François Couperin wrote some of France’s greatest music in the classical style. The Suites for Viola da gamba and Harpsichord are late works, published in 1728, and are perfect examples of his richly expressive style which here draws upon Italian models as well as, perhaps, celebrating another genius of the French school, Marin Marais, who had died in the year the Suites were published. Intense and passionate, the suites offer lyricism and virtuosity, Italian bravura and French richness. The last of Couperin’s harpsichord ordres (or suites) consists of four varied pieces, including Les Chinois, an early example of interest in China in Western music.

Review By Julie Anne Sadie,Gramophone,April 2013

Mikko Perkola…and the harpsichordist Aapo Häkkinen offer a beautifully paced alternative, resonant and reflective. They create a wonderful sense of intimacy in the Sarabande of the First Suite, Perkola artfully closing it with a gently strummed chord; the ‘Pompe funèbre’ in the A major Second Suite is beautifully thought through. Häkkinen contributes a delightfully expressive performance of Couperin’s 27th Ordre to round off the CD. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
