La Guerre's sonatas belong to the first examples of this genre in France. La Guerre composed 6 Violin Sonatas, which were published in 1707. The first two Sonatas which are presented in this volume show typical features of La Guerre's style: a sequence of numerous contrasting movements (the longer one of the two sonatas has got 7 movements) and a cello part which gains an own quality and is not just a colouring the sound of left-hand keyboard.
