Video of the day: Pavel Kolesnikov records Couperin Dances


Kolesnikov plays extracts from Couperin's Bauyn Manuscript

For his latest Hyperion album, pianist Pavel Kolesnikov has turned his attention to the music of Louis Couperin. In the video below, Kolesnikov speaks engagingly about Couperin's unique sound world and performs extracts from this beguiling music.

Kolesnikov's Couperin album is reviewed in the April 2018 issue (read the review here), and our writer Patrick Rucker concluded: 'Very few pianists of Kolesnikov’s generation share his abundance of intelligence, sensitivity, imagination and sheer instrumental mastery. I look forward to hearing him again, and soon, in repertory that allows his manifold gifts to blossom and take flight.'

Kolesnikov's Couperin album, 'Dances from the Bauyn Manuscript', is out now on Hyperion Records: hyperion-records.co.uk
