Following his critically acclaimed debut solo album, Théotime Langlois de Swarte returns with a new project alongside the “venerated elder statesman of early music” (Opera News), William Christie.
Poised at the convergence of 18th century French and Italian schools, Jean-Marie Leclair and Jean Baptiste Senaillé were the French Paganinis of their day. Technically challenging yet full of poetry, rhythmically varied and always dance-like, their sonatas find two fervent advocates in Théotime Langlois de Swarte. Christie and the youthful violin prodigy join forces to help us rediscover these still unjustly neglected pages.
“...France’s rising generation has some promising names. Topping that list for me is Le Consort founding violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte, whose recent The Mad Lover debut solo album for harmonia mundi was a stunner by any standard.”
