    Dear All,
    Hope these pieces can bring back some life (and joy) to this quite desertified site ! In this suite of 8 short pieces, we find the 'Barricades mystérieuses', probably the most famous Couperin's harpsichord pieces. Indeed this fame is justified, but in fact all the suite is among the best music we have in the French harpsichord XVIIIth century!
    These tunes can also be played on the piano, but the ornaments are brighter on the harpsichord. Matter of taste... Thank you for listening and commenting !
