Review by JJ November 3, 2013 (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
A reissue on SACD of a recording made in 1975, these “Pièces de Violes” from 1728 are made up of two Suites following the figured bass by the French composer. “This reissue,” states Jordi Savall, “is a double tribute to all those who were inspired by the ‘love of the viol’: first of all, to the great artistry of François Couperin, and also to all those who have contributed throughout my life to making this journey, inspired by this same love, possible, guarding during this long route a special memory full of thanks to these two great personalities and friends, Geneviève Thibault, Comptesse de Chambure, and Michel Bernstein, both of whom were great pioneers in the ‘Défense et illustration de la musique française,’ which embraced Couperin’s motto (“I like far more that which touches me than that which surprises me.”) Well, it is with renewed pleasure, along with much emotion, that we rediscover this music under the fingers of exemplary artists, in a sound recording no less so.
