Synopsis

Album Description
Couperin is an absolute master in grandeur without grandiloquence, tenderness avoiding sappiness, and lightness without affectation. Nervousness, vivacity, and vigor at their best are to be found in his work. His music is sparkling and proud, laden with harsh and powerful emotions. It is this rarely heard Couperin that Frédérick Haas brings to our ears through a selection of forceful pieces.
