LE ROUX: Complete Works for 1 and 2 Harpsichords

Gaspard Le Roux belongs to the very first rank of clavecinistes of the seventeenth century, on a par with Louis Couperin. For sustained invention, refinement of ornamentation and profundity of expression, Le Roux’s Pièces de clavecin demonstrate that he had few equals. The impressively virtuosic Sarabande en 12 couplets (Track 40) concludes with an almost impressionistic variation, suggestive of moonlight sparkling on water flowing from a Moorish fountain.


Le Roux, Gaspard
