Jean Rondeau (harpsichord)

IMAGINE is the first Warner Classics release from the dynamic young French harpsichordist Jean Rondeau, who sees it as “an exploration of all the possibilities that lie in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and in the harpsichord”. Praised by radio station France Musique for his “maturity, fabulous touch and originality,” the multi-talented Rondeau feels that, as a young musician today, he has “an incredible opportunity to break out of the concert hall and meet the world”.

“French prodigy Jean Rondeau on a mission to make the harpsichord hip… …his brooding looks make him the latest “sex symbol” in the classical firmament” The Independent

Born in 1991, Rondeau is a musician with impeccable credentials in his instrument – and he has many prizes to prove it – but, with his multiple talents and interests, he defies simple categorisation: he is also a musicologist and is trained as an organist and a choral conductor, while as a pianist he is co-founder of a group (called Note Forget – The Project) that performs his jazz compositions.

He feels that, as a young musician today, he has “an incredible opportunity to break out of the concert hall and meet the world”. He has already performed all over Europe and in the United States, is a member of the four-person Baroque ensemble Nevermind, and collaborates regularly with the European Baroque orchestra Les Ambassadeurs. “My aim is to be as genuine as possible in my relationship with the instrument and with the audience,” he says, “I want to share my passion for the harpsichord, and I know lots of young people who are drawn to classical music, so I also try to give it an image that is full of dynamism.”

He was only six years old when he fell in love with the sound of the harpsichord and decided he wanted to learn it. “The harpsichord has a special sound and timbre, and it can really charm an audience. Its possibilities are endless,” he says. His principal teacher was Blandine Verlet, especially renowned in the works of Bach and Couperin, and he went on to study at Paris’ Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique, at the Sorbonne (where he took a degree in Musicology) and at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

In 2012, at the age of 21 he was awarded first prize at the prestigious Bruges International Harpischord Competition, where the newspaper La Libre Belgique praised “his ability to make the harpsichord sing and to move the music forward ... a virtuosity that allows him to dash off lightning appoggiaturas, and phrasing that nourishes and refreshes the drama,” summing up his playing as “lively, ardent, captivating and always dynamically charged”. In that same year he also won second prize at the Prague Spring International Harpsichord Competition and received the European Union Baroque Orchestra’s Development Trust Award. In 2013 he was presented the Young Soloist Prize of Francophone Public Radio by the broadcaster France Musique, which singled him out for his “maturity, fabulous touch and originality.”

IMAGINE features one of Bach’s most celebrated harpsichord works, the Italian Concerto BWV 971, but it mainly comprises transcriptions of music that the composer conceived for other instruments: the violin, the lute and the flute. “This isn’t a disc of transcriptions, though,” says Rondeau. “As its name suggests, it is about imagination – an exploration of all the possibilities that lie in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and in the harpsichord. And though it’s not making a direct link to John Lennon, it’s nice if the title of the CD calls him to mind.”

“Not only is the trajectory utterly sure-footed; he can also generate palpable excitement without resorting to empty bravado...Rondeau is a natural communicator, unimpeded by the imperative to score academic points...Make no mistake - this is an auspicious debut.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2015 *****

“Rondeau evidently listens as well as he plays...He expertly projects the Italian Concerto's solo/tutti designations, yet his fastidious articulation slightly sacrifices forward impetus...The warm, full-bodied and well-balanced recorded sound further enhances Rondeau's thoughtful artistry.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2015

Joshua Bell: Bach

Joshua Bell: Bach


Bach, J S:

Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, BWV1041

Violin Concerto No. 2 in E major, BWV1042

Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004: Chaconne

arr. Mendelssohn/Milone

Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV1068: Air ('Air on a G String')

Gavotte (Rondeau) from Partita No. 3 in E major BWV1006

arr. Schumann/Milone


As follow up to the 2013 acclaimed and chart-topping Beethoven album, Grammy® Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell continues as Music Director and Conductor of the world-renowned ensemble, Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

On their new collaboration, this time with Bell also as a soloist, he conducts ASMF from the leader’s chair in an all-Bach program.

Joshua Bell is the first American and first person to hold the title of Music Director since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.

“The Gavotte makes a perfectly sweet, well-mannered miniature but the Chaconne, such a towering solo piece in itself, doesn’t gain a great deal from this treatment...There’s redemption, however, in crisp and exciting readings of the Violin Concertos Nos 1 and 2 (BWV 1041 and 1042), with Bell and the players in perfect accord.” The Observer, 5th October 2014 ****

“such is Bell's particular brand of ease with which he mixes traditional sensibility with the lighter articulations and gestures of recent tastes that one is instantly spellbound...Locating small shapes within a larger architecture is one of Bell's crowning virtues, alongside a depth of sound of almost Henryk Szeryng-like dimensions... the conception is original and exceptionally executed with searing and soaring artistic intent.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014

“Bell describes his approach to Bach as 'a melding of the old and the new'. The former is evidenced in his suave, silky tone and extrovert virtuosity, in his expressive liberties with tempo and in the full-bodied orchestral sound; but Bell also pays tribute to more recent trends inspired by period performance practice.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2015 ****

“In both concertos, Bell's ornamental flourishes are a welcome surprise and both [concertos] offer enjoyable perspectives on these familiar staples…the blistering heat of the Chaconne is rather dimmed by Mendelssohn's polite backing-track [but] Schumann's accompaniment offers gentility to music which can and often does sound startlingly new…the Air from the D major Orchestral Suite is an attractive addition to the album, which in all offers 50 minutes of engagingly turned and finely polished Bach” International Record Review, March 2015

Prelude & Fugue Book 2 No. 20, BWV889

Prelude & Fugue Book 2 No. 9 in E major, BWV878


Once again, charismatic Hélène Grimaud presents an album with an individual concept. Bach vs. Bach Transcribed brings together original keyboard works by the master with works by Bach arranged (transcribed) for the piano by pianist-composers of later generations: Busoni, Liszt, Rachmaninov. This is the first time that Hélène Grimaud has recorded Bach – a challenge for any musician. The repertoire includes the famous Well-Tempered Clavier II and the Concerto no. 1 in D minor, the latter performed with Grimaud’s regular collaborators, the Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Bach “Transcribed” features the Bach/Busoni version of the Chaconne in D minor, the Violin Partita in E major arranged for piano by Rachmaninov, and Liszt’s version of the Prelude and Fugue in A minor

A landmark project in Grimaud’s successful career

“…the C sharp minor Book 1 Prelude and Fugue radiates nuance, linear dimension and a captivating organic flow that evokes Edwin Fischer and Samuel Feinberg at their most sublime. While Grimaud imbues Busoni's violin transcription with freewheeling momentum and organ-like sustaining power and resonance, she scales down Liszt's organ transcription to more intimate, less gothic tonal dimensions, and quite convincingly so at that.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2009

Georg Gulyás plays Bach I

Georg Gulyás plays Bach I


Bach, J S:

Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004: Chaconne

Lute Suite No. 1 in E minor, BWV996

Lute Suite No. 2 in C minor, BWV997


Georg Gulyás (guitar)

The Suite in E Minor and the Suite in C Minor, composed sometime between 1707–17 and 1740–41 respectively, have been the subject of a great deal of speculation since no manuscripts of the works in Bach’s hand have been discovered. Nevertheless, scholars are agreed that the suites really were composed by Johann Sebastian Bach though whether he actually intended them for the lute is still a matter for discussion. Perhaps Bach himself would not have expended much time on such speculation since he freely transcribed his works for different instruments often shifting to keys that best suited the intended instrument.

“Having now worked so intensively with Bach’s music in preparing this recording, I have again been reminded that his compositions constantly offer new discoveries. And this is one of the reasons why it is so rewarding to return yet again to his music, however familiar we may believe that we are with it.” Georg Gulyás
