Harpsichordist Rebecca Pechefsky performs François Couperin's "Les Ombres Errantes," the conclusion of his 25th Ordre (Paris, 1730), in New York City's historic Morris-Jumel Mansion Museum, built in 1765. This final movement of the suite is, like the first movement, filmed in the Octagon Room, where Ms. Pechefsky and Brooklyn Baroque perform in a yearly concert series, presenting 18th-century music in an 18th-century room.
Unlike the first movement, filmed in the morning, this movement was shot at night. The brief opening sequence of this video was shot in the main vestibule and the basement.
George Washington slept directly above the Octagon Room during one of his campaigns in 1776. The other movements, all shot in different parts of the mansion, are posted on the Quill Classics YouTube channel.
