On the 350 anniversary of the birth of François Couperin (1668-1733)
Duration: 60mins (without interval)

Forma Antiqva reflects on the 350th anniversary of François Couperin, one of the great French composers of the 18th century. They perform his Leçons de Ténèbres, a sublime work which summarises the Baroque spirituality of France under the Sun King. The vision of Aarón Zapico, director of the Ensemble, offers a fresh and revised perspective of this piece which comprises historic rigor of the score together with the beauty and musicality of Couperin’s work.
