Ernst Stolz Harpsichord
Louis Couperin (c. 1626 1661) was a French Baroque composer who made significant contributions to the development of Baroque keyboard music. A skillful harpsichordist, organist, and gambist, he was one of the founders of the French harpsichord school and invented the genre of unmeasured prelude for harpsichord. He and his nephew, François le Grand, were the most renowned members of the Couperin family.
