€18,99 (incl. VAT)

Harpsichord friends had to wait a long time for this fourth SACD and the conclusion of the complete harpsichord works of Louis Couperin. On the fantastic original “Velen” Ruckers harpsichord, recorded in a church on the Lower Rhine, Bob van Aspern shows with his inimitably flexible and colorful playing why this repertoire is so loved by connoisseurs.

The musical proximity to Johann Jacob Froberger and the Parisian colleagues is not only to be heard, but also described and elucidated by Bob van Asperen in the as always comprehensive booklet – even several works by Parisian “guest composers” are included as in the previous volumes: e.g. here a pavanne of Jacques Champion de Chambonnières can be heard as last movement of the suite in g minor.

Found on the SACD layer are high-resolution recordings in stereo and in 5.0 surround sound.

A fifth organ volume is still in preparation.
