Couperin & Moi / Christophe Rousset
LES TALENS LYRIQUES ROUSSET
Francois Couperin's music represents a pinnacle of the French Baroque aesthetic that, between 1720 and 1730, achieved a culmination in its balance, and its freedom in ornamentation, color and feeling. For Couperin's bicentenary, Christophe Rousset paints an intimate portrait of the composer by gathering some of the composer's most enchanting pieces. This selection of new and remastered recordings with solo performances and works featuring Rousset's ensemble Les Talens Lyriques offers music-lovers an ideal introduction to Couperin's artistry.
