Catalogue Number: 05M020
Reference: CRC 3084/3085
Description: These harpsichord pieces are set apart from the usual French style by a very un-Gallic interest in counterpoint (two of the suites begin with fugues - possibly the only ones in all French baroque keyboard music) and by more than usual use of expressive dissonance. The suites date from 1734 and c.1735 and are Fevrier's only works for harpsichord. 2 CDs.
