Les Baricades Misterieuses / The Mysterious Barricades

What did Francois Couperin mean when he named this piece in 1717? It is a haunting little piece that will insinuate itself into your head so you can listen to it over and over again. Originally written for harpsichord it has been played on many instruments and ensembles. The Nouveau Guinea Wind Ensemble decided to take it on with a new transcription to fit their palate of instruments. The result is this beautiful rendition of Les Baricades Misterieuses by François Couerin.

Now you might not be aware of it, but in the original harpsichord music the title of the music was Les Baricades Misterieuses, but the spelling of the title has changed over the centuries. You can also find it spelled as Les Barricades Mysterieuses which is also accepted as correct. you might also find it spelled Les Baricades Mystérieuses or mixed around the other way: Les Barricades Mistérieuses, but, never fear, it's all good.. .
