Blandine Verlet is now one of the last living legends of the harpsichord. After a few years of absence, she has joined the label Aparté with a programme dedicated to Francois Couperin's harpsichord music, recorded on a sumptuous Hemsch of 1751 upon which she already performed Goldberg Variations in 1993. Throughout these pieces with evocative titles (Les Amusements, the Raphaèle, the delights, the Poppies, the Wandering Shadows ..) she reveals an artist with a voice more than inspired, powerful and constantly renewed.

Time passes and the harpsichordist Blandine Verlet’s witty imagination doesn’t fade. Regularly rewarded for her legendary records, she releases for the second time pieces of her beloved Couperin: the 13th and 18th so called “ordres” of the Third Book. Known for her unique interpretations, Blandine Verlet’s tempi are sometimes voluntarily slower than prescribed but they are never heavy because she is animated by a strong and lively breath. At the harpsichord, she is carried by her writer’s delicate sensitivity.

”The method that I present here is a kind of restitution to the public, having profited as much as possible from the compliments they have so kindly given me concerning my art. I have added my little discoveries to this and thus I will feel that I have done enough in discharging my duty to them. Perhaps a few people will say that I work against my own best interests in these disclosures of my studies, but I will renounce them forever, without any reservations at all, whenever it is a matter of usefulness to others.” (Francois Couperin, L’Art de Toucher le Clavecin)

Each appearance of Atsushi Sakai and Christophe Rousset leaves an unforgettable memory with those who have had the good fortune to hear them commune on stage. Long-standing partners, they now join together for the first time on disc for a composer they worship: the mysterious Antoine Forqueray. Born in 1672 in Paris, he was, with Marin Marais, one of the greatest gambists of all time. Famed for his virtuosic improvisations, he published none of his 300-odd pieces and died in 1745 in Mantes where he had moved in 1731, after having suffered serious financial setbacks, especially in the course of Law’s bankruptcy. Aside from a few handwritten pieces copied in the collections of other composers, Forqueray’s pieces have been lost.

Louis-Claude Daquin (July 4, 1694 – June 15, 1772) was a French composer of Jewish ancestry, writing in the Baroque and Galant styles. He was a virtuoso organist and harpsichordist. Louis-Claude Daquin was born in Paris to a family originating from Italy, where his great-great-grandfather took the name D'Aquino after converting to Catholicism in the town of Aquino. Louis-Claude's parents were Claude Daquin, a painter, and Anne Tiersant, a grand-niece of Rabelais. One of Louis-Claude's grand-uncles was a professor of Hebrew at the Collège de France, and another was the principal physician of King Louis XIV.
