Jean Rondeau’s concert at Capriccio scores a 2022 Top Ten Performance rating

Capriccio’s October 26, 2022, concert featuring Jean Rondeau performing J.S. Bach’s ‘Goldberg Variations’ won a spot in the Washington Classical Review’s Ten Top Performances of 2022.

With this exceptional artist at the keyboard performing one of Bach’s most beloved works this was no surprise. Here’s what the Washington Classical Review has to say about the performance:

‘The best thing about a performance of an ultra-familiar work is if it surprises you. The French harpsichordist, who has made two recordings of this Bach masterpiece, surprised over and over again in this dynamic live performance …from an improvised intonato as prelude, through some extravagantly ornamented repeats, to a stripped-down return of the opening Aria.
