About

For the second volume in his Couperin series, keyboard virtuoso Bertrand Cuiller paints a portrait of a young Couperin who, at the age of only seventeen, was appointed organist of Saint-Gervais in Paris – a prestigious position to attain at any age. It was also a position that soon translated into his appointment as organist of the king and harpsichord master of the royal children. Couperin’s compositions from this period are marked by a surprising maturity of writing. Bertrand Cuiller’s eloquent performances reveal all the diversity and color present in these works.
