Complete Works of Louis Couperin
↑ Subtitles in English
Since Jean Rondeau’s debut album almost a decade ago, he’s tried to take his listeners on a vast journey: all the way from the beginnings of harpsichord music in the 16th century to the very limits of what harpsichord can be in the 20th century. Along the way, he’s highlighted the infinities of Bach, the virtuosity of Scarlatti, the sublime grace of Bull and Byrd, and everything and everywhere in between and beyond.
With his tenth album with Erato (Warner Classics), Jean will be recording the complete works of Louis Couperin: nearly ten hours of music on seven discs, recorded on multiple instruments (including some of the preeminent antique organs and harpsichords in Europe) in several countries, altogether the product of years of work and intense musicological research. The release of the album in late 2025 will celebrate Couperin’s 400th birthday (1626–2026).
Through Kickstarter, Jean is offering the unique opportunity to own a piece of his career-defining project. Starting in November, music lovers will have the chance to back his crowdfunding campaign.
