François Couperin (1668 - 1733) worked at the court of Louis XIV in Versailles at a time when musicians fervently disputed the question whether the brilliant ornate Italian style or the "natural" French style should be preferred. The fact that Couperin tried to combine both styles, e. g. in his „Concerts Royaux“, proves his musical superiority. The score, i.e. the harpsichord part, contains the b. c., the separate note sheets contain the main tune or violoncello part incl. figured bass line for the experienced continuo player.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
