Product Description

Amazon.ca

Peut-on imaginer un titre plus explicite ? Les Goûts réunis furent publiés en 1724. François Couperin voulait ainsi composer une œuvre qui réalise la synthèse entre les styles français et italiens. À la tête de sa formation, les Talents Lyriques, il dirige l'un des sommets de la musique de la Régence. Dans cette musique si difficile à interpréter, il lui faut inventer toutes les ornementations ainsi que l'instrumentation. Tout est affaire de goût ! Commet retrouver les indications lorsqu'il n'existe aucun manuscrit ? Ce travail de musicologue et d'expert dans ce répertoire français, Christophe Rousset le réussit merveilleusement. On y découvre également la solitude du compositeur, car au-delà des notes, c'est bien la chronique d'une cour qui s'achève. Couperin ne sera jamais imité, du moins dans cette qualité d'écriture qui ne cherche qu'à émouvoir le public par son raffinement de timbres. --Étienne Bertoli

Couperin wrote these pieces to please the aging (and ailing) Louis XIV, as he pined away in Versailles toward the end of his long reign. They are sweet, quiet, but extremely well crafted chamber pieces making effective use of both strings and winds. If you have heard Couperin's "Concerts Royaux", you will find yourself in familiar territory, since these logically follow on after the concerts.
Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques are, in my mind, the premiere French Baroque chamber group operating today. Their tone is ideally suited to these works, and execution is flawless.
My one complaint is price. This is fabulous music-making, but at full price for two discs. I don't think its as competitive as it could be, particularly with most labels dipping into their vaults and re releasing classic baroque recordings from the past 25 years as twofers at mid- or bargain prices. And, then of course, there's Naxos. So while this is "state of the art" in terms of authentic baroque playing, you do pay a lot for it.
