Jean Rondeau
Complete Works of Louis Couperin

Subtitles in English

Since Jean Rondeau’s debut album almost a decade ago, he’s tried to take his listeners on a vast journey: all the way from the beginnings of harpsichord music in the 16th century to the very limits of what harpsichord can be in the 21st century. Along the way, he’s highlighted the infinities of Bach, the virtuosity of Scarlatti, the sublime grace of Bull and Byrd, and everything and everywhere in between and beyond.

With his tenth album with Erato (Warner Classics), Jean will be recording the complete works of Louis Couperin: nearly ten hours of music on seven discs, recorded on multiple instruments (including some of the preeminent antique organs and harpsichords in Europe) in several countries, altogether the product of years of work and intense musicological research. The release of the album in late 2025 will celebrate Couperin’s 400th birthday (1626–2026).

Over the course of five weeks, more than 130 music lovers from around the world contributed over USD $30,000 to support Jean’s project on Kickstarter.

While the Kickstarter campaign has ended, you still have the unique opportunity to own a piece of Jean’s career-defining project by giving directly to his ongoing fundraising campaign.
