Christophe Rousset at the Edinburgh Festival

Lucie Skeaping presents highlights from a concert recorded at the Edinburgh International Festival. World-renowned harpsichord virtuoso Christophe Rousset showcases the magnificent instruments preserved in Edinburgh's St Cecilia's Hall Museum with a programme of music by Purcell, Couperin, Rameau, and Froberger. The instruments, some more than 400 years old, are often as spectacular to look at as they are to listen to. Rousset performs music that historically may have been played on them, revealing how developments in instrument design and in musical style are often interlinked.
