Notes & Reviews:

Few French musicians of the 18th century were as appreciated during their lifetime as the virtuoso violinist Jean-Marie Leclair. Three years after his tragic death - he was murdered in 1764 by a jealous nephew - Charles Henry de Blainville remembered him as "the Corelli of France." In 1754, Friedrich Wilhelm Marpurg placed Leclair on the level of Telemann, Handel, and members of the Bach family in terms of harmony and counterpoint; for Francesco Galeazzi in 1790, he was the sole Frenchman on the list of principal masters of the violin in 18th-century Europe, alongside such major names as Corelli and Vivaldi. His Violin Concertos, Op. 7 are presented here by brilliant violinist Luis Otavio Santos (winner of a Diapason d'Or for his album of Leclair sonatas released by Ramée) and Les Muffatti, under the magic wand of Peter Van Heyghen.
