Biography

Bringing youthful charisma to the world of Baroque music, harpsichord virtuoso Jean Rondeau – born April 23, 1991, in Paris, France - jumps from moments of delicate intimacy to flamboyant showmanship, taking the regal, magical sounds of the harpsichord to new realms. Immediately drawn to the instrument when he was six years old, Jean Rondeau went on to study renaissance music, conducting, composition, and jazz at the Paris Conservatoire of Music, later graduating from the Guildhall School of Music in London, England. He came to prominence in 2012 when he won a string of prestigious music prizes, including the EUBO Development Trust, which judged him to be the most promising talent in the European Union. At the age of 24, Jean Rondeau recorded some of Bach's most complicated, landmark compositions on his debut album Bach: Imagine (2015). Some of the pieces on the album were originally written for harpsichord, but he also offered his own arrangements of works that were intended for the lute, violin, and flute. His second album Vertigo (2016) featured the work of French composers Jean-Phillippe Rameau and Pancrace Royer. It was recorded on an antique harpsichord dating from the 1700s in the historic Chateau d'Assas in a rural village in Montpellier. He pursued more traditional Baroque influences when he composed the soundtrack to the movie Paula, a 2017 biopic about the life of artist Paula Modersohn-Becker. He also paid tribute to J.S. Bach and his three most famous sons Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emanuel, and Johann Christian on Dynastie: Bach Concertos (2017). Further albums include Barricades (2020), Melancholy Grace (2021), and Bach: Goldberg Variations (2022). Jean Rondeau has also experimented with other musical genres including free-form jazz in the group Note Forget.
