François Francœur (1698-1787) was, besides Jean-Marie Leclair, one of the most important representatives of the French violin school. He was able to combine the technical virtuosity of Italian provenance with French elegance and smooth melody. The Deuxième Livre de sonate à violon seul et basse continue was published around 1730. The baroque violinist Anaïs Chen presents, together with Daniel Rosin (cello) and María González (harpsichord), six of the twelve sonatas, which, on their first hearing, make you want more music from Francœur.
