Poised at the convergence of 18th century French and Italian schools, Leclair and 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 William Christie and Théotime Langlois de Swarte. 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.
