  • Description

    This magnificent anthology of late 17th-century French harpsichord music presents a complete autograph manuscript of Marc Roger Normand Couperin, a newly discovered member of the Couperin dynasty (he was François Couperin's cousin). He worked at the Court of Turin and was known as 'Coperino'. The manuscript contains 57 pieces, including many fine works composed or arranged by 'Coperino' himself, and beautiful works by Chambonnières, d'Anglebert, Le Bègue and Hardel, as well as the otherwise unknown La Pierre family. All of this music is completely new to disc, as is the composer.
