Jean Rondeau and Nevermind Performing at Sound Unbound in London the 29th & 30th April
Harpsichordist Jean Rondeau and baroque quartet Nevermind will be performing at the 2017 Sound Unbound Festival at the Barbican Centre in London 29-30 April. The event, which will be the first since 2015’s edition, encourages audiences to get up close and personal with classical music, with a programme that mixes familiar classics with sounds from living composers who are pushing the boundaries of what classical means today.
Jean Rondeau’s latest solo album, Bach: Dynastie, was released on Erato/Warner Classics in February 2017. He is currently on a world tour taking him to Japan, France, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, the United Kingdom and the United States. See his full concert schedule here.
Nevermind is a young ensemble of four musicians from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris who combine their passion for early music with influences from jazz and traditional music. The quartet is comprised of Anna Besson (flute), Louis Creac’h (violin), Robin Pharo (viola da Gamba) and Jean Rondeau (harpsichord). In 2017, the baroque ensemble is performing at festivals around the globe, including the Thuringer Bachwochen festival, the Boston Early Music Festival, and the Festival Musiq’3 in Bruxelles.
