La Tendre Melancholie, The Music of Francois Couperin, Forty Hall


Yeo Yat-Soon on Harpsichord

Prize-winning harpsichordist and distinguished teacher returns to Forty Hall with two programmes to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the birth of François Couperin. Court musician to Louis XIV, Couperin was the most romantic and poetic of harpsichord composers.

His elegant style is a musical echo of the intimate melancholy seen in the paintings of his close contemporary Antoine Watteau. Yat-Soon intersperses the music of Couperin with works by two of his English counterparts, Henry Purcell and William Croft.

Sunday 29 April & 16 September 2pm - 2.30pm

Forty Hall, Forty Hill, Enfield EN2 9HA
