The love and passion for early music led Anna Besson, Louis Creac'h, Robin Pharo and Jean Rondeau to create the group Nevermind in 2013. Together they present the traditional repertoire of a quartet (flute, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord) of the 17th and 18th centuries to a wider and more varied audience. Their concerts demonstrate their passion and true pleasure for performance, with amazing complicity and sincere collaboration.
In 2014, Nevermind won the third prize and the special prize of the Van Wassenaer Competition in Utrecht. The ensemble has played throughout France and Europe, as well as in the United States, the Boston Early Music Festival and the prominent Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio. They have also traveled and performed in Canada, Iceland and Russia, especially in St. Petersburg and the Sverdlovsk Philharmonic Concert Hall in Yekaterinburg.
They have performed in such prestigious venues as the Louvre Auditorium, the Salle Cortot and the Champs Elysées Theater in Paris, as well as the Hong Kong City Hall, the Warsaw Philharmonic, the Hamburg Philharmonic, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam, the Concertgeboew in Bruges, the BOZAR in Brussels and the LSO St. Luke's and the Barbican, both in London. Highlights of the 2019-2020 season included a successful tour in Australia and other performances at the Bel-Air Clavier Festival and Hong Kong.
In 2016, Alpha / Outhere released their first album, Conversations, with music by French composers of the first half of the 18th century such as Jean-Baptiste Quentin and Louis-Gabriel Guillemain. The second album, Quatuors Parisiens, is dedicated to Telemann and was published in 2017 with the same label.
The quartet delved into the world of contemporary music for the first time in 2019 and published La Harpe de David, with works composed by Philippe Hersant especially for Nevermind. Their third album is currently being recorded with the Alpha / Outhere label and includes works dedicated to the quartets of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
