Couperin was no twinkly-eyed portraitist but a rather acute observer of human (and animal) nature in all its absurdity and indignity, and his volumes of keyboard pieces contain subtly satirical musical comment on pompous old men, sartorial peacocks, country bumpkins and all sorts of other parodies whose precise nature is rather lost to history.
