Couperin was employed by Louis XIV and after the king died, the composer had time to organise the publication of his works. In 1722 he published “Concerts royaux” and in 1724, “Les Goûts réunis ou Nouveaux Concerts”. Compositions from these publications are performed by Thomas Indermühle, Henk de Wit and Ursula Dütschler.
“The sprightly dance movements in this recording are done with tremendous élan, the more plangent Gravement sections not overly weighed down with artificially sought emotional cares, the Tendrement and other moods nicely poised and performed with courtly taste. If you are a fan of this period and national style, then this recording will appeal greatly. Be aware however, that other instrumentations are available.”
