FRANCOIS COUPERIN - Suites for Viola da gamba - Mikko Perkola (Viola da gamba) - Aapo Häkkinen (Harpsichord) - 747313094479 - Released: January 2013 - Naxos 8.570944

Music for the reflective times, well worked out in it's performance and delivery. That is what this disc contains. Music written for the French court at a time when the French style was prominent in Europe.

Mikko Perkola and Aapo Häkkinen are well seasoned musicians that understand the works, and add colour and light to the subtle nuances François Couperin has written for us. Perfect music for quiet reflection.
