 Superb Listening May 25, 2013 By Anthony G. (valley stream, NY) See All My Reviews "Don't be tempted to overlook Leclair and his music. He is highly underrated and unjustly neglected these days. This title, Complete Flute Chamber Music, will become the best cd of flute music you will ever hear and own. A must for music lovers of the flute for all periods and for all tastes. A gem that sparkles!" Report Abuse
