Notes & Reviews:

After the success of a CD devoted to the sonatas of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Florence Malgoire's ensemble Les Dominos explores the first French sonatas. All of these works date from the 1680s, when the French had just discovered the Italian sonata style and had begun to use it, albeit in some secrecy. This recording contains the complete sonatas of François Couperin, four of which are the original versions of sonatas that Couperin would later make use of in Les Nations. It is the first recording to present the sonatas in their entirety, in particular because the sonata "La Convalescente" appears on record for the very first time. The sonata was discovered only recently in a manuscript copy in Germany.
