They are two Italian composers who spent much of their lives in Spain, where they worked for the king and his family as well as for other noblemen. Following Boccherini in 1768, Brunetti arrived around 1760. They also have in common their principal and very notable dedication to instrumental music, both symphonic and chamber, in contrast to their scant production in the field of vocal music. These two musicians’ scores will be performed by José Antonio Gonzaga (oboe), Cecilia Blanes and María Vizcaíno (violin), Razvan Cociodar and Blanca Sellers (violas), and Tilman Mahrenholz (cello).
Cayetano Brunetti (1744, Fano, Papal States–December 16, 1798, Colmenar de Oreja, Madrid, Spain), also known as Gaetano Brunetti, was a Spanish composer and violinist of Italian origin who worked at the court of Madrid in the service of kings Charles III and Charles IV. Cayetano (or Gaetano) Brunetti is one of the most important composers of the second half of the 18th century in Spain. His oeuvre includes a great deal of chamber music and symphonic music. He worked for the most important Spanish noble families: the Dukes of Osuna and the Dukes of Alba. He composed above all for the Prince of Asturias, the future Charles IV, serving as his violin teacher, court musician, and, eventually, conductor of the Royal Chamber Orchestra. Ridolfo Luigi Boccherini (February 19, 1743, Luca, Tuscany, Italy–May 28, 1805, Madrid, Spain) was an Italian composer and cellist who settled in Spain at the age of twenty-five, where he spent most of his career as a composer. Aesthetically, he belongs to the galant style; some 1,000 manuscripts of his music still survive, including autograph works and period copies, although many of them were burned during the Spanish Civil War.
