This is early music for the twenty-first century.
When the four French musicians of Nevermind met while studying in Paris, a shared passion for the Baroque and traditional chamber music quickly blossomed into an ambitious plan. Armed with flute, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord, they set about rewriting the rulebook on period-instrument concerts and throwing open the windows to clear the dust from some of history’s most impressive music.
With a thoroughly engaging mix of virtuoso expertise and unpretentious charm, in just a few years Nevermind has had audiences across Europe and the US pricking up their ears. Their first album Conversations drew fresh attention to the often overlooked French composers Jean-Baptiste Quentin and Louis-Gabriel Guillemain, while live performances continue to showcase their youthful relish for fine music
This will be the group’s Australian debut and we’re confident it will be the beginning of a long love affair.
