Misc. Comments

  • Opus numbering of Boccherini's oeuvre is always confusing. These sextets were published in Paris, France by Chez le Sr Sieber as Boccherini's Op.24. Yves Gerard in his description of Boccherini's output followed the order of Boccherini's autograph catalogue, hence Boccherini Op.23/1 was designated G.454 and so on until Op.23/6 = G.459. (G.460 is regarded not to be of Boccherini's hand.)
  • However, the publisher, changed the order of the sextets as follows:
  1. Op.24/1 = Op.23/1 = G.454, E-flat-major
  2. Op.24/2 = Op.23/2 = G.455, B-flat-major
  3. Op.24/3 = Op.23/5 = G.458, D-major
  4. Op.24/4 = Op.23/6 = G.459, F-major
  5. Op.24/5 = Op.23/4 = G.457, F-minor
  6. Op.24/6 = Op.23/3 = G.456, E-major
