Generations - Violin Sonatas By Senaille And Lecla
Label: harmonia mundi
At the crossroads between the French and Italian schools of the 18th century, Leclair and Senaillé were the French Paganinis of their day. Technically demanding yet full of poetry, rhythmically varied and always dance-like, their sonatas find two ardent champions in Théotime Langlois de Swarte and William Christie. Across generational divides, the "revered elder statesman of early music" (Opera News) and the youthful violin prodigy team up to help us rediscover these still unjustly neglected sides.
