(1669 - 1732)

An organist, harpsichordist and composer, Louis Marchand was born in Lyons but moved to Paris and eventually entered the service of the King. Once he had left Paris (either exiled by Louis XIV or pursued by his estranged wife’s demands for money) he was famous as a virtuoso, even if he seemingly avoided direct competition with Bach in Dresden. He published relatively little of his music.

Keyboard Music

Marchand’s published compositions include some pieces for harpsichord and a larger collection of organ pieces.
