‘Virtuosic and not afraid to take risks in their performances’ as described by ABC Classic Australia, Nevermind are pioneers of modern and traditional Baroque music. This repertoire encapsulates their unique sound and distinctive collaboration.
Anna Besson, Louis Creac’h, Robin Pharo and Jean Rondeau founded the quartet Nevermind in 2013. Together they share and present works by transforming the quartet repertoire (flute, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord) of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
The Alpha / Outhere label released Nevermind’s first album, Conversations, in 2016 and their second album, Quatuors Parisiens, followed quickly in 2017. The Quartet is currently working on their much anticipated third album, recorded for the Alpha / Outhere label, with works devoted to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
Highlights of the 2019/20 season included a successful and fruitful Musica Viva tour of Australia. The Quartet has performed at many festivals including the Rheingau Musik Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Festival of Saintes, the Terpsichore Festival, Musiq3 Festival in Belgium, Gstaad Menuhin Festival in Switzerland, Boston Early Music Festival and the Bel-Air Clavier Festival.
Touring is core to Nevermind’s success, and they have had the pleasure of travelling to the US, Canada, Iceland and Russia. They have performed at esteemed venues such as the Auditorium of the Louvre and the Theater des Champs-Elysees in Paris, the Hong Kong City Hall, Warsaw Philharmonie, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam, Concertgebouw Bruges, BOZAR in Brussels, LSO St Lukes and the Barbican in London.
