The Glorious Violin Disc 6 (2017)

<em>The Glorious Violin</em> Disc 6

Influenced by the Italian Baroque innovators, generations of French violin virtuosi cultivated a distinct national style. Disc 6 begins with the Sonata in e minor for Two Violins by Jean-Marie Leclair, the first great violinist of the French school, who came to be celebrated as “the French Corelli.” Over a century later, the Belgian violinist, composer, and conductor Eugène Ysaÿe, who combined Joachim’s intellect with Paganini’s flair, would set listeners aflame with his intrepid approach to the instrument. In addition to composing his own masterpieces, Ysaÿe served as inspiration through his brilliant playing for composers from César Franck to Gabriel Fauré.
