Couperin

By Ann Carr-boyd

Regular price $50.00 Sale

Spoken voice, harpsichord and ensemble, c.10'15.  Composed 1974.
The spoken words are taken from Francois Couperin’s L’Art de toucher Le Clavecin, a manual on harpsichord playing which Couperin wrote in 1716. In it he covers very completely all matters of style and technique, from which a few sentences have been chosen as a starting point for this composition, which is a homage to French music of all periods.
