Jean Rondeau, harpsichord
J. S. Bach: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
“Rondeau is a wizard: forget grace, forget melancholy – this is brilliance.” Gramophone (U.K.)
As a solo artist and a member of the Baroque ensemble Nevermind, Jean Rondeau has expanded the boundaries of early music and earned universal acclaim for his recordings and live performances. His outstanding talent and innovative approach to keyboard repertoire will be on full display with this performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, presented in its complete form, with the indicated repeats and judicious insertion of moments of silence.
