With the selection of this album, enthusiasts of Baroque music have an insight into the highly particular and individual style of Jean-Jacques-Baptiste Anet, a French violinist- composer, now hardly known but in his time considered to be one of the greatest violinists. He was born in Paris. He studied with Arcangelo Corelli for four years in Rome. Afterwards, he returned to Paris about 1700, and was met with the greatest success. There can be little doubt that by his example the principles of the great Italian school of violin-playing were first introduced into France. Probably owing to the jealousy of his French colleagues Anet soon left Paris again, and is said to have spent the rest of his life as conductor of the private band of a nobleman in Poland. He published three sets of sonatas for the violin. This release showcases sonatas for violin and basso-continuo.
