Dear All, Another Ordre of François Couperin to close the week-end ! This one is quite short (only 4 pieces), all in Fmajor and quite joyful. I enjoyed recording them on the harpsichord. 1. La Marche des Gris-vêtus (the March of the Gris-vêtus or Gray-clad regiment) This march is quite parodic. I am playing in unequal eighth notes. 2. Les Bacchanales: Enjouements Bacchiques, Tendresses Bachiques, Fureurs bacchiques (The Bacchanales: Bacchic Revels, Bacchic Caresses, Bacchic Frenzies) This piece dedicated to Bacchus, the god of the vine, the feast and the wine. Hence it is a small suite in the suite, with three parts of various movements. The middle one (in F minor) is quite exquisite (to my taste). The last one starts in minor mode, but eventually comes back to the original F major: Bacchus' furor does not last long, provided he gets good wine ! 3. La Pateline (The Wheedler or Patelin's Piece) "Patelin" means sugary or disingenuous, but I don't fine these feelings really illustrated by the music which is just fresh and nice. 4. Le Réveil-matin (The Alarm Clock) This famous one uses alternatively to both hands an octave battery which evoques a clock. Thanks for listening and commenting !
