Misc. Comments

The editor of these three works specifies in his (removed) Preface that Boccherini's op.60 no.1 was copied by L.Picquot who succeeded after 18 years of vain research in gathering the whole series of 12 quintets op.60 & 62 except for no.4 op.60. Picquot insists that contrary to most of Boccherini's other quintets, these are original works and his op.60 nos.2, 3, 5 & 6 were manuscripted by the composer himself (see L. Picquot, Notice sur la vie et les ouvrages de Luigi Boccherini suivie du catalogue raisonné de toutes ses oeuvres, tant publiées qu'inédites, Paris 1851, which can be found by using Google Book Search).
