Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The trio sonata originated in Italy and was extensively used by Corelli and Vivaldi. Leclair had a special talent which declared itself very early on in his instrumental output and especially in Op.4. The slow movements of this collection display a contrapuntal sense unique in the French music of the time, a feel for the long phrase that justifies his nickname of 'the French Bach' - or "Everything announces him as the French Corelli", according to Charles-Henri de Blainville In this collection abounding in formal innovations and timbral experiments, Leclair is careful not to overload the harmonic language. And so French flowers of new colors bloomed in Corelli's classical garden!

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Trio Sonatas for two violins are from no later than 1734 and were republished in London in 1764. To my ears, they benefit quite a bit from the addition of continuo. Leclair is a master of mood and texture, so this is easy to listen to straight through. Musica Ficta is Guillaume Humbrecht and Marieke Bouche, violins; Nicolas Crnjanski, cello; and Julie Blais, harpsichord. Humbrecht plays a violin made in Bologna around 1750, and Bouche plays a violin made by Aegidius Kloz in 1772.
