Jean Rondeau, the imaginative young French harpsichordist, describes the Bach family as "one of the great dynasties of western music." Having devoted his first Erato disc, Imagine, to works by the towering Johann Sebastian, he now returns to Bach's world for his third release, Dynastie, which complements concertos by Johann Sebastian with concertos by his three most famous sons, Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emmanuel and Johann Christian.

Rondeau has described JS Bach, who has been part of his life since his childhood, as "daunting like a mighty mountain," but at the same time feels that "his music is so full of humility, so generous, that we have the right and the duty to play it, to share it, and to take the hand that he extends to us."

Jean Rondeau, harpsichord
Sophie Gent, Louis Creah'h, violin
