Olivier Baumont, Béatrice Martin, Claire Antonini, Julien Cigana

Recorded on the historic harpsichords at the Château de Versailles by Olivier Baumont and Béatrice Martin for the 350th anniversary of François Couperin’s birth, this album bridges the music of France and Italy through the composer’s two famous Apotheoses, created in homage to the enormous talents of Lully and Corelli.

An allegory of different tastes brought together, this is Couperin’s vision of an artistic reunion between these two genius composers, his call for World Peace.
