Among the 48 sonatas Leclair wrote, there are nine which he declared to be suitable for flute. “They sound so comfortable on the instrument that was such a favourite in eighteenth-century France that they have become an invaluable part of the baroque flautist’s repertoire.” Gramophone on a previous release of Leclair’s Flute Sonatas.

BBC Music Magazine

February 2008

****

“Modern pitch and Fenwick's tone suggest a modern flute, but he's no less stylish for all that. Eight solo sonatas and two trios from the founder of the French violin school creating distinctive, often ingenious, flute music.”

MusicWeb International

“[Leclair’s] sonatas have a sparkle which sets them apart from his contemporaries… there is a definite and pervasive sense of personality throughout…. The music, as played here, is fresh and imaginative, with the pre-requisite grandeur as necessary, contrasting the frivolous and technical fast movements and expressive adagios.”
