The Couperin Dynasty: 1626-1789

Margaret Irwin-Brandon, harpsichord

Desert Baroque presents “The Couperin Dynasty,” a program of Baroque harpsichord music by three generations of France’s immortal composers - Louis, Francois, and Armand-Louis Couperin. Equal in stature to the Bach family, who for generations were Germany’s undisputed musical dynasty, the Couperins held the most prestigious posts in the high culture of France, especially under Louis XIV.
