 Update me on new releases by Chambonnieres

Jacques Champion Chambonnieres (01/01/1601 - 5/04/1672)

Chambonnières may be regarded as the founder of the school of French keyboard music that led to François Couperin and Rameau. A member of the minor nobility, he entered the royal service and enjoyed a career of varied material success, while nevertheless winning a considerable reputation as a performer and composer. At the least he exercised a strong influence over the father and two uncles of François Couperin le grand, Charles, Louis and François.

Keyboard Music

The keyboard music of Chambonnières includes dances, a collection of which was published in 1670, assembled into suites by key, although not originally so conceived.
