In this recording, Jean-Luc Ho pairs Bach's French Overture (Ouverture nach Französischer Art) with the Huitième Ordre, one of Couperin's most celebrated works. Both are played with the French art de toucher le clavecin (the art of playing the harpsichord), as expounded by Couperin and adopted by Bach, bringing to light the connection between these two masterpieces of the harpsichord repertoire.
