Notes and Editorial Reviews

The violin sonatas peformed here are considered to be Leclair's most exciting music and finally receive the exposure they deserve in this thrilling new recording. Coupled with this repertoire are two keyboard portraits of his colleague the viol player Antoine Forqueray by Francois Couperin and Jacques Duphly, and Forqueray's own keyboard portrait of Leclair which demonstrate the characteristic style of the French composers of this period. Simon Standage displays his eminent flair on this remarkable disc, and is beautifully accompanied by Nicholas Parle.
