Alexander Magnum and the Janacek Quartet are in top form, and the recorded sound is excellent. Boccherini's flute quitets are some of his finest compositions along wtih the string quitets. These are played with high technical and sensitivity to the sheer beauty of this music. This is a CD I will go back to many times.

I was suprised how well the interpretation here fits perfectly with those of the string quintets and oboe quintets in the Boccherini Edition which also should not be missed.

My only remaining wish is that that ensemble had also performed the Op. 19 and 55 flute quintets as well. Maybe they will in a later release.

If you like instrumental music of the classical period, I think you also will find this album a great pleasure!

I give the music 4 stars. It's nice and enjoyable, but not as lively as, say his oboe quintets. I deducted one star because the audio quality is disappointing. There is an overall "fuzziness" that is especially noticeable for the flute. Instead of a clean, crisp flute like on my other CDs, The "fuzz" is sometimes strong enough I can imagine there are two flutes playing. Maybe it's just my copy.

Much to my alarm, the Australian Knappertsbusch Association has been infected by Wagner-itis. I'm most unhappy. Whereas I'm semi-immune to the phenomenon, the same cannot be said of my confederates. With effort, I endure their goosesteps, clipped moustaches and threats being made to our Polish neighbours. The Death's Head monogram on the dunny paper came as somewhat of a surprise to me. But when I showed up at our palatial offices in the morning to find that a SdKfz 164 Nashorn had been parked in my bay and the voice of Titurel could be heard from within, it was time to act.

Einstein claims that Mozart's K 247, K 287, K 334 and the Nannerl Septet are superior to entire acts from Lohengrin and Tannhäuser. Who can dispute this statement? With this is mind, I played them incessantly over the public address system. They failed. If anything, they inflamed the situation: Die Feen is now being aired in the hallowed halls of the AKA.

In desperation, I turned at last to Boccherini's Opus 17 Flute Quintets as played by Alexandre Magnin and the Janacek Quartet in a traditional fashion. I enjoy Boccherini's music. In its melodic inspiration, balance and longing for wholeness, it gets me every time. Not a note is wasted. Here, this disc is a summation of Naxos at its best, offering as it does a great performance in superb sound. This is light music in the best sense of that word, not without depth (to wit, the Larghetto of the Third Quartet in D Minor) and with plenty of life-enhancing sunniness to its name. This is music from a more civilized age than our own. Opus 17 invites one to shed modernity.

What ensued? Things have returned to normal at the Australian Knappertsbusch Association.
