French baroque composer and violinist, Jean-Marie Leclair (1697-1764) is considered to have founded the French Violin school. His expertise led him to compose significant works for the instrument. His sublime Sonata in C is superbly arranged for Alto Saxophone by contemporary French saxophonist, Jean-Marie Londeix.
Leclair's Sonata in C for Violin is one of his most prolific and best remembered works. Londeix's arrangement for Saxophone of Leclair's Sonata in C includes adaptions for the instrument, such as dynamics, phrase marks, performance and tempo directions, articulation and breath marks.
Londeix's rearrangement for the Saxophone of Leclair's popular Sonata in C is exquisite, making the baroque genre accessible to the Saxophone, a relatively modern instrument.
