GASPARD LE ROUX (c.1660-1707): 41 Pièces de Clavecin.
Catalogue Number: 03K019
Label: Pierre Verany
Description: Uniquely in this genre, Le Roux not only also presented nearly every one of these pieces in a version for string or wind trio but also, in six of them, he wrote out versions for two harpsichords, demonstrating how one could do this for all 41 - as is done here. The music itself is a summation of 17th century French keyboard techniques and styles; Couperin and Rameau would soon render them rather obsolete.
