Couperin & Moi
Christophe Rousset, Les Talens Lyriques
For François Couperin’s bicentenary, Christophe Rousset draws
an intimate portrait of the composer by gathering the most enchanting pieces
of this mysterious musician. Their numerous beauties reveal slowly.
With Couperin, we must speak above all of poetry but also of humour, of delicate pictorial qualities and the exquisite refinement of a French aesthetic that, between 1720 and 1730, achieved a culmination in its balance and its freedom in the art of volute and ornamentation, colour and feeling. Couperin has often been compared, quite rightly, to Watteau or Marivaux.
An incredible ending for this anniversary year. The tireless and demanding French music guardian Christophe Rousset celebrates Couperin with a sophisticated selection of new and reedited pieces. Solo or with his faithful Les Talens Lyriques, Christophe Rousset’s compilation aims at passionate and experienced collectors and musiclovers seeking an introduction to François Couperin.
