Description: Leclair's brilliant and virtuosic synthesis of French and Italian styles are on view here both in the two-violin sonatas and in the much longer, multi-movement trio sonata-like Récréations (the performers have added forces - recorder, oboe, two violins, cello and a continuo of theorbo/ baroque guitar and harpsichord). Musica Alta Ripa.
