Allemande in G minor

Bauyn Manuscript; No 93 in the 1985 Moroney edition

Allemande 93 both looks back to the bold dissonances and polyphony of the lutentists and forward to the style of writing practised by François Couperin with its independent melodic lines in each hand.

from notes by Adrian Powney © 2018

L’allemande 93 revient à la fois sur les dissonances et la polyphonie audacieuses des luthistes et anticipe le style d’écriture pratiqué par François Couperin avec ses lignes mélodiques indépendantes à chaque main.

In der Allemande Nr. 93 bezieht Couperin sich einerseits zurück auf die kühnen Dissonanzen und die Polyphonie der Lautenisten und antizipiert andererseits den Kompositionsstil seines Neffen François Couperin, der sich durch eigenständige melodische Linien in beiden Händen auszeichnet.
