  • Description

    After an intensive and thorough exploration of rather unknown repertoire, the hugely talented Ensemble Diderot presents here one of the summits of French chamber music from the 18th century.

    BBC Radio 3's Record Review says of this recording:

    "This is the French baroque trio sonata at its finest, and in Johannes Pramsohler and his Ensemble Diderot, Leclair has champions who need no urging to bring out not only the elegance and invention of his music, but the character."

    BBC Music Magazine: "Ensemble Diderot brings out the nobility and grandeur of the music."

    Inspired by their vast knowledge of the trio sonata genre, the
    creative musicians around Johannes Pramsohler assess Leclair's masterpiece completely anew and deliver their most mature recording so far.

    Six gemstones, polished by four of the most interesting minds in the Early Music scene are presented here on this new recording.

    Previous recordings from Ensemble Diderot and Johannes Pramsohler have been chosen as a Gramophone Editor's Choice and have gained universal critical acclaim:

    "Pramsohler shines: virtuosities silkily spilling out, double-stops clean and mellifluous, and with elegant shading and ornamentations. Superlative from start to finish."

    "The Ensemble Diderot plays these works with nimble expertise and good spirit"
