The work is in rondeau form, employing a variant of the traditional romanesca in the bass in quadruple time rather than the usual triple time. The effect is shimmering, kaleidoscopic and seductive, a sonic trompe l'oeil that seem to have presaged images of fractal mathematics, centuries before they existed. The piece was voted at 76 in the Australian Classic music of France countdown. All four possible spelling combinations have since been used with "double r" and a "y" being the most common. There has been much speculation on the meaning of the phrase "mysterious barricades" with no direct evidence available to back up any theory.

Les Barricades mystérieuses (Couperin, François)

Last winter I heard a piece of music I had never heard before and, like so many before me, I became obsessed. Couperin was born in to one of the most famous musical families in all of Europe. Thanks to his family reputation, Couperin was pretty much set for life where musical employment was concerned, which may have given him more confidence and freedom musically. And he really is great. So remember how those other titles were pretty obvious and match up nicely with the tone painting in the music? This one haunts peoples dreams.
