About This Performance

This concert is supported by Martin and Cynthia Heckscher and the Gould Family Foundation.

With his electric-shock hair and Paris Conservatoire musical education, French prodigy Jean Rondeau is “on a mission to make the harpsichord hip” (The Independent). Hear this antique instrument played as never before by “one of the most natural performers one is likely to hear on a classical music stage” (Washington Post).
