CD Reviews

Great performances

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Couperin was one of the greatest French Baroque composers. In this collection of harpsichord work brought thrillingly to life my one of the equally superb playing by fellow Frenchman Christophe Rousset. Couperin's style combined French and Italian which brings together the sonorities and particularities of the harpsichord, His six books of hasichord suites are meant to portray both people and places and are quite evocative even though scholars have not been to discover who they are. I found that most of these pieces were very moving even the ones that move faster. Every classical collection should have these CDs because in my opinion only Bach's harpsichord music surpasses Couprin's."
Couperin pae Excellence

"This collection of the music of Francois Couperin Le Grand is Excellent and is a staple of my collection. Although it's not a complete set of the preludes and ordres it's expertly played and interpreted by Christopher Rousette. His artistry in towering and the pieces seem alive and vivacious! A Great Buy with lots of content! Can't recommend it enough, unless you want it all. Then, a different set would be necessary. I'd recommend the Michael Borgstede in that case."
