Couperin Aria in F major, BWV587


The Aria, BWV587, stands alongside two other similar trio arrangements of movements by Fasch and Telemann (BWV585 and 586). It is a transcription of section 4 of ‘L’Impériale’ by François Couperin, from his ‘Troisième Ordre’ for two violins and continuo, published in Paris in 1726. The original is given a different heading—‘Légérement’. As with other such pieces, the authorship is uncertain, though and earlier generation of scholarship suggested that the movement—in F major—was intended to be played as a filler between the Toccata and Fugue in F (BWV540), though there is no proof of this in the sources.
