About this Recording

LECLAIR, J.-M.: Violin Sonatas, Op. 1, Nos. 9-12 (Butterfield, McGillivray, Cummings)

Leclair’s studies of dancing and violin, and his admiration for Corelli’s influential set of Violin Sonatas Op. 5, stimulated the young Frenchman to compose his own set of twelve Violin Sonatas Op. 1 in which the fusion of the two national styles, les goûts réunis, is charmingly achieved. This third volume presents the last four sonatas, whose bright and energetic fast movements and luminously singing slow movements are complemented by the rustic quality of their dances. Volumes 1 (Nos. 1–4, 8.570888) and 2 (Nos. 5–8, 8.570889) are also available.
