The trio sonata originated in Italy and was extensively used by Corelli and Vivaldi.
Leclair had a special talent which declared itself very early on in his instrumental output and especially in Op.4. The slow movements of this collection display a contrapuntal sense unique in the French music of the time, a feel for the long phrase that justifies his nickname of ‘the French Bach’ – or “Everything announces him as the French Corelli”, according to Charles-Henri de Blainville
In this collection abounding in formal innovations and timbral experiments, Leclair is careful not to overload the harmonic language. And so French flowers of new colours bloomed in Corelli’s classical garden!
