Jean Rondeau


First pupil in harpsichord of Blandine Verlet for more than ten years, Jean Rondeau trained in basso continuo, in organ, in piano, in jazz and improvisation, in writing, and in direction of choir and orchestra. These are long pages of happiness from his years of learning that he spent at the Paris Conservatory as well as at the Guildhall School in London. He obtained his prices for harpsichord and basso continua with very good mention and congratulations from the jury.

At only twenty-one years old, Jean Rondeau was awarded the 1st prize of the Bruges International Harpsichord Competition in 2012 as well as the "EUBO Development Trust" prize, awarded to the youngest and most promising musician in the European Union. The same year, he also won the Prague Spring International Harpsichord Competition (64th festival, 2012) for which he won the 2nd Prize and the Prize for the best interpretation of the contemporary piece written for this competition. In 2013, he also won the Young Soloist award from French Public Radio Stations.

He released his first solo album 'Imagine' dedicated to Jean-Sébastien Bach with Earto (Warner Classics) in early 2015 and was "Instrumental Soloist Revelation" at the Victoires de la Musique the same year.

In solo, chamber music or orchestra, Jean Rondeau has had the good fortune to perform frequently throughout Europe, its largest capitals and major festivals, as well as in North America (United States and Canada). He also performs more specifically with “Note Forget” (winner of the 2012 Sunside Trophies), a group of which he is a founding member where his compositions are played, in a universe more oriented towards jazz, as well as “Nevermind” (Festival prize of early music from Utrecht), a group of which he is a founding member and in which the repertoire is mainly oriented towards 18th century Baroque chamber music.
