Complete List of Luigi Boccherini String Quartets Recordings

Luigi Boccherini was Italian composer who composed a large number of chamber music. His string quartets numbered more than 100 works, unfortunately some are lost. Here are the complete list of Luigi Boccherini's string quartets and its recordings. There are 106 string quartets in the Gerard Catalog. The most recorded quartets seems to be the Six quartets in Opus 32. At the moment only less than 50% of all Boccherini string quartets got recorded, well according to my Amazon research only. Hopefully there will be more ensemble playing his pieces.
