The music of this distant cousin of Couperin le Grand illuminates every facet of the transition from the native art of French harpsichordists to the early international classical style. Couperin's special interest in new instrumental sounds, coinciding with the gradual ascendancy of the piano over the harpsichord, is beautifully demonstrated in the music and detailed preface of this edition.
