Louis Couperin was probably the most genius harpsichord composer that ever lived. For this CD, Richard Egarr, one ofthe greatest exponents of the harpsichord today, put together four Suites from Couperin's musical legacy, including all the music in A, F, and D major Couperin left. This program with music written for Louis XIV is the pendant of an album with music for Louis XIV' contemporary, the English king Charles II.
