Program Notes on Fanfare pour la suite de la Diane by Couperin :

This piece Fanfare pour la suite de la Diane by François Couperin is part of the Pièces de clavecin, premier livre, 2e ordre.

This album of harpsichord pieces was published in Paris in 1713.

This particular Fanfare pour la suite de la Diane is in the typical style of hunting music.

Indeed, in Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing.

She was associated with wild animals and woodland, and was thought to have the power to talk to and control animals.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, trills and mordents) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

However, it is important to remember that François Couperin, unlike other composers of the Baroque period, insisted that no ornamentation whatsoever be ADDED to his music.

He made it clear also that all the ornaments he wrote must be played, and according to his own instructions.

Also, as can be heard in the video of this Fanfare pour la suite de Diane, the player may use the long-short inequality which is typical of French Baroque music.
