Bonus “Syrinx” #6 – Le clavecin

At rehearsal wth my Dolce Suono Ensemble in a room at the Curtis Institute of Music, I realized my outfit matched the harpsichord. We played Dowland, Rameau, and Handel with harpsichord at our latest program. I was inspired for this Syrinx by Debussy’s admiration for the French Baroque, and especially the way in which he drew upon such composers as Rameau and Couperin in his late, neoclassical period.
