Around the mid 1700s, chamber music was a pleasant, frivolous and dilettantish entertainment, in which small instrumental ensembles dialogued with one another. Cameristi di Santa Cecilia, a young ensemble (debuting at Valencia's Palau de la Musica in 2015) composed mainly of the first chair soloists from Orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia, is offering a brief overview of the most interesting production by Mozart and Boccherini. The programme is one of small masterpieces, such as Mozart's Flute Quartet K 285 and Oboe Quartet K 370, inspired by Haydn's quartets. These are followed by Flute Quintet no. 6, to better acquaint audiences with Luigi Boccherini, a prolific chamber music composer, a cello virtuoso, and ambassador in France and Spain of the "Italian model" of the string quartet and quintet. Then comes a contemporary of Beethoven, Anton Reicha, composer of Quintet for oboe and strings op. 107, who taught harmony and counterpoint to such pupils as Liszt, Berlioz, and Franck, in addition to composing 24 wind quintets.
