François Couperin And The French Classical Tradition

£16.99

Product description

This is the classic, definitive study of the life and works of the great French composer, Couperin le Grand, in a wholly revised and rewritten version. At least one third of the book, which first appeared in 1950 and is long since out of print, is completely new.

The book looks at both his body of music as well as his technical experiments with instruments, but has an appear far beyond music. It looks at the cultural life in France at the time of Louis XIV, the Sun King. The interrelationship of society life, literature, painting, architecture and music in the grand siecle is here described as never before.

Hardback book and dust jacket in very good condition. Some foxing to the top of the pages, but the text is clean and the spine is tight.
