About the album

For the first time ever in the history of piano recording, Pierre Chalmeau immersed himself into the fascinating world of Louis Couperin, François’ uncle. He chose to dedicate him his first opus.
Louis Couperin is considered as a key figure and the founder of the French school of harpsichord. His Pièces de clavecin - about 130 préludes, sarabandes, chaconnes and other dances - constitute the gem of 17th century French music.

Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte der Klaviereinspielung tauchte Pierre Chalmeau in die faszinierende Welt des Louis Couperin, des Onkels von François, ein. Er entschied sich, ihm sein erstes Werk zu widmen.
Louis Couperin gilt als Schlüsselfigur und Begründer der französischen Schule für Cembalo. Seine Pièces de clavecin - etwa 130 Préludes, Sarabandes, Chaconnes und andere Tänze - sind das Schmuckstück der französischen Musik des 17. Jahrhunderts.
