A Strange Style: Music of Marais, Couperin, and Forqueray
Two of the world’s finest soloists—Christophe Coin and Béatrice Martin—join together for a magnificent recital of French Baroque chamber music for viola da gamba and harpsichord. For their first-ever concert as a duo, Coin and Martin perform captivating selections from three of the greatest instrumental composers of the French Baroque—Marin Marais, François Couperin, and Antoine Forqueray—featuring movements from Marais’s intensely virtuosic Suitte d’un Goût Étranger.
