Luigi Boccherini (19 February 1743 – 28 May 1805) was an Italian composer and cellist who impacted the development of the string quartet as a musical genre by writing the first work for a string quintet and a string quintet with piano. Sacred music, symphonies, and concerti are among his roughly 500 compositions. Boccherini and his father were asked to perform in Vienna's Imperial Theatre orchestra. Boccherini made his debut as a composer with his Six Trios for Two Violins and Cello, G 77–82, during his second trip to Vienna (1760).
