5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Couperin 17 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a very fine and hugely enjoyable disc of some of Couperin's loveliest chamber music. It includes the Première and Deuxième Suites for viola da gamba and continuo, and three pieces for chamber ensemble: La Sultane, Le Dodo and La Superbe. All are great pieces, and all are beautifully played.

The chamber works feature Skip Sempé's ensemble Capriccio Stravagante who made a series of terrific recordings for DHM, of which this from 1996 is one. Sempé is a fine musician and a very experienced master of this repertoire, and he brings a performance of real authority from his ensemble. Jay Barnfeld is a really good gamba player and his performance stands up very well beside, for example, the great Wieland Kuijken's. The sound of his instrument is beautiful and the recording is excellent. All in all a really top-quality disc which is warmly recommended.

You may like to know that this disc is included in a magnificent, mega-bargain 50-CD box commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the label DHM. Deutsche Harmonia Mundi 50th Anniversary Box If you can run to a few extra quid you get this very fine disc and 49 others, too!
