A fine choice of music by three generations of the Couperin dynasty, from the brooding intensity of Louis, via the ornate elegance of François le Grand, to the more transparent and melodious works of Armand-Louis. Hirosawa gives assured, spacious performances, though the harpsichord sound is somewhat brittle. Kate Bolton
