Two lots of seven violin sonatas from the heyday of the 18th century French Violin School: Whoever plays these sonatas (with basso continuo), will go on a voyage of discovery to a musical continent that is today mainly visited by specialists. But it is worth it! All of these sonatas appeared in much sought after publications of the time and were played across Europe. The editor of both of these Urtext editions, Gisela Meyn-Beckmann, is a renowned connoisseur of the repertoire and has ensured that there is a great deal of variety. The artistic consultant and violinist Erno Sebéstyen, who provided the fingerings and bowings for the solo part, provides valuable, individual suggestions for performing them.

    These two volumes of French baroque violin music were a wonderful discovery. Truly unusual music (and I know a lot of baroque music), particularly good to work on baroque bowing. I've been particularly delighted by the opportunity to work on second and fourth positions---the editor's fingering suggestions...

    are flawless. The music is a nice range of difficulty from intermediate "light" to quite advanced with interesting double-stops.
