4.0 out of 5 stars A QUALITY JOB BY BAUMONT, 29 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Couperin: Complete works for Harpsichord (Audio CD)
Olivier Baumont's 1991/1994 recording of Couperin's complete harpsichord works are in many way's exemplary.He pretty much lets the music speak for itself and together with Michael Borgstede's complete recording on Brilliant Classics represent the best available versions of this towering music.(I prefer both over Rousset's recording)

The only slight drawback here is the recorded sound is very dry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unhesitating recommendation for these superb readings of Couperin, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Couperin: Complete works for Harpsichord (Audio CD)
Superb readings of these great works, interestingly, played on a selection of four different harpsichords. I don't find the recording quality at all 'dry' like the previous reviewer, so might not be a good idea to let that put you off if you fancy purchasing Beaumont's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest oeuvre ever composed for the harpsichord, 30 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Couperin: Complete works for Harpsichord (Audio CD)
The greatest oeuvre ever composed for the harpsichord, played in a manner that "Couperin le Grand" would, I'm sure, have wholeheartedly approved of. A box set that proves just how misguided it is, to play this wonderful music on a piano.
