Description: The father of the French harpsichord school, Chambonnières counted many composers as his pupils: the Couperin family, D’Angelbert, Froberger and many others. These suites follow the traditional structure of collections of dance movements, brilliantly written in elaborate style, making full use of the possibilities of the then newly invented two-manual harpsichord. 2 CDs.
