WorksViolin Concertos (6), op.7
ArtistsFabio Biondi (violin)
Leclair published twelve concertos for violin in two sets, Op.7 (c.1737) and Op.10 (c.1743). The Op.7 collection, of which four concertos have been included in this recording, is without doubt partially made up of works which Leclair performed at the Concert Spirituel between 1728 and 1736.
Today, we are aware of the style employed by Leclair in his violin playing through his own writings and concert reviews from the time. His uncompromising ideal of performance is of a truly Apollonian nature: precision and integrity in execution, economy with the use of effects, accurate intonation and nobility of expression – all features brought to this new recording by Fabio Biondi and his already legendary ensemble, Europa Galante.
The scholar Louis Castelain of the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles provides the booklet notes.
