Notes and Editorial Reviews


It feels as though Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante have hit the nail on the head with these readings of the Op. 7 violin concertos. Brightness and delicacy reign; even in the face of yawning temptation it's refinement that always carries the day.

Biondi himself brings a Leclair-worthy combination of tenderness and precision to his solo lines. All in all, Leclair couldn't have been displayed in a more warmly faithful light.
