"Barricades" by Jean Rondeau is Presto Classical's album of the week
The new album "Barricades" by Jean Rondeau and Thomas Dunford is the album of the week from Presto Classical.
In the explanatory statement it says:
“Although the Rondeau-Dunford duo cultivate an air of mystery – perhaps deliberately – as to what this album is really about, the selection of characterful pieces they perform, and the sensitivity they bring to them, are more than enough of a raison d’être in their own right.”
“Rondeau, meanwhile, revels in the quasi-improvisatory quality of two preludes by Couperin and Jean-Henri d’Anglebert. The harpsichord is undoubtedly the more flamboyant of the two instruments, but even when given free rein there’s sensitivity and just a hint of reserve in his playing; he is evidently at pains never to let the music become brash.”
