"The playing is splendid, richly coloured, elegant and agile. And the music is a delight, vibrant with rocketing scales, resonant chords and bold echoes between the violins. The recorded sound is thrillingly resonant."
- The Oregonian

Greg Ewer and Adam Lamotte grew up together in Houston and are both based in Portland, Oregon. Ewer is best known for his regular appearances with the Oregon Symphony. Lamotte has appeared as soloist, concertmaster and conductor of numerous orchestras throughout the US, including the Northwest Sinfonietta in Seattle. The two violinists had been performing these Jean-Marie Leclair works for years together before finally recording all 12 Sonatas for Two Violins on Baroque instruments in 2013, making this the first complete recorded set of this music.

"In 2001, our search for great music for two violins led us to discover the Duo Sonatas of Jean-Marie Leclair, two sets of little known gems by this great French Baroque composer. We are proud to announce the release of a landmark recording of these 12 incredible pieces of music, available for the first time as a complete set and in high definition. Leclair’s contribution to music history cannot be overstated and neither can our excitement about this project!"

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
