One of the graceful quintets with two cellos by the Italian-born, Spanish-based Luigi Boccherini opens this programme; the most dramatic and intense of Mozart's quintets with two violas closes it. In between come a quartet movement by Hugo Wolf drenched in Italian sunshine, and a group of Mendelssohn songs sung by baritone Roderick Williams.
