LECLAIR: Chamber Music with Flute (Complete)

The music of Jean-Marie Leclair exemplifies the values and aspirations of the Age of Enlightenment: clarity and rationality; balance, harmony and proportion; and avoidance of excess or exaggeration. Although Leclair is today more commonly remembered as the founder of the French school of violin writing, his flute compositions brilliantly exploit the technical and expressive resources of the instrument. Of particular note is the magisterial Chaconne from the Deuxième récréation de musique, described by John Solum (author of The Early Flute) as ‘one of the greatest movements ever conceived for flute’.
