François Couperin: lumière et ombre

Les Talens Lyriques

A picture of a Christophe Rousset

A half-day exploration of the music of François Couperin, ‘le grand’, celebrating the 350th anniversary of his birth and culminating in the Trois Leçons de ténèbres by candlelight.

The music of Francois Couperin is like nothing else – a fusion of wit, imagination and grace that can feel startlingly contemporary. And in the hands of Les Talens Lyriques: some of his most expert – and affectionate – living interpreters, this three-part celebration will be just so.
