Although almost exact contemporaries, the lives of Johann Sebastian Bach and Domenico Scarlatti couldn’t have been more different. Tonight, young French harpsichordist Jean Rondeau presents a program of works by Bach and Scarlatti, as well as encores by François Couperin, on the 1737 Christian Zell harpischord, only one of three Zell harpsichords remaining, held in Barcelona’s Museu de la Música. This performance was recorded live in concert November 29, 2016 in Oriol Martorell Hall in Barcelona’s LAuditori.
A student of Blandine Verlet for more than ten years, Jean Rondeau (born 1991) continued his musical eduation at the Paris Conservatory and London’s Guildhall School of Music. He’s performed as a soloist and chamber musician throughout Europe, Aisa, and the United States. Jean Rondeau appears frequently with Nevermind Baroque Quartet and is founder and pianist of the jazz ensemble Note Forget.
