Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This series, including the music of Louis Couperin, André Raison, Jacques Boyvin, François Couperin, Nicolas de Grigny, and more, is the fruit of many years of research by a seasoned performer whose aim is to combine technical brilliance with intellectual understanding, to bring the music alive with authority and meaning.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
This is, or would have been a fine period instrument, its remarkable history described in some detail. Alas this is an all too familiar tale of neglect and alteration over the years, but the instrument has recently been rebuilt... I particularly like the throaty pedal tones and breadth of contrast to be heard in this recording, and while the stereo spread isn't particularly wide the human scale of the music is superbly voiced.
