You could space them out a bit and play the C-D-C as triplet 16ths fitting into an 8th, and the Bb-C as ordinary 16ths fitting into the next 8th (coinciding with the printed Bb).
Thanks, Rainer, that was very interesting. I put this piece away, but now I feel like taking it back out again. It’s just sort of an unusual piece..I mean for Couperin. I might be totally wrong about that, because I really don’t know a lot about his music. But this piece just doesn’t sound baroque to me.
Anyway, that Procopio guy sure is a natural at the harpsichord! I don’t think his tempo was fast, though. But I think he did like what you said above—the C-D-C triplet.
