Notes & Reviews:

Jean-Marie Leclair was recognized in his own century as the finest violinist and composer for the violin that France had produced. Apart from one opera, all of his music that survives is for the violin and his many concertos, sonatas, duos and trios reflect the fine quality of his music and possess a broad melodic appeal. Simon Standage displays his eminent flair on this remarkable disc, and is beautifully accompanied by Nicholas Parle.

BBC Music Magazine
Standage... imparts 'period' insights... He stresses the 'French' rather than the 'Corelli', and there's a generosity of spirit that characterises his whole approach... the powerfully cumulative Tempo di Ciaccona of the Sonata No. 8 ensures a red-letter finale to a beautifully recorded disc.
