The new recording is centred on François Francoeur, a celebrated member of the Vingtquatre Violons du Roi and of Le Concert Spirituel in France and co-director, later in his career, with François Rebel, of the Paris Opéra. The ten violin sonatas on the present double album represent the complete Premier Livre de sonates à violon seul et basse continue, published in Paris in 1720.
The writing brings together the elegance of the French style and the energy of the Italian in a perfect blend of both aesthetics, with Francoeur presenting his own unique voice in this collection in an effective manner.
The music is tuneful and fresh, refined and robust, complete with tender melodies, wild dances, pastorales and movements of unabashed virtuosity.
