The purpose of this document is to examine and explain historical performance practices as applicable to the Treiziéme Concert à 2 instrumens à L’unisson of Fran çois Couperin. It provides an in depth look at the written and unwritten traditions of tempo, articulation, phrasing, ornamentation, and the use of in égal. Meant as a guide for players of the modern bassoon, this monograph guides the reader through the aspects of performance practice listed above and their application to that instrument.

This document contains an introductory chapter and a biographical chapter. The remaining chapters explain the components of historical performance practice that warrant consideration in the Treiziéme Concert à 2 instrumens à L’unisson. The final chapter serves as a preface to an edited version of the 13th concert.

There are two appendices. The first appendix is a clean copy of the facsimile reprint, in modern notation, and the second appendix is an edited performing edition of the work. Both appendices were created with the Finale computer notation program.
