Francois Couperin And Jean-henri D'anglebert Compl
Format: COMPACT DISC
This release contains the complete works for organ by François Couperin, composer to the court of Louis XIV. James Johnstone continues his series of recordings on the great baroque organs of Europe on the 1699 organ by Julien Tribuot, Louis XIV’s organ builder, now in the Eglise St Martin in Seurre, Burgundy. This last surviving instrument by a revered builder is close to its original condition. A leading baroque organist, James Johnstone recorded these works as part of 350th anniversary celebrations of Couperin's birth in 2018, and completes Metronome’s survey of Couperin’s complete keyboard works. The harpsichordist and organist, James Johnstone, enjoys a varied musical life working mainly within the period instrument world. After studies in London and Holland James has forged a career as recitalist, chamber musician, continuo player and teacher. He is a member of a number of ensembles, currently Trio Sonnerie, Harmonie Universelle (Köln), iFuriosi (Toronto) and the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra.
