Acclaimed violinist Karl Stobbe teams up with brilliant pianist Gwen Hoebig to pay tribute to composer Leclair's six violin sonatas. French composer Jean-Marie Leclair uses Italian influences in his compositions and paints beautiful musical imagery of landscapes within his melodic contours. Stobbe and Hoebig are quite sensitive to the details and nuances within these extraordinary violin compositions.

acques‐Martin Hotteterre was a virtuoso recorder player at the court of Louis XIV the Sun King, in the distinguished position of Musicien de la Chambre du Roi. He was a famous composer as well, mainly for his own instrument, for which he wrote numerous works, in which he integrated Italian elements, such as instrumental brilliance and prevalence for longer melodic lines, in the courtly French style of dance forms and lavish ornamentation.

The lineup of the Ardittis at this time was Irvine Arditti and David Alberman (violin), Levine Andrade (viola) and Rohan de Saram (cello).

Within his extended discography, Neeme Järvi has explored the work of some magnificent Eastern European composers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, recently including Sucho and Scharwenka. He here reveals the delightful, witty Hungarian style of Leó Weiner, who found inspiration in the music of Bartók, his near contemporary, and taught such great figures of the Hungarian musical scene as Solti and Doráti, but also Kurtág.

Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville, violinist of the royal chapel and just a bit younger than Rameau, is one of those French composers of the late Baroque generally relegated to the summary paragraph in historical surveys. His music is not terribly common on recordings, and the Brilliant label's resurrection of this late-'90s recording on Archiv, despite dreadful sound, is welcome.

Carlo Graziani, born in the Italian city of Asti c1710 was one of the earliest cello virtuosos. Well-travelled, he played in London with the 7-year-old Mozart in 1764 and left many sets of sonatas and several concertos for his instrument. He retired from the Prussian court in 1773, to be succeeded by Jean-Pierre Duport, but he continued to work for Friedrich Wilhelm II on a very generous pension. His sonatas provide a fascinating example of his artistry and ability: rapid passage work, double-stopping and extensive use of the upper register.

His sonatas provide a fascinating example of his artistry and ability: rapid passage work, double-stopping and extensive use of the upper register. They also illustrate the composer's view on the melodic capabilities of the instrument. The Six Sonatas Op.3 were dedicated to Friedrich Wilhelm II, who must have been an exceptionally gifted pupil.

The "Concerto grosso" was eminently popular in Europe at the beginning of the 18th century, Arcangelo Corelli having set the trend with his Opus 6 published around 1710, but probably written much earlier. The main attraction seems to have been the possibilities opened up by having two groups of musicians in dialogue with one another.

Antonio Vivaldi was one of the most successful composers of the Baroque era, best known for his iconic set concertos for violin, The Four Seasons. L’Estro Armonico Op.3 is among the most important printed editions of Vivaldi’s concertos; the works immediately met with great acclaim after their publication in 1711, giving way to over 30 reprints in the subsequent 32 years.
