The Couperins at the harpsichord

This series took place onFrom to

The keyboard music of the French Baroque is one of its most extraordinary legacies, with the Couperin family in a prominent place. The close to 140 pieces by Louis (1626-1661) and the 220 from the four books of Pièces de clavecin by François “le Grand” (1668-1733) soon became references of the European harpsichord repertory. But the contribution of this important saga of musicians extended to other members of family, lesser known today, who were also leading composers of their time. The vision this series presents of the Couperins is completed with Armand-Louis (1727-1789) and Gervais-François (1759-1826), who took the harpsichord to its peak for the last time.
