Notes and Editorial Reviews



Revelatory performances of these Italian violin sonatas with a strong French accent

Was Leclair a great composer? John Holloway and colleagues set out the case in his favour here with a most beguiling selection that will serve as an education for many. In these pages, critic Duncan Druce calls the recording “a revelation”. The musicianship throughout is first-class, led – appropriately given Leclair’s reputation on the instrument – by violinist Holloway’s melodic, idiomatic playing.

-- Gramophone [4/2009]
