Navigation etc.

Only the first two Quintets, G.340 (with variations on the Follia in the Trio of the Minuetto) and G.341 (with the original version of the famous Fandango) have been commercially recorded (both by Quintetto Boccherini). The Minuetto of G.343 has an unusual structure with two different Presto sections instead of the Trio: Minuetto - Presto I - Minuetto - Presto II - Minuetto (modified) - Presto I - Minuetto - Presto II - Minuetto (modified).

I presume 1788 is publication, not composition date.
