9.30am Building a Library: Jeremy Summerly surveys recordings of Stravinsky's Mass

Stravinsky's Mass was written between 1944 and 1948 and is one of the most austere and archaic works of his neoclassical period. Stravinsky incorporated elements of his Russian Orthodox faith but chose to set the text of the Catholic Mass out of a desire to create a liturgical work - an impossibility in the Russian Orthodox tradition, which forbids the use of instruments in church. The Mass is one of only a few of Stravinsky's works not have been commissioned, which suggests that the work came about as a result of the composer's own renewed religious consciousness.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (m00010gt)
Dangerous Futures, Dangerous Dances

The Latvian violinist Baiba Skride talks to Tom about her career since winning the 2001 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, including her passion for Scandinavian repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Schools Minister Nick Gibb and Chief Executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians Deborah Annetts speak to Tom about the current state of music education in primary and secondary schools.

Tom also talks to François Dru, the editor of a new, unpublished score of Ravel's Bolero, taken from the 1928 ballet premiere in Paris, with the original instrumentation for the percussion section.

And in Hidden Voices: Guillermo Uribe Holguín, the Colombian composer and reluctant impressionist, inspired in the popular culture of his land, but also violinist, teacher and founder of the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia, in the early 20th-Century.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m00010gw)
Violinist Francesca Dego finds Italian flavour wherever she listens

Violinist Francesca Dego admires the cool dexterity of her teacher Salvatore Accardo, can’t resist the combination of Brahms and the cello, and tries to work out how harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani gets around the fact he can’t play dynamics.

Francesca also treats us to her world premiere recording of a piece by a composer she loves, fellow Italian Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

At 2 o’clock Francesca’s Must Listen piece is a glorious operatic duet, where every phrase is given a special, emotion-wrenching musical treatment.

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.

SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (m00010h2)
Wagner's Die Walküre, as part of The Ring of the Nibelung, from the ROH

Wagner's opera Die Walküre, the second opera in the The Ring of the Nibelung cycle, recorded last month at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Time has passed since the gods moved to the their new home Vallhalla, and their leader Wotan is still in search of the gold that will grant him unlimited power. He wants to use the twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, born to him out of wedlock, to retrieve it. But Fricka, as guardian of marriage, insists that Siegmund pays for his husband transgressions and wants him killed. Wotan reluctantly agrees and forces the Valkyrie Brunnhilde, his warrior daughter, also raised out of wedlock, not to protect Siegmund in a fight. But the walkyrie falls in love with Siegmund and disobeys Wotan, and as a result she is stripped of her divinity and left on a fire-encircled rock. Brunnhilde’s efforts are useless as Siegmund pays with his life in this doomed saga that moves from the realm of the gods to the human sphere.

Sir Antonio Pappano conducts a cast with Stuart Skelton as Siegmund, Nina Stemme as Brünnhilde, John Lundgren as Wotan and Sarah Connolly as Fricka.

SYNOPSIS
Wotan has been prey to anxiety ever since he stole the ring from Alberich and used it to pay the giants rather than returning it to the Rhinedaughters. Desperate to protect himself should Alberich regain the ring, he has sought out Erda, who bore him the warrior-maiden Brünnhilde. Wotan, in the meantime, has also fathered Siegmund and Sieglinde, the Wälsung twins, with a mortal woman. With Siegmund, Wotan hopes to create a free being who will recover the ring, for he fears the curse Alberich placed on him when he violated his own rule of law.
Act I
A storm is raging. A man takes shelter. Sieglinde offers him first water, then mead, which he asks her to share. Hunding returns and offers the stranger grudging hospitality. He notices a resemblance between his wife and the stranger. The stranger tells his tale. Plagued by misfortune, the fugitive recalls the sword his father once promised he would find in his hour of greatest need. Sieglinde returns, having drugged Hunding. She recounts how, at her enforced wedding to Hunding, a stranger appeared and thrust a sword into the tree trunk. No one has been able to pull it out. She is convinced he is her twin; she names him Siegmund and urges him to remove the sword from the tree. He draws it out and claims Sieglinde as both bride and sister.

Act II
Wotan instructs Brünnhilde, his favourite Valkyrie daughter, to ensure that Siegmund wins the fight with Hunding. Fricka demands to know how Wotan can both sanction incest and uphold the supremacy of the gods so Wotan tells Brünnhilde that she must not protect Siegmund and threatens the direst consequences if she disobeys.
Brünnhilde appears to Siegmund and announces that he will die in battle and join the other heroes in Valhalla. There he will meet his father. When Siegmund learns that he cannot take Sieglinde he refuses the afterlife. He threatens to kill both Sieglinde and their unborn child, announced by the Valkyrie, rather than be separated from her. Moved by compassion, Brünnhilde promises to safeguard Siegmund. Hunding’s horn is heard. Brünnhilde tries to protect Siegmund but Wotan shatters Siegmund’s sword with his spear. Siegmund is struck dead. Brünnhilde gathers the pieces of broken sword and flees with Sieglinde.

Act III
The Valkyries gather dead warriors for Valhalla. Brünnhilde arrives and the Valkyries are shocked to see that she is accompanied by a mortal woman. Sieglinde wants to die, but when Brünnhilde tells her that she is carrying Siegmund’s son, who will be the noblest hero in the world, she begs protection. Wotan arrives and the Valkyries try to hide Brünnhilde from his wrath, he denounces her disobedience and banishes her from Valhalla. She will be left to sleep until a mortal man wakes her and she will be turned into a ‘domestic’ wife. Wotan remains unforgiving, even when she tells him that a Wälsung hero will be born to Sieglinde. Finally, Brünnhilde asks to be surrounded by fire so that only an outstanding hero will find her. Wotan agrees to this solution and bids her farewell. He calls on Loge, the fire god, to encircle her with flames.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m00010kk)
Anil Seth

It’s the size and shape of a cauliflower, and weighs about 3 lbs. And yet the average human brain has so many intricate and complex connections that if you counted one connection every second it would take you more than three million years.

Professor Anil Seth has devoted his career to trying to understand the brain, puzzling over the mystery of consciousness itself. He’s Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the Sackler Centre at the University of Sussex, and the author of a popular book, “The 30-second Brain”. In Private Passions, he muses on how our consciousness of the world, and of ourselves, is “one of the big central mysteries of life”. And it’s a mystery we face every day – when we fall asleep and when we wake up. In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Anil Seth explores the concept of free will (he doesn’t believe in it); why music evokes such strong memories; and how meditation changes the structure of the brain.

Music choices include Chopin, Bach, Nina Simone, and an ancient Hindi mantra.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08qtdts)
What's the Point of the Conductor?

The Listening Service had a question from a listener :

"When I see the musicians playing, they seem to be looking at their sheet music, not the conductor. Can an orchestra not function perfectly well without a conductor? If I'm intensely moved by a piece of orchestral music, is it not the musicians which moved me? Why must I applaud some arbitrary conductor, who never touched a single instrument throughout the entire performance?"

Tom Service rises to the challenge and looks at the role of the conductor - is it all about their ego, their clothes, their ability to beat time or their emotional outpouring onstage - or it is something else entirely? Rethink music with The Listening Service.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b07pdz6c)
Monkey Business

It begins in mischief and ends in confusion. Monkeys are the lords of misrule. They're as entertaining as they are mischievous. In their needs and affections they can also seem almost human. Are we monkeys or are they men? In Monkey Business the actors Rosalie Craig and Philip Franks will be leaping about between the probable and the improbable. Searching for airborne fun rather than earthbound enlightenment. They'll be swinging from the cosmology of 16th-century China to the simian aspirations of The Jungle Book and will conjure mayhem from Satie, Beethoven, Britten and Ligeti to hasten them on the way. As Kipling put it - "here we go in a flung festoon, half-way up to the jealous moon."

Is it wrong to have children? Shakespeare and terrorism

Sean Williams introduces tonight’s Sunday Feature that offers twin presentations by two of this year’s crop of Radio 3’s New Generation Thinkers.

Is it wrong to have children?
I really love my children but are they the biggest moral mistake I ever made? This is the question posed by moral philosopher Dr Simon Beard. In this Sunday Feature, Simon sets out to explore the moral ramifications of his decision to have two children.

Meeting academics, campaigners and ordinary parents, Simon asks whether having a child is ever the right or wrong thing to do. And, in a world of overpopulation and climate change, do we need to change the way we think about family life?

Simon Beard is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge's Centre for the Study of Existential Risk

Producer: Georgia Catt

Do terrorists have a problem with Shakespeare?
Terrorists across the globe have cited Shakespeare as a motivation for their actions, but why do some extremists hate the Bard – and why are others inspired by him?
From Osama bin Laden, whose diaries revealed he visited – and hated – Shakespeare’s birthplace, to Guy Fawkes who held links to Shakespeare and his family, the world’s most famous playwright has been a strange fascination for terrorists over the centuries.
What is it that draws audiences to Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays, in the same way that staged beheadings of Isis draw millions of views on YouTube? And what has led terrorists to attack theatres and actors, like the bombing of a 2005 Qatari performance of Twelfth Night?

Dr Islam Issa begins by attempting to understand the mindset of a terrorist, talking to criminologist Imran Awan. They also explore the human attraction to violent displays in such productions as Titus Andronicus:
…..five times he hath return'd
Bleeding to Rome, bearing his valiant sons
In coffins from the field;
And now at last, laden with horror's spoils,
Returns the good Andronicus to Rome,
Renowned Titus, flourishing in arms.

The show also investigates why Nazi extremists were drawn to Shakespeare’s most iconic characters, as well as Shakespeare’s ominous presence in the Abraham Lincoln assassination.

Dr Issa also visits Stratford-Upon-Avon, meeting Paul Edmondson to discuss how Shakespeare lived through the threat of the UK’s biggest ever terror plot – The Gunpowder Plot.

Shakespeare would have been familiar with the conspirators, and had the plot been carried out, it would have been more devastating than even the 7/7 bombers intended: “Thirty-thousand persons would have perished at a stroke … a spectacle so terrible and terrifying”.

With insight from the critic Ewan Fernie, Dr Issa also investigates why Nazi extremists were drawn to Shakespeare’s most iconic characters, as well as Shakespeare’s ominous presence in the Abraham Lincoln assassination.

Couperin the portraitist

Donald Macleod surveys musical portraits of aristocracy and musicians by Francois Couperin

Donald Macleod marks 350 years since the birth of Francois Couperin, one of France’s most dazzling musical talents. His illustrious rise to fame began with his appointment as organist at St Gervais in Paris while he was still a teenager, and he went on to serve as a composer and harpsichordist at court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Known to his contemporaries as ‘Couperin Le Grand’, he is recognised today as the most important French composer of his generation.

Francois Couperin composed a number of musical depictions of his contemporaries and aristocratic patrons. He taught keyboard at the Versailles palace to the Dauphin and six Princes of the Blood. Among his musical portraits of royalty and aristocracy include harpsichord works depicting Madame de Bourbon, and also the Spanish Princess who for a time was the fiancée of Louis XV.

Couperin also created musical portraits of another nature. Not only did he depict in music the composers Arcangelo Corelli, Jean-Baptiste Lully, and also one of himself, but also composed depictions of the Holy Queen, Mary, and the mythological characters of Ariadne and Bacchus.

BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales
Adrian Partington (conductor)

To commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War, the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales present a concert of music for the fallen souls from the war, concluding with the premiere of Stanford's Mass Via Victrix (1914-1918), 99 years after its composition. The Orchestra begins by commemorating a little-known composer who fell in the war, Ernest Farrar, with his orchestral Rhapsody The Open Road, written in 1909 and loosely based on Walt Whitman's poem Song for the Open Road. Frederick Septimus Kelly’s Elegy for strings, in memoriam Rupert Brooke was written while the composer was recuperating from the Battle of Gallipoli and is dedicated to the poet Rupert Brooke, whose midnight burial on the Isle of Skyros is one of the more well-known episodes from the early part of the war. Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin completes the concert's first part, a piece whose movements are each dedicated to a different friend who died fighting in the war.

Stanford's Mass Via Victrix (1914-1918) encapsulates both a sense of relief and celebration for the allied victory, but also a deep sense of mourning for the tragic loss of those who fell. Although it was completed in December 1919 the work has never been performed in full, and the full manuscript score has been painstakingly transcribed into performing parts by Stanford scholar Jeremy Dibble. During the interval Jeremy will talk about the challenges involved in that undertaking.

Minds at War: Series 5
Episode 1

The final run of Essays in the long-running series which explores the impact of the First World War on individual artists through the prism of a single great work of art.

1.Imaobong Umoren tells the story behind W.E.B. Dubois' seminal editorial, Returning Soldiers, which laid the early foundations of the Black Lives Matter campaign.

Born in 1868 in Massachusetts, Du Bois was raised by a single mother who descended from African, English and Dutch ancestors. Growing up in the racially mixed town of Great Barrington, Du Bois attended public school alongside both white and black pupils and, at an early age, was singled out for his intellect. He was to grow up to become one of the leading scholars and activists of the twentieth century on what was then termed the ‘Negro Problem’.

Published in The Crisis, the magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Returning Soldiers’, was based on the experiences that Du Bois had during his three-month visit to France from December 1918 to March 1919.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0001174)
Francois Couperin (1688-1733)
The Couperin dynasty

Donald Macleod surveys Francois Couperin's musical family tree.

Donald Macleod marks 350 years since the birth of Francois Couperin, one of France’s most dazzling musical talents. His illustrious rise to fame began with his appointment as organist at St Gervais in Paris while he was still a teenager, and he went on to serve as a composer and harpsichordist at court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Known to his contemporaries as ‘Couperin Le Grand’, he is recognised today as the most important French composer of his generation.

In today's programme, Donald explores ‘Couperin Le Grand’ alongside his many musical relatives. The Couperin family tree was established in the vineyards around Chaumes and nurtured a long line of gifted musicians. Uncle Louis was the first of seven Couperins to serve as organist at St Gervais, including Francois himself and his cousin, Nicolas. Towards the end of his life, Francois’s daughter, Marguerite-Antoniette, took over some of her father’s harpsichord duties at the royal court. Another cousin, Armand-Louis, became a leading composer of the next generation and father to yet more musical Couperins who maintained the family trade right into the 19th century.

Wilfred Owen: Poetry and Peace

Gillian Clarke, Sabrina Mahfouz and Michael Symmons Roberts respond to the war poet Wilfred Owen with their own new commissions from the Royal Society of Literature. Shahida Bari hosts a discussion recorded with an audience at the British Library on the 100th anniversary of Owen's death during the crossing of the Sambre–Oise Canal on 4 November 1918, exactly 7 days (almost to the hour) before the signing of the Armistice which ended World War I.

Born in Cardiff, Gillian Clarke’s work has been on the GCSE and A Level exam syllabus for the past thirty years. She was the first woman to win the Wilfred Owen Award – for a sustained body of work that includes memorable war poems – in 2012.
Sabrina Mahfouz was brought up in London and Cairo, and is a playwright, poet, novelist and editor. She was elected an RSL Fellow in 2018.
Poet and Professor of Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University, Michael Symmons Roberts grew up less than a mile from Greenham Common and has often written about the Cold War ‘peace’.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000117p)
Minds at War: Series 5
Episode 2

The final run of Essays in the long-running series which explores the impact of the First World War on individual artists through the prism of a single great work of art.

2.Janet Montefiore on Rudyard Kipling's 1922 collection, Epitaphs

On 27 September 1915, 8,000 out of the 10,000 British troops who took part in the disastrous Battle of Loos were killed or wounded. One of these, 2nd Lieutenant John Kipling, eighteen years old, the son of Rudyard Kipling, was reported ‘missing believed killed.’ His body was never found.

Four years later, Rudyard Kipling published his ‘Epitaphs of the War 1914-1918’: thirty-one brief poems giving voice to those who died in the Great War: soldiers, airmen, nurses, non-combatants, Canadians, Indians, sailors, politicians, cowards and heroes.

These days, Kipling is often criticised for his imperialist views on "the white man's burden", but in this Essay, Kipling scholar, Janet Montefiore uncovers a more sympathetic figure. She tells the story behind a poignant collection of poems which express Kipling's personal grief whilst giving voice to a wider sense of outrage about the victims of the war, including the famously succinct condemnation :
If any question why we died,
Tell them, because our fathers lied.

Producer: Beaty Rubens

Among King’s selections is a mirologi, an ancient pentatonic tune performed in Greece since Homeric times; and a samantakas, a dance that as he can attest, can lead to out-of-body experiences.

Francois Couperin (1688-1733)
Couperin and the Church of St Gervais

Donald Macleod explores Francois Couperin’s enduring loyalty to his family church.

Donald Macleod marks 350 years since the birth of Francois Couperin, one of France’s most dazzling musical talents. His illustrious rise to fame began with his appointment as organist at St Gervais in Paris while he was still a teenager, and he went on to serve as a composer and harpsichordist at court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Known to his contemporaries as ‘Couperin Le Grand’, he is recognised today as the most important French composer of his generation.

The Couperin family were intimately connected to the Church of St Gervais in Paris. When Francois was made organist there, he succeeded his father, Charles, who in turn had inherited the post from his elder brother, Louis. Charles had died when Francois was aged only ten. He and his mother were allowed to stay on in the organist’s house rent free, while he trained to take over his father's position.

Couperin maintained his connection with St Gervais throughout his glittering career at court. He provided a number of works for liturgical use, including organ Masses which were his first works to be published during his lifetime. Donald also features excerpts from Couperin's Tenebrae Lessons, considered pinnacle of his sacred writing. These solemn choral pieces would be performed in services on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Holy Week, while candles lighting the church were gradually extinguished.

Landmark: Journey to the End of the Night

Better than Proust -- the man who made literature out of colloquial French -- the arch chronicler of human depravity --- some of the things that are said about Louis Ferdinand Céline, author of Journey to the End of the Night - one of the masterpieces of 20th century literature.
His semi- autobiographical novel, first published in 1932, is a ferocious assault on the hypocrisy and idiocy of his time. It follows its anti hero Ferdinand Bardamu from the battlefields of the First World War to Africa and America before returning to Paris and a chilling confrontation with his demons. The book established Céline as a an original and dangerous voice amongst the generation of writers who emerged from the carnage of the Great War. The fluency of his prose, its tone and bristling attitude has won him many admirers among them Philip Roth and Joseph Heller. He's entered popular culture too -- being quoted by Jim Morrison in the Doors' song End of the Night. But as well as the praise there's been criticism - not least for the vicious anti-Semitism that surfaces in some of his later work.
To explore the novel and the man Rana Mitter is joined by the writers, Marie Darrieussecq and Tibor Fischer, the literary historian, Andrew Hussey, and Céline's latest biographer, Damian Catani.

Marie Darrieussecq is the author of novels including Pig Tales, Tom is Dead and her latest Our Life in the Forest
Andrew Hussey is the author of The French Intifada : The Long War Between France and its Arabs
Tibor Fischer is the author of the novels, How to Rule the World, Under the Frog and The Thought Gang.
Damian Catani teaches at Birkbeck College in London and is writing a biography of Céline that will be published in 2020 by Reaktion Books.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00011hb)
Francois Couperin (1688-1733)
Couperin at the Court of the Sun King

Francois Couperin’s time at the court of Louis XIV.

Donald Macleod marks 350 years since the birth of Francois Couperin, one of France’s most dazzling musical talents. His illustrious rise to fame began with his appointment as organist at St Gervais in Paris while he was still a teenager, and he went on to serve as a composer and harpsichordist at court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Known to his contemporaries as ‘Couperin Le Grand’, he is recognised today as the most important French composer of his generation.

Francois Couperin was auditioned for the job of organist to France's Chapel Royal by Louise XIV himself. The Sun King had a keen passion for music and took a great interest in his court musician. After a matter of months Couperin was also appointed as harpsichord instructor to Les Enfants de France, the sons of the King. Teaching was an integral part of Francois Couperin’s career and in 1713 he published a set of harpsichord pieces called L’Art de Toucher le Clavecin, works specifically composed for use in teaching.

King Louis would attend Mass every day, and Couperin was also responsible for composing new works to be performed in the Versailles Chapel, such as his motet Respice in me. Couperin also composed chamber music for the entertainment of the Cour, and among his work to be performed towards the end of Louis’ life, were his Concert Royaux.

Opera Matinee: Andrea Chénier

Giordano's Andrea Chénier recorded at La Scala, Milan, starring Yusif Eyvazov and Anna Netrebko. Riccardo Chailly conducts. Presented by Tom Redmond

Andrea Chénier was premiered at La Scala in 1896 and this special performance was recorded in December last year to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of the legendary conductor Victor de Sabata.

The opera describes the life and untimely death of the French poet André Marie Chénier who was guillotined in 1794 just before the end of the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. He falls in love with Maddalena , daughter of the Countess of Coigny, who had initially treated him with disdain but changes her view of him when her mother is murdered by the revolutionaries. Chénier is sentenced to death by the Revolutionary Tribunal, and Maddalena visits him in prison. She bravely bribes the jailer to let her take the place of another condemned prisoner, and the couple express their love for each other as they go to meet their death.

Why are we silent when conflict is loud?

Journalist Peter Hitchens; the Rector of St James’s Church Piccadilly Lucy Winkett; performer and director Neil Bartlett and Professor Steve Brown from the Open University join Anne McElvoy at the Imperial War Museum for their 2018 Remembrance Lecture.

In 1919, the first national silence was observed to commemorate the end of the First World War. Organised silences were designed to remember the human impact of conflict, but do twentieth century collective silences fulfil that purpose? This debate brings together a panel of speakers to discuss the role of organised silences and what it means to be silent about conflict in 2018.

Producer: Torquil MacLeod.


THU 22:45 The Essay (m00011hs)
Minds at War: Series 5
Episode 4

The final run of Essays in the long-running series which explores the impact of the First World War on individual artists through the prism of a single great work of art.

4.Alex Walton recalls the Australian artist, Isobel - "Iso" - Rae, who spent the war in the Etaples art colony in the South of France, but whose work, as a female artist, has long been overlooked.

Born in Australia in 1860 and trained at Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria Art School, Rae travelled to France in 1887 and spent most of the rest of her life there. A longstanding member of the Étaples art colony, Rae lived in the area from the 1890s until the 1930s, painting the world she witnessed at Etaples Army Base Camp and exhibiting her work in London and Paris.

She was one of only two female Australian artists to live and paint in France during the war, but neither were included in their country's first group of official war artists.

Alex Walton, a curator at the Imperial War Museum, revisits her life and re-evaluates her largely forgotten work for a contemporary audience.

Producer: Beaty Rubens


THU 23:00 Late Junction (m00011hv)
Thom Yorke’s mixtape

Composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Thom Yorke compiles a mixtape.

Yorke made his name in alternative-rock band Radiohead in the 1990s. Their electronic forays became increasingly experimental in the early 2000s, and Yorke has continued to work with electronic textures as a solo artist and collaborator with the likes of Four Tet and Flying Lotus. He composes for film and theatre, and his first feature-film soundtrack is released this autumn.

Yorke’s mixtape reflects his immersion in electronic music across the generations, from Pierre Henry through Aphex Twin to Mars89, as well as his love of experimental vocal techniques, mixing in a classic work by Stockhausen, and krautrockers Faust.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000125z)
Francois Couperin (1688-1733)
Couperin, the fusion composer

Donald Macleod examines how Couperin introduced Italian flavours to his native French style.

Donald Macleod marks 350 years since the birth of Francois Couperin, one of France’s most dazzling musical talents. His illustrious rise to fame began with his appointment as organist at St Gervais in Paris while he was still a teenager, and he went on to serve as a composer and harpsichordist at court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Known to his contemporaries as ‘Couperin Le Grand’, he is recognised today as the most important French composer of his generation.

Many of Couperin's contemporaries looked down on the fashionable new musical styles emerging from other countries but Couperin embraced them. The Court of James II was in exile in France and brought with them music from Italy. As early as the 1690s, Francois was exploring Italian possibilities in music and he greatly admired the Trios of Arcangelo Couperin.

In the last decade of his career, Couperin published a collection of works called Les Gouts-Reunis, to bridge the musical divide between the Italian and French styles. He said in the preface that he himself had always admired works of merit without prejudice to the author or their nationality.
