Like the Bach family, the Couperins were a musical dynasty. Louis - the uncle of François 'le Grand' had established himself as organist of St Gervais by the mid-1650s and entering royal service shortly after as 'chamber musician' on the treble viol. He went on to become one of the most original and individual keyboard composers in France. Despite a short carrier - he died early in 1661 at the age of just thirty-five - he left more than 120 harpsichord pieces and 70 works for organ - most of them discovered in the 60's - which highlight his refined genius of colour and counterpoint.
