Jane Clark, with Derek Adlam and Tom Foster, presents an afternoon of François Couperin’s Pièces de Clavecin by popular request, the Couperin events at the Handel House having always been oversubscribed. Jane is the author, with Derek Connon, of ’The mirror of human life’: Reflections on François Couperin's Pièces de Clavecin. ’In just a few hundred pages the authors create a compelling portrait of Couperin and his world, providing an invaluable service, not only to harpsichordists (and all les amis de Couperin) but to everyone interested in the music, art and theater of the period.’ Mark Kroll, writing in Early Music America, Summer 2011.

Janiculum played with all their usual subtlety and expertise ... the poised elegance of John Trusler's violin playing, which can be delicate and yet incisive as the music demands ... soprano Marie Vassiliou always offers a rewarding as well as enjoyable listening experience, as she is such a strongly communicative performer, conveying the mood of each piece to the obvious delight of the audience ... and it is always fascinating to hear Jane Clark playing Couperin because one is aware of being in touch with an expert on the subject ... but whatever she plays, Jane brings a sense of significance to the music ... in addition she offered Rameau's 'La Poule', which she performed not as a little comic turn, but as a miniature tragedy: an experiment for which there is clear justification, and which one could readily look forward to hearing again.
