Description

Remastered from the original LP recording, this performance is now available on CD. Leclair was one of the best violinists of his times. The story is told that he had to compete in a musical duel with Locatelli in Kassel then a most highly popular form of musical entertainment. The chronicler describes his "devilish" playing, contrasting it with the "angelic" style of his Italian rival. His trio sonatas suggest familiarity with the Italian school but also draw on entirely independent French traditions and shine with ingenious inventions and harmonic refinements. Musica Alta Ripa has worked with MDG for many years, successfully establishing itself as one of the most sought-after early music ensembles. The ensemble's recordings have earned many international awards, and the vibrant joy of these performances is a source of pure listening fun.
