Philippe Pierlot & Daniel Zapico/ F. Couperin/ Prélude & Gavotte (live @TivoliVredenburg Utrecht)

Philippe Pierlot (viola da gamba) and Daniel Zapico (theorbe) perform Prélude and Gavotte composed by François Couperin.

Couperin (1668 – 1733) is mostly know for his harpsichord compositions, but his gamba pieces are outstanding and challenging for gambist because Couperin composed without knowing the limitations of the gamba.
