By Dorota Cybulska-Amsler. By Armand-Louis Couperin, Francois Couperin, and Louis Couperin. Classical. CD. Dux Records #DUX1547. Published by Dux Records (NX.DUX1547).

Nowadays, the work of Francois Couperin is commonly associated with harpsichord music of the turn of the Baroque and Classicism. His elaborate miniatures and suites, plenty of brilliant ornaments, are now almost inextricably linked to the canonical harpsichord repertoire. The album by Dorota Cybulska-Amsler makes us aware, however, that Francois was not the only composer in the Couperin family. As the artist points out, names of members of the Couperin family, originating from the Chaumes-en-Brie region, are already in documents from the 16th century. In 1586, Mathurin Couperin (ca. 1569-ca. 1640), is still making a living mainly from farming, but he obtains the right to practice music for remuneration. His son, Charles I (1595-1654) is going to be the founder of a musical dynasty.
