Jean Rondeau, harpsichord

Johann Sebastian Bach, The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988

Bach's Goldberg Variations towers above every other work in this genre; Baroque certainly produced nothing like it. So carefully and symmetrically constructed, Goldberg Variations meets all expectations: a monumental work of deep expressiveness and heightening tension, it blends dazzling virtuosity and intricate counterpoint, quiet moments and unconditional technical brilliance.

Bach’s complicated keyboard piece was originally written for the harpsichord, an instrument that Jean Rondeau has been striving to restore to its former glory. An idiosyncratic and versatile musician of rare genius, Rondeau is recipient of the prestigious “Révélation soliste instrumental” award at the Victoires de la Musique Classique (2015).



Rondeau showed a deep awareness of both the larger structure of the entire cycle and the special qualities of individual variations.

In the performance by Jean Rondeau, The Goldberg Variations feel like a perilous yet ultimately exciting expedition.
