Jean Marie LeClair's Up and Downs

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Baroque composer LeClair lived a soap opera life. His music doesn't reflect that, however. This is his "Second Recreation of Music," for two flutes and continuo. The flutists are Jed Wentz and Maria Moonen, with the Dutch group Musica ad Rhenum.
