Experience a thrilling musical journey with Jean Rondeau, the French harpsichord virtuoso and early-music superstar who has redefined the art of his instrument and captivated audiences worldwide, in this concert presented by the Candlelight Concert Society. With training in harpsichord, organ, piano, continuo, jazz and improvisation, and conducting, Rondeau leads an active career as a soloist, recitalist, conductor, instructor, and award-winning recording artist. Rondeau’s program for Candlelight is adapted from his latest CD, Gradus ad Parnassum. Aspiring to the mythological mountain home of the Muses, this program explores the possibilities of the harpsichord in piano repertoire spanning over more than 400 years, enlightening listeners on what repertoire written for the piano can reveal about the harpsichord—and what the harpsichord can reveal about repertoire written for the piano.

His program will feature:

  • Johann Joseph Fux: Harpeggio
  • Joseph Haydn: Piano Sonata No. 31 in A-flat major, Hob. XVI:46
  • Muzio Clementi: Gradus ad Parnassum, Op. 44, No. 45
  • Ludwig van Beethoven: Praeludium No. 2 for Piano or Organ, Op. 39
  • W. A. Mozart: Piano Sonata No. 16 in C major, K. 545
