Pieces De Clavecin
Format: COMPACT DISC
For the first time ever in the history of piano recording, Pierre Chalmeau immersed himself into the fascinating world of Louis Couperin, François’ uncle. Louis Couperin is considered as a key figure and the founder of the French school of harpsichord. His Pièces de clavecin constitute the gem of 17th century French music. Introduced to the piano by his pianist and conductor father, Pierre Chalmeau began his training at the CNR in Paris where he obtained a first prize in piano and chamber music in 2002. In addition to his solo work, he performs in the Notamo Duo alongside clarinetist Carjez Gerretsen, wherein they explore the great German cycles.
