Jacques Duphly: Pieces for Harpsichord / Christophe Rousset, harpsichord

Notes & Reviews:

French Baroque composer Jacques Duphly was born the year of the death of Louis XIV and died the year of the storming of the Bastille. His entire output consists of four books of harpsichord pieces. Duphly was not an innovator; he revolutionized neither style nor technique. As a result, he is regarded by some as a minor composer. Yet he composed splendidly for the harpsichord, exploring all its registers. Duphly's primary influences were François Couperin and Jean-Phillipe Rameau, whose musical style dominated France in the first half of the 18th century. Through this recording, Christophe Rousset demonstrates the virility of Duphly's compositions.
