Six Sonatas - for 2 Violins, Opus 3

Six Sonatas - for 2 Violins, Opus 3 composed by Jean-Marie Leclair (1697-1764). Edited by Wiard Rost. Violin Duets. For 2 violins. Baroque and Classical Period. Difficulty: difficult. Set of performance parts. Bowings and fingerings. Composed 1730. 46 pages. Published by Heinrichshofen Verlag (PE.N06006).

With bowings and fingerings. Baroque and Classical Period. 9x12 inches.

Jean-Marie Leclair, who is considered to have founded the French violin school, was born in Lyon on May 10th, 1697. Famed as both violinist and composer (many suites, sonatas, and concerti survive, along with his sole opera, Scylla et Glaucus), he drew successfully upon all of Europe's national styles. He was married twice, first to Marie-Rose Casthane, a dancer who died in 1728; then to the engraver Louise Roussel. When his second marriage ended in divorce, Leclair purchased a small house in a dangerous neighborhood of Paris, where he was found stabbed to death on October 22nd, 1764. There is a possibility his ex-wife may have been behind it, but far stronger suspicion rests on the composer's nephew, Guillaume-Francois Vial. The murder remains nonetheless a mystery to this day.

    Millis, MA
    Difficulty Level:
  • May 11, 2006 Great sonatas with intertwining melodies

    These six sonatas by Jean-Marie Leclair are wonderful repetoire that should be played much more. The melodies flow back and forth between the first and second violins frequently making both parts fun to play. Once you've played them you'll always want to go back and play them...

    again. The driving energy in the wonderful melodies is amazing.
