Jean Rondeau, one of today’s leading harpsichordists, favors us with a recital of keyboard works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Domenico Scarlatti, including transcriptions for keyboard by Bach and of Bach. Tonight’s recital was recorded live in concert in London’s Wigmore Hall on June 10, 2019, made available to us only recently by the European Broadcasting Union. Thanks to our association with the EBU, we’re able to bring you Jean Rondeau’s recital as a stream for thirty days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will be visible when the link is accessible.
