The Couperin Dynasty

Alberto Busettini
Performer(s): 

Alberto Busettini, Harpsichord

Aberfoyle Place NW, Washington DC 20015
Program Details: 

Italian keyboard artist Alberto Busettini presents this sumptuous, definitively French, Program of works by three generations of the famed Couperin family.  The glorious works of Louis Couperin, François Couperin ('the Great'), and Armand-Louis Couperin reveal the evolving style of the French Baroque, from the stylized Dance Suite form of the Early/Mid Baroque, to the more song-like, mood-invoking melodies of the Late Baroque & Rococo, to the hallmark expressiveness and lightness of the early Classical period.
