Francois Couperin was one of the finest French Baroque composers and keyboardists. In fact, he was known as "Couperin the Great" to distinguish him from the rest of his talented Couperin family. This release features some of Couperin's finest works, including Huitieme Concert "Dans le gout Theatral," and "Les Ondes." All works on this recording are performed on period instruments by the acclaimed Aulos Ensemble.
