Too often the Boccherini Cello sonatas are given a ponderous victorian reading, with the continuo accompaniment often played on piano. Here, Richard Lester has returned to the original texts as much as possible, noting that the continuo is generally a bass line only or has cellistic double (and triple) stops and has chosen to play the sonatas with the accompaniment being a single cello (or double bass on two of the sonatas). The result is a surprisingly up-tempo and pleasant reading of the sonatas which gives new light to them.

... IMHO, that is. I might well have given Lester's solid but stolid performance five stars, just because I love these sonatas and wish I could play them myself. But I've been listening again and again to the more recent recording of three sonatas and two 'chamber' concertos by cellist Bruno Cocset, playing a cello specially constructed to 'handle' Boccherini's expectations -- extremely high passage work, ferociously awkward double stops, idiosyncratic bowing 'col legno' and bouncing on the strings -- and the result is so much more exciting, expressive, athletic that I doubt I'll ever play Lester's CD again. Still, Lester is a pro, and less than four stars would be unfair.

Some of the pieces are a little disappointing, perhaps mediocre, but the good sonatas are GREAT, and Richard Lester's playing is superior to any other cellist I have heard. I want to hear him play everything ever written for the cello. He's a fine musician.
