Influenced by the elegant 18th-century harpsichord works of Couperin, Rameau and Scarlatti, Le Tombeau de Couperin consists of "Prelude," "Forlane," "Menuet," and "Rigaudon." The uninterrupted 8 waltzes of Valses Nobles et Sentimentales, orchestrated in 1912 to serve as music for a ballet, abound with lilting rhythms and unexpected harmonic subtleties.
