Jean Rondeau releases “Melancholy Grace”

Here’s a new and quite different album from Jean Rondeau. Recorded on a Philippe Humeau 2007 harpsichord, and a polygonal virginal (arpicordo) attributed to Francesco Poggi, c. 1575, this is a very special album indeed. The instruments’ voices alone are enough to stop you in your tracks. But Jean’s performance of the works featured in the album – by G. Frescobaldi, J. Sweelinck, B. Storace, O. Gibbons and J. Bull and more – most certainly will. One of Jean Rondeau’s most engaging albums to date.
