With itís newest release, Sono Luminus offers an example of the best of what happens when important repertoire, inspired performance and beautiful instruments meet cutting-edge technology. For the first time as one complete set and in high-definition on PureAudio Blu-ray: Jean-Marie LeClairís Complete Sonatas for Two Violins.

Leclairís contribution to music history cannot be overstated. His innovation as a composer revolutionized the French school of violin playing and his playing helped to raise the standard of playing in France immeasurably. By weaving together elements of Italian and French music, he created an entirely new compositional style. His duos influenced later composers such as Mozart, de Beriot, Viotti and, closer to our own time, Bartok and Berio.

Greg Ewer and Adam Lamotte currently hail from the Pacific Northwest. Greg is well known to audiences for his regular appearances with the Oregon Symphony, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Third Angle New Music Ensemble and Pink Martini. He is also the founder and artistic director of 45th Parallel. He holds faculty positions at Reed College and Lewis & Clark College.

Adam Lamotte has appeared as soloist, concertmaster and conductor of numerous orchestras throughout the country, including the Northwest Sinfonietta in Seattle, String Orchestra of the Rockies, Astoria Festival Orchestra, Portland Baroque Orchestra and the Maggini String Orchestra in Houston. He is the founder of The Orchestra, a conductor-less ensemble which creates 'tapestry' programs, combining drastically different pieces into a single concert experience. His is the Artistic Director of the Montana Baroque Festival.

Performed on period instruments, the album is sure to be a perfect addition to the collections of audiophiles, early music lovers and violin lovers.
