Do you own a remote-control? Then put the new GENUIN harpsichord CD in your player, close your eyes and press the “play” button! With the first chord, the young Italian Francesco Corti will abduct you to Versailles into the private sphere of Louis XIV… in the high rooms of an Antwerp city house, as the guest of a textile merchant… right? The music of Louis Couperin tells of an epoch in which one measured time differently from the way one does today; although hardly any of his pieces last over five minutes, there is no sign of any hurry. The choice sound of the historical instrument, the old tuning with its vibrations and Corti’s clearly articulated and pulsing playing – it goes not only to the aesthete’s heart but also to that of the Francophile and perhaps also the Royalist as well – truly royal!

"That Corti is a well-versed, stylistically confident and technically sovereign musician is already clear after just a few bars. His playing is clearly structured, original in the improvisation-like Préludes and also the well-balanced, brilliant recording technology gives this recording a “noble character."
