Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It is often in a composer's later years such as Beethoven's that one can find the summation of the man and his passionate pursuits into further unexplored musical domains. Couperin was such a composer and this piece is one of his treasures which he composed in the contemplation of a retired life reflecting on the heritage left to him by Lully, Marais, and his other influences for the viola. Couperin returning to the viola in his older age ironcially parallels the life of the instrument he used as the viola too was nearing its end and being abandoned for the cello. More reserved and methodical than the freely emotive styles of his predecessors such as Marais, Couperin's viola suites are most charming in their executions. The last movement 'La Chemise Blanche' is probably the nicest of all the pieces in conveying the reflective mood of the work. What is even more charming is Jordi Savall performing them as he is the foremost virtuoso of the viola da gamba and an accomplished conductor for French Baroque pieces. The performance and recording quality of this CD is fantastic. This is a great purchase for anyone who wishes to expand their horizons into French Baroque or music for viola da gamba. You really can't go wrong with your purchase here as virtually no other performer rises much higher than average in comparison to Savall's unique and passionate style for the viola.

The music itself is an expression of Couperin the mystic, and Savall et al. meet its challenges with both fire and refinement.
