Jean-Marie Leclair was a master of fusing Italian and French idioms, conjoining the lyricism of the former with the dance momentum of the latter. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in his third book of violin sonatas. The sonatas in this album embody rich melodic beauty, drone and rustic elements - most vividly in the Tambourin of the C major sonata in which a hurdy-gurdy is employed- and demand tour de force virtuosity such as in the joyous Ciaccona of the G major sonata. De-scribed by Gramophone as 'technically and musically a marvel' (Naxos 8.572866), Adrian Butterfield completes his acclaimed traversal of Leclair's Violin Sonatas Books Nos.1-3.
