Poised at the convergence of 18th-century French and Italian schools, Jean-Marie Leclair and Jean-Baptiste Senaillé were the French Paganinis of their day. Technically challenging yet full of poetry, rhythmically varied and always dance-like, their sonatas find two fervent advocates in violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte and harpsichordist William Christie. Transcending generational differences, the “venerated elder statesman of early music” (Opera News) and the youthful violin prodigy join forces to help us rediscover these still unjustly neglected pages.
