ABOUT THIS CONCERTThis imaginative young French harpsichordist is “an alchemist eager for experimentation” (Nelida Nassar), already a star in the early music universe and in demand for orchestra and chamber music collaborations. Rondeau’s concerts convey “a sense of absolute connection and improvisatory ease” (Gramophone). He is especially noted for memorable Bach performances, and has chosen for this matinée recital repertoire than includes transcriptions of several instrumental works, including one very seldom performed on the harpsichord: Brahms’ setting of the Chaconne in D minor.
