Central Square Records

Francois Couperin, one of the most significant and important composers of French Baroque music, composed fourteen concertos between 1714 and 1724, known as "Concerts Royaux" and "Les Goûts-reunis, ou Nouveaux Concerts." The fantastic oboist Emanuel Abbuhl has selected five of these for his new GENUIN CD. For his album, he takes advantage of the composer's decision to allow performers the freedom to choose whether the main voice should be played with harpsichord, oboe, violin, flute, or bassoon. Abbuhl collaborates with fellow musicians David Tomas, Carla Sanfelix (Baroque cello), Miklos Spanyi, and Benoit Fallai (theorbo), combining modern and historical instruments with the utmost respect for style, colors, and tempi: truly ear-opening!
