Carmina Quartet performs Boccherini - Fandango

Boccherini – Fandango (The Carmina Quartet)

The Carmina Quartet performs Fandango from the Italian classical era composer and cellist Luigi Boccherini’s Guitar Quintet G. 448 in D Major. Matthias Enderle, violin 1, Susanne Frank, violin 2, Wendy Champney, viola and Stephan Goerner, violoncello with Rolf Lislevand, guitar and Nina Corti, castanets.

Here another piece by the Carmina Quartet: Boccherini’s “Passa Calle” became famous as Russell Crowe (Capt. Jack Aubrey) and Paul Bettany (Dr. Stephen Maturin) used to play this piece (among others) in Peter Weir’s movie “Master and Commander – The Far Side of the World”). In this video clip, Susanne Frank, Stephan Goerner (Carmina Quartet) and Rolf Lislevand play the “Passa Calle” (4th movement from Boccherini’s popular “Night music in the streets of Madrid”) in a version for cello, violin and guitar. A track from Carmina’s latest SACD “Fandango” with music by Haydn and Boccherini.
