COUPERIN, F.: Pieces de violes avec la basse chifree: Suites Nos. 1 and 2 / Pieces de Clavecin: 27th Ordre (Perkola, Hakkinen)

François Couperin wrote some of France’s greatest music in the classical style. The Suites for Viola da gamba and Harpsichord are late works, published in 1728, and are perfect examples of his richly expressive style which here draws upon Italian models as well as, perhaps, celebrating another genius of the French school, Marin Marais, who had died in the year the Suites were published. Intense and passionate, the suites offer lyricism and virtuosity, Italian bravura and French richness. The last of Couperin’s harpsichord ordres (or suites) consists of four varied pieces, including Les Chinois, an early example of interest in China in Western music.
