Notes & Reviews:

Jean-Marie Leclair's life ended with three knife stabs. Speculation continues to rage about his death, but this gifted French violinist's music clearly reveals that he lived his life to the fullest.

Opulent suites like the two "Recréations de Musique" came very naturally to the trained dancer Leclair. He was also trained as a violinist in the Corelli school and created works in the French formal tradition incorporating Italian influences - and did so at a time when French and Italian music-lovers were mortal enemies.

Breathtaking runs, extremely high registers, and extended doublestop passages - Leclair creates a whole fireworks display of the most brilliant violin artistry in his duos for two violins without bass. The result is a veritable orchestra with only two instruments.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
Leclair's music never disappoints, and this disc bears witness to that. He is one of the ensemble's favourite composers, and that shows. They play with zest and noticeable enthusiasm. Technically these performances are excellent, and musically very engaging... This is simply wonderful stuff.
