Jean Rondeau at the London Festival of Baroque Music 13 May
At 16:00 at St Peter’s Eaton Square, the rising French virtuoso (“One of the most natural performers one is likely to hear on a classical music stage these days … a master of his instrument.” Washington Post) will explore the flamboyant, poetic and compelling fantasy world of the French harpsichord repertoire, with character pieces, preludes and dances music in a solo recital entitled Vertigo.
Later that evening, as part of “Late o’Clock Baroque”, Jean Rondeau will join lutenist Thomas Dunford and classical Persian percussionist Keyvan Chemirani at 21:30 at St John’s Smith Square to perform the trio’s crosscultural programme Jasmin Toccata, melding Persian percussion and Baroque instruments in imaginative transformations of European masters such as Scarlatti and Purcell and major composers from the Persian tradition.
