It is 33 from The portrait gallery series. We used to make the various harpsichord volumes of this Le Pupitre series available. One problem facing the modern interpreter is deciphering his ornamentation and markings and making them work. It takes a long time tox absorb it naturally into the interpretation of a piece, let alone to memorise it.
Others, such as Les Moissonneurs The Reapers hark back to his rustic origins. So what score can you reliably play from? Orders, orders This score shares the neat appearance of the antique Augener edition, but has the advantage of later scholarship and greater accuracy. After all, people play Handel and Scarlatti on the piano, but rarely Couperin and Rameau.
The clavichord was not terribly coupdrin in France. Many are musical portraits of friends, court acquaintances or the King himself. I have found internet chatrooms discussing the various possibilities of the last: Coupfrin vs historic harpsichord First go at the historic harpsichord First go at the modern harpsichord Harpsichord editions Music Books. Edited by Brahms and Chrysander, this scan was made from the Augener edition, first published aboutand frequently reprinted.
The composer kindly refers us to the preface of his third volume of harpsichord pieces for instructions on how to play the piece. Couperin often found that it did not, and became irritated by poor performances of his music. Couperin left no clues and asked to be forgiven for not explaining. His reasoning was logical: Those who have a Harpsichord with only one Manual, or a spinet, will play the upper part as written, and the Bass an octave lower; when the Bass cannot be taken an octave lower, then the upper part will have to be moved up an octave.
The manager of my record company, the late Ted Perry, suggested I look at his music. Pieces of this kind, moreover, are suitable for two flutes or oboes, as well as for two Violins, two Viols and other instruments of equal pitch, it being understood that those who play them will adapt them to their own range. A succession of Couperins held the post of organist at the church of Saint-Gervais in Paris for years They are frequently found on the shelves of musicians, despite their expense, and until a few years ago when coupedin from facsimile became vogue, this quite fine edition was the only way many composers were available.
One of the best may well be one of the first: In that domain, it made its largest contribution to the history of 17th-century music, and had a huge influence on other composers, including Bach. Some were obviously pure harpsichord material; others were written for two players at once. The music is crisp and clear, almost sparse in appearance on the page without the expressive goop and fingerings of the other versions.
Playing his music means immersing oneself in a large cast of characters and trying to find the secret to each one. I declare that in my pieces they ought to be played as I have marked l, and that they will never make a certain impression on persons of true taste, unless they have tc to the letter everything that I have marked, without adding or subtracting anything.
My next example was copyrighted inand is from Kalmus study scoreFrench Composers for the Clavichord. Born in Paris inCouperin was a member of a musical dynasty, unique ti France and only surpassed in the history of music by the Bach family. To fully understand his music, we have to relate it to the manners and habits of the reign of the Chocc King, and most importantly to the dance.
Couperin is a composer whose work pianists and music-lovers should know and understand, not just for its importance in the history of keyboard music, but for sheer pleasure and delight. While it is unashamedly pianistic, here is a version by a man that has obviously looked something close to the original source, and preserved as much of the architecture of the music as he could. Fluency and grace in movement, gesture and deportment were part of a general education, especially for the nobility.
Fingerings are kindly provided in the usual manner as though we are not capable or intelligent enough practices to decide our own, and there is the usual expressive goop that pianists seem to have trouble living without.
Ornamentation is the very essence of his music. I was coming to the end of tiv complete JS Bach cycle on disc played on the pianoso why not look at the French harpsichordists of the period? My parents, my first teachers, no doubt told me something about him: This scan was made from the facsimile edition published by Anne Fuzeau Productionsand as it is a direct photographic rendition, it obviously reproduces the elegant engraving of the original edition which was supervized by Couperin himself.
This is an unpardonable negligence, the more so since it is not at all an arbitrary matter to put in what ornaments one wishes. Instead, we must cross the Channel. Indeed, it is said that Louis XIV practised the courante for several hours a day in his youth. Sentiment rules over thematic discourse. It was 30 years later that I encountered Couperin seriously again. For many modern musicians, we can safely return to the French, and use the Heugel Le Pupitre series, the four Couperin volumes edited in the early s by Kenneth Gilbert.
