A Quest for Excellence in the World of Early Keyboard Music
Louis Couperin Released
Like Grounds for Pleasure, Colin's latest CD, Louis Couperin, was recorded on the early French harpsichord by Nicholas Celini that he restored during 2013. The music is by the 17th century French master Louis Couperin, uncle of the more famous François.
This disc is being launced at the very special introductory price of £12.00 (R.R.P. £14.50) and is available from this site.
For a limited period, everyone buying a copy of Did Bach Really Mean That? will receive a complimentary CD of Bach's Goldberg Variations. Colin Booth's recording of the Goldberg Variations brings vividly to life many of the insights from the pages of the book, and has recieved widespread critical acclaim, including comments like these, from three leading harpsichordists:
"The first recording or performance of the Goldbergs I've ever enjoyed! Cross my heart... You make the music alive and kicking, but without resorting to extremes. Fascinating articulation and ornaments with which I almost always agree; apt tempi; lovely sound as a bonus." Colin Tilney
"Wow! What a truly wonderful surprise. I am completely bowled over by your very individual interpretation... The sound is just right and shows the instrument in the very best light..." Richard Lester
"I'm listening to your CD: It's awesome, many congrats! Very nice sound.. ps. love the subtle inégalité." David Wright
