Jean Marie Leclair
Two Flute Sonatas and the Second Musical Recreation

Leclair SonatasThere is no music more delicious, seductive, sensuous, witty, or touching than the music of Jean-Marie Leclair.

To celebrate one of our preferred composer’s banner years (250th anniversary of his death), Four Nations with the support of Eiji Miki and Jane Hever, have recorded and offer you a CD of two late flute sonatas and the brilliant Deuxiéme Récréation de Musique.

Rave Review for "The Tragic Muse"

Couperin - The Tragic Muse CD CoverAppel’s finely nuanced performance makes these as fresh as if they were recorded yesterday. He knows instinctively when to use the registrations of the harpsichord to best advantage, how to delicately perform Couperin’s precise ornaments, and how to phrase each line, even those intertwined with each other, so that the music comes alive. For me, this is the one recording of these works to have and it is my hope that eventually all of them will appear. Highly recommended.
