About This Event

Young French harpsichordist Jean Rondeau is a passionate and quirky champion of his instrument, with a maverick energy that brings a contemporary freshness to his period performances.

Here, in an all-French programme, he pairs music by giants of the French Baroque – François Couperin, Jean- Philippe Rameau and Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer – with a world premiere by genre-crossing French composer Eve Risser, whose music draws on jazz and and improvisation to create its edgy sound-world.

There will be no interval
