Couperin: Keyboard Music 2


Angela Hewitt’s hugely successful first volume of François Couperin’s Pièces de Clavecin presented works from Books II and III of the cycle. Here we have a further twenty-one pieces, this time from Book IV.

Critical acclaim for the first volume (Hyperion CDA67440) surely makes this new disc a self-recommending classic.

“In the expert hands of Angela Hewitt, François ‘Le Grand’ Couperin makes as easy a transition from harpsichord to piano as has Bach. The difference is that many people may – and should – now be listening to Couperin for the first time.” (The Guardian)

“For someone of Angela Hewitt’s pulling power to invite her fans so enticingly down so unfashionable a path…is brave; and it’s right”(BBC Music Magazine)
