The Couperin musical family represents another glimpse of the 17th century France. I would say that their music is alike a scented air, rustling trees and water murmuring, that awake a feeling of a true harmony in our soul. And this impression fits perfectly with the style of life and moods of that time.
The Couperin family, representing a classical French Baroque school, is famous with its wonderful string, organ and clavecin compositions. Francois Couperin (1668-1733), called le Grand/the Great, is one of brilliant representatives of this talented kin. His music is sophisticated, rather versatile and pleasant for listening. He composed both spiritual and secular pieces, so none would be left disappointed.
As for me, I’m fond of his Les Concerts Royaux, as they contain a unique balance of instruments only a true music genius knew to create to make the world hear the sounds of Divinity.
Vive le Roy! 🙂
