The legend surrounding the 'Goldberg Variations', performed here by Jean Rondeau for All of Bach, is such a nice one. Count Hermann Karl von Keyserlinck was having trouble sleeping and asked Bach for some pleasant music to pass the time, to be played by Keyserlinck’s harpsichord prodigy Johann Gottlieb Goldberg.

Jean Rondeau, the French harpsichordist, performs Domenico Scarlatti’s mercurial Sonata K. 175 A Minor: Allegro, offering a first taste of his new album, released on 19th October. It is devoted to 20 of Scarlatti’s endlessly inventive sonatas – he wrote some 550 of these compact, colourful and captivating works. https://wnrcl.me/rondeauscarlatti
“When it comes to music, dishonesty simply has no place – there can be no falsity,” says Jean Rondeau. “Harpsichord repertoire is about unlocking a past language and figuring out how things were done back then – not so much about finding something new.”

Jean Rondeau, the imaginative young French harpsichordist, describes the Bach family as “one of the great dynasties of western music”. Having devoted his first Erato disc, Imagine, to works by the towering Johann Sebastian, he now returns to Bach’s world for his third release, Dynastie, which complements concertos by Johann Sebastian with concertos by his three most famous sons, Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emmanuel and Johann Christian.
