François Couperin (1668 – 1733) was a French Baroque composer, organist and harpsichordist. When he was 49, he became court organist and composer in France. With his colleagues, Couperin gave a weekly concert, typically on Sunday. Many of these concerts were in the form of suites for violin, viol, oboe, bassoon and harpsichord, on which he was a virtuoso player. This piece is based on a work originally composed for harpsichord. An easy, accessible baroque duo for violin and viola. Ideal for advanced beginners or intermediate students, adult amateurs and performers.
