The CD features the exceptional Six Sonatas for Two Violas by the talented French composer Jean-Marie Leclair. These sonatas showcase the richness and beauty of the viola art during the era of French Classicism, providing a delightful listening experience for both connoisseurs and casual music lovers. As a former ballet-dancer in France and Italy, Leclair brought a unique perspective and flair to his compositions, resulting in timeless pieces that continue to captivate audiences.

As violists of the highest level, Johannes Flieder and Dimitar Penkov have delved deeply into the style and content of Leclair's sonatas, allowing them to achieve complete creative synchrony and bring the music to life in an unforgettable way. Their skillful interpretation and transformation of their parts into garlands of melodies radiate true aesthetic pleasure.
