Francois Couperin, Le Petit Rien

Francois Couperin

This charming piece has much pedagogical value. Both hands have numerous eighth notes, which require agility and evenness. Additionally, the piece requires fluidity in the fingering crossings in scalar passages. There are also many opportunities for creating exciting articulation. A strong, confident tone is needed for a performance of “Le Petit Rien.”
