Couperin: a contemporary of ours
on 12 February 2010
This is definitely not Couperin with a charmingly quaint antique air; Tharaud's approach is direct and immediate, and if it sounds 'modern', apart from the fact that it is played on the piano without attempting to imitate the sharp, dry sound of the harpsichord,it must surely be because Tharaud approaches it with his own intelligence and sensibility, and, it seems, without preconceptions. As with the superb Bach Italian concerto disc, the notes weave seamlessly into sustained discourse.
