I had mixed feelings about Olivier Baumont's recording of Rameau's complete solo harpsichord works (Adda, 5/90). Technically he is an accomplished player but I sensed a self-consciousness in his playing and a somewhat rarefied approach to the music. Now he has turned his attention to Couperin whose four books of harpsichord pieces were published between 1713 and 1730. Whether or not Baumont intends to record the entire oeuvre is unclear but here, meanwhile, is the Fourth and last Book (1730) complete
