The Transcriptions for two Instruments in Luigi Boccherini’s Catalogue

English abstract

A somewhat interesting aspect of Yves Gérard's catalogue of the works of Luigi Bocchrini concerns the transcriptions, most of which were not carried out by the composer himself. This text deals with the transcriptions for two instruments, which were made from Trios, Quartets or Quintets alike, and published in London, Paris or The Hage. This repertoire was instrumental in making Boccherini's music better known, and also offers an interesting insight into music publishers' commercial practices.
