The Perfection of Music: François Couperin at Home, at Court, in Church

July 22 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£8 – £01865

Event Navigation

This concert is part of the Instruments of Time & Truth Summer Concert Series 2021.

François Couperin was one of the foremost musicians in the Royal Court of France at the turn of the 18th Century, and the centre of gravity of a talented musical family. Equally comfortable at court, at church, or simply making music at home, this performance takes in the breadth of the Couperins’ musical output and imagines an intimate performance to showcase the versatility of the entire family’s skills. IT&T performs the music of this musical chameleon under the expert direction of French Baroque expert, Edward Higginbottom.

La Pucelle

Pièces de clavecin

Premier leçon de ténèbres
