Boccherini's style is completely characteristic of the period in which he lived, the period, that is, of Haydn, rather than that of Mozart or Beethoven. He enjoyed a reputation for his facility as a composer, leaving some 460 or so compositions. A great deal of his music is designed to exploit the technical resources of the cello, in concertos, sonatas and, particularly, in chamber music for various numbers of instruments, including a remarkable series of works for string quintet with two cellos, the first of which is given a concertante part.
There are problems in dating the sonatas that Boccherini wrote for cello and basso continuo, 34 of which survive. Mention is made in the Mercure de France of his performance of such a sonata in the Salle des Suisses of the Tuileries in Paris in 1768 and works published in his lifetime include a set of six sonatas issued in London about the year 1770. His style, however, does not appear to have changed vastly during his creative life.
