BACH AND THE FRENCH - David Clark Little, harpsichord**
Sunday May 3, 2009, 4 PM - First Presbyterian Church of Willow Grove

BACH  AND  THE  FRENCH, DAVID  CLARK  LITTLE,  HARPSICHORD, works of Louis Couperin, François Couperin, Rameau, J.S. Bach, Jacques Duphly; 4:00 PM, Sunday, May 3, 2009; First Presbyterian Church of Willow Grove, 502 North Easton Road, Willow Grove, PA; 215-659-5938. Free-will offering. 


J.S. Bach knew the French Baroque style well.  He particularly admired the keyboard music of François Couperin, and even made copies of some pieces. François Couperin, named “Le Grand” was the main musician to Louis XIV, the “Sun King.”  He wrote over 230 pieces for the harpsichord.  Louis Couperin, was uncle to the better-known François Couperin, wrote daring harmonies, and experimental "unmeasured preludes."


The harpsichord David will play was built in 1986 by Robert Wilson, of Lambertville NJ, and is a copy of a French double-manual harpsichord built in 1732 by the French builder Blanchet.


David Clark Little studied Organ, Harpsichord, and Composition at the West Chester State University, PA, and in the Netherlands, at the conservatories of Hilversum, Amsterdam, and Utrecht.  Among his teachers were several well-known performers, including harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt, and organist Keith Chapman.  He has performed widely solo and in ensembles in the USA, the Netherlands, France, and Indonesia. Currently he is Organist/Choir Director at the First Presbyterian Curch of Willow Grove, PA; and teaches organ, harpsichord & piano privately, and at the Settlement School in Philadelphia, PA.  Running a private studio, he produces CDs with the Adnarim label.  Among these are his performances of harpsichord Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti; and  his own arrangement of the Goldberg Variations by Johann Sebastian Bach.
