Since these trios are not mentioned in Boccherini's autograph catalogue, their authorship ist doubtful. Y. Gérard, Catalogue of the Works of Boccherini, Oxford 1969, 141 regards them as probably authentic works. The beginning of the first trio is similar to the beginning of Boccherini's first string quartet Op.2 No.1 (G. 159).
