Boccherini Instrumenal Music (2011)

Boccherini

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

Luigi Boccherini was born into the family of singer and dou- ble-bassist Leopoldo Boccherini. Numerous sisters all became bal- 5 lerinas (his nephew was the renowned choreographer Salvatore Viganò), except one who opted for a singing career. Elder brother Giovanni Gastone was also a ballet dancer. Later he successfully trained for a new occupation as librettist, working with Salieri and writing the text for Haydn’s oratorio ‘The Return of Tobias’. Luigi may have selected a different profession due to a limp. He was the only member of the family prepared to follow in his father’s footsteps, taking lessons in singing and cello playing from an early age.

Luigi Boccherini became well-known as a virtuoso musician when he was still a child. In those days cellists had few opportu- nities to play as a soloist. Nonetheless Boccherini made his debut at the age of 13 with a concert in his hometown of Lucca, under the patronage of local maestro di capella Giacomo Puccini (a forefather of the great composer). A year later Luigi performed in Vienna and then in a number of Italian cities, in both orchestras and chamber ensembles. For six months he played with his friend the violinist Filippo Manfredi, in a quartet that also includ- ed Pietro Nardini and Giuseppe Cambini. They went down in his- tory as the first string quartet to give public concerts.

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

The Pratum Integrum orchestra performs with authentic instruments. The Latin name translates as ‘unmown meadow’ and refers to their broad-ranging repertoire from the Baroque and Classical periods, about which little is known to this day. This is the only orchestra in Russia in which all the groups of historic instruments are represented: strings, wind and percussion, and moreover all the instruments were made in the 18th to 19th centuries or copied from period examples. Pratum Integrum’s performances are a careful recreation using original treatises, primary sources and eye-witness accounts by contemporaries. 
The orchestra was established in Moscow in 2003 with sponsorship from the company Essential Music, immediately gaining a reputation as an extraordinary, outstanding and highly professional group of musicians with a predilection for fast tempos and vivid, fresh interpretations. 

Pavel Serbin

Pavel Serbin plays the cello and viola da gamba. He is also a teacher at the Moscow Conservatoire, a founder of the ensemble A la Russe and both soloist and artistic director of the orchestra Pratum Integrum. Born in Moscow in 1978, he graduated from the Gnessin Music School (studied with Vera Birina) and the Moscow Conservatoire (among his teachers: professors Dmitry Miller – violoncello, Alexander Rudin – chamber music, Alexander Galkovsky – quartet). He has also attended classes at the Royal Academy of Music in The Hague taught by Jaap ter Linden (Baroque cello) and Wieland Kuijken (viola da gamba). Serbin has won prizes at the Bruges Early Music Competition (1999, as part of the Gassenhauer Trio) and the competitions Premio Bonporti and Van Wassenaar (2000, in a duet with Olga Martynova). His dissertation was on cello music composed in Russia from the late 18th to early 19th centuries.
