” Attractive as it is, I’m yet to fathom this statement. Moreover, Lucifer (his preferred name) is a paid-up, cultivated and respectable member of the Australian Knappertsbusch Association (even if his body-odour is noxious and his cloven hoofs scuff up the carpet at our global HQ). In consequence, it’s time to embark on a week-long survey of music that’s associated with the Fallen Star of the Morning. In saying this, I’ll exclude any of the operas or oratorios associated with the legend of Faust.

We’ll start with an easy one: Boccherini’s six symphonies of Opus 12 – which is crowned with the famous finale of the D Minor Symphony: La Casa del Diablo. I cannot think of a better example, symphony-wise, where ferocity is maintained from the first bar to the last: it’s Sturm und Drang in Imax. Here, Raymond Leppard recorded these symphonies with the New Philharmonia - as it was then – in March 1972. There are a few duds among them. The Symphony in B flat is conventional as a work and I would not make any great claims of its successor in A Major On the other hand, the first symphony of the set exemplifies Hazlitt’s Sundial: “I count only the hours that are serene.” Those who are attuned to Boccherini’s poise, melancholy and sultriness will find much here to enjoy, especially as the vintage Philips recording is superb. Moreover, it’s such a joy to hear this music being played by a full symphony orchestra and not a scratch ensemble.

Lucifer is not overly enthused by this music. In his opinion, ‘La Casa del Diablo’ might appeal to hyper-active poltergeists and that’s about it. In itself, it’s no inducement to sell one’s soul to the Dark Side. Let's close with a quote from a late member of the AKA: Hunter Thompson:

"If Sunday is the Lord's day, then Saturday belongs to the Devil. It is the only night of the week when he gives out Free passes to the Late show at the Too Much Fun Club."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Boccherini: Symphonies Opus 12 16 avril 2011
Par Bjorn Viberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Boccherini: Symphonies Opus 12 is a recording under the direction Raymond Leppard who leads the New Philharmonia Orchestra on this Philips Classics recording from 1972. Raymond Leppard has himself written the music notes and they are both entertaining, informative and well-written. A great recording that should not be missed and especially a treat for fans of Boccherini. Highly recommended. 5/5.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 intermittently satisfying; 3.5 stars 30 mars 2014
Par jsa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805) and Franz Haydn were virtual contemporaries (1732-1809) who respected each other, and borrowed musically from each other as well - a practice that was common then - but that Haydn was the superior composer was recognized even in their time. Indeed, Boccherini was referred to as "the wife of Haydn" by sharp-tongued contemporaries, and as mean-spirited as that statement may appear to be today, there's still an element of truth to it. That Haydn's symphonies are enduring masterpieces of the repertoire and Boccherini's far more modest symphonic output remains relatively unknown speaks for itself. Boccherini's music is for the most part cheerful and melodic - he had, for example, no Sturm and Drang period such as Haydn's - and while not everything he composed was relentlessly sunny, he didn't explore the tragic to the extent that Haydn did.

While Boccherini's op. 12 symphonies are not on the same level as even Haydn's earlier works in this genre, they still offer a variety of moods and occasionally surprising depth. The Fourth symphony, for example, is unusual in form and also quite dramatic; and the Second symphony, which is intelligently programed after the Fourth, is much more dynamic than the music one thinks of as coming from this typically congenial composer. The closing movement is wonderfully bouncy, but the movements preceding this are packed with serious material. This is not just happy music. The Fifth symphony, on the other hand, is routine; and the Sixth, which improves after a bland opening movement, still doesn't approach the inventiveness of the Second and Fourth. The First symphony has some promising moments in the first movement, but Boccherini's reliance on short repeated phrases interrupts the forward momentum and wears thin pretty quickly. But the patient listener is rewarded with a beautiful second movement that seems to come out of nowhere. The same is true of the lovely Andantino of the Third symphony, which follows a rather mundane opening Allegro.

This type of creative back and forth is representative of the whole mass of Boccherini's six op. 12 symphonies -- just when you think his music isn't sophisticated or inspiring enough to invest much time in, there's a pleasant surprise that shifts the momentum in the other direction. Despite this, the satisfying moments are too few and far between to offer more than intermittent listening satisfaction.

The playing of the New Philharmonia under the direction of Raymond Leppard is exemplary and the 1972 recorded sound is rich and warm.

Three and a half stars.

When it comes to classical music I don't know much. I generally like better quality recording, with good instrumentalists and that certain something in the composing that catches my interest and keeps it.

This cd set qualifies on all three counts.
