JEAN-MARIE LECLAIR (1697-1764): Violin Sonatas, Op. 1, Nos. 5-8.
Catalogue Number: 10L032
Description: There are more recordings of these Op. 1 sonatas (1723) on the flute than on Leclair's own instrument, making this release particularly valuable. Leclair was the founder of the French violin school and he combined French elegance with a Corellian lyricism in this set. Adrian Butterfield (violin), Alison McGillivray (viola da gamba), Laurence Cummings (harpsichord).
