WorksViolin Concertos (6), op.7
ArtistsLeila Schaygeh (violin)
La Cetra Barockorchester Basel
In her booklet notes, Leila Schayegh, who currently teaches Baroque violin at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, comments on how Leclair - an outstanding violinist himself - was in thrall to the Italian instrumental style but was concerned that his music should not be played too fast; he was praised for his netteté, a combination of impeccable technique and musical perfection.
This first volume in Schayegh’s projected series of recordings of the Leclair violin concertos embraces the Nos 2 and 6 works from the two six-concerto series of Opp. 7 and 10. The G minor Concerto, op.10 no.6, is frequently cited as being the highpoint of Leclair’s output.
For this dazzling new exhibition of the Swiss violinist’s art, Schayegh – who plays a late-seventeenth-century Andrea Guarneri instrument – directs Basel’s La Cetra Barockorchester, which features Eva Saladin as its Konzertmeisterin and Sonoko Asabuki as a further principal violinist (Leclair’s concertos often called for up to three soloists).
