Over het album
Acclaimed Netherlands-based harpsichordist Guillermo Brachetta returns to Resonus to begin a major recording of the complete Pièces de
Clavecin by the French Baroque master, François Couperin, starting with the fourth book. Often wistful and valedictory in tone, the fourth and final book of this landmark collection of keyboard music was completed at the very end of Couperin’s life and in the grip of failing health. Containing many vivid
musical representations of real characters, Couperin’s grace and elegance in writing for this instrument is evident to the very end.
