Described as “one of the most natural performers one is likely to hear on a classical music stage these days” by The Washington Post, Jean Rondeau is a real ambassador for his instrument. His outstanding talent and approach to harpsichord repertoire has been critically acclaimed, marking him out as one of today’s leading harpsichordists.
In the 2019/20 season, Jean Rondeau returns to Wigmore Hall and Gstaad Menuhin Festival. He will also return to Carnegie Hall, following a sold-out recital debut last season, for a performance with Orchestra of St Luke’s under Bernard Labadie. He also returns to Germany for a special focus at the Barocktage at the Berlin Staatsoper performing a harpsichord recital, as well as a jazz recital on piano, based on improvisations of Scarlatti’s music, as well as performing Poulenc’s Concerto Champêtre with Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz in Ludwigshafen.
Jean Rondeau also play-conducts: he play-conducted the Kammerorchester Basel last season and regularly play-conducts his own ensemble in the Dynastie (Bach Family Concertos) project.
In addition to his engagements as a soloist, recitalist and conductor, Jean Rondeau also regularly gives masterclasses around the world. This season includes masterclasses at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Sienna, the Gstaad Academy, Hong Kong University and at the Juilliard School in New York City.
