It is said that, when the two great violinists Jean-Marie Leclair the Elder and Pietro Antonio Locatelli played on the same bill at a concert in Kassel in 1728, the former played "like an angel" and the latter "like a devil".
Leclair and Locatelli represented two utterly antithetical ends of the musical spectrum; Locatelli the extremes of expression of the vocal Italian style and Leclair the subtlety, grace and beauty of the dance-based French style. This programme of violin sonatas is designed to bring out the differences in these fascinating and highly influential musicians who both died 250 years ago in 1764.
