Couperin, F: Concerts 1-4 (Les Concerts Royaux)


“…Couperin listed a wide range of options - violin, flute, oboe, viol and bassoon - while he himself played harpsichord, presumably expanding its role to that of chordal continuo. …for a month of Sundays, Jordi Savall's colourful options are a delight. The final Concert offers a kaleidoscope of colours, all the more varied by continuo of harpsichord and theorbo/guitar and ending with a wonderfully spirited 'Forlane en rondeau'.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2005 ****

The first album made by Jordi Savall for the Astrée label!

After Mr Marin Marais and Sainte Colombe, Jordi Savall presents another summit of music for viola da gamba in his Heritage collection. This 1975 disc confirmed Couperin as a master, if proof were needed, and of his affinitities with the masters of French music.

This remastered high definition multi-channel SACD and very informative booklet complete this reissue of a must-have of the Savall oeuvre.

“Savall and co play with a warmth, a passion and a sense of freedom unsurpassed since.” Sunday Times, 16th December 2012

“Although still at the beginning of his career as a viol player, Savall, serenely supported by Ton Koopman, plays with consummate mastery of Couperin's style. He caresses the notes, and shapes and moulds the phrases, adding just the right amount of silence, allowing the music to breathe. However, some tempi now seems a little slow.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2013

“handsomely packaged with excellent documentation … his [Savall] account of the ‘Sarabande grave’ has all the requisite poetry and melancholy” Classical Music, June 2013

“Jordi Savall’s interpretations of the two suites, which comprise Couperin’s Pièces de Viole, are free, spontaneous and sensible to the elusive nuances of what Couperin called ‘le bon goût’.” Early Music Today
