Of Grace And Elegance: Jean Rondeau, Harpsichord & Chiu Tan Ching, Zheng

Of Grace and Elegance: Jean Rondeau, harpsichord & Chiu Tan Ching, zheng



This event is part of Rondeau’s MUSE Artist-in-Residence programme


Despite their distinct sounds and cultural backgrounds, the harpsichord and the zheng represented subtlety and sublimity of their respective cultures before modernity, often evoking the graceful and elegant poses of court dance or music-making. What chemistry would be sparked if the pair were featured together, each employing its own scale system and timbre? In this contemporary and experimental duet, we will see Jean Rondeau and Chiu Tan Ching break cultural boundaries to create a unique musical bonding with one of the most unique instrumental line-ups!
