Event Details



A classical harpsichordist, composer, and jazz pianist? Meet Jean Rondeau from France, one of the most fascinating musicians today. Having started on the harpsichord at age 6, and is now about to turn 26, Rondeau has developed an affinity for the instrument with rock-solid techniques that allows him to explore its endless possibilities and challenges. Winning the first prize at the prestigious Bruges International Harpsichord Competition, Rondeau’s playing was described as ‘lively, ardent, captivating, and always dynamically charged’ (La Libre Belgique). In his Hong Kong debut, Rondeau will present Bach’s Goldberg Variations, infusing the monumental work with a sense of modernity. Come and experience his ongoing curiosity at work, taking the centuries-old instrument back into the spotlight.
