Les Barricades Mysterieuses

December 18, 2013

I discovered this lovely piece by Francois Couperin via Andrew Sullivan’s blog and find it mesmerizing. The title is cryptic. It’s a harpsichord piece, but it sounds ravishing in this piano rendition by the great Hungarian pianist Gyorgy Cziffra. You can find it on YouTube but from this link it plays without any advertising.
