Jean-Marie Leclair has been called the “Corelli of France” and the “French Vivaldi”; yet though he was doubtless the most Italianate of French-born composers, his keen attention to harmonic detail, to the exactness of ornamentation, to melodic gracefulness, and to both strong and varied formal construction make him a true representative of French specificity.
