Théotime Langlois de Swarte continues his exploration of the violin repertory of the early eighteenth century. In this program, he highlights the links between three leading composers for the instrument, whose popularity was burgeoning at the time: Antonio Vivaldi, father of the violin concerto, and two of his most brilliant younger contemporaries, Pietro Locatelli and Jean-Marie Leclair. An album which, beyond the interplay of echoes and personal connections, showcases the extraordinary versatility of an instrument as virtuosic as it is poetic.
