Product Notes

In founding the Jupiter ensemble, the lutenist Thomas Dunford wanted to 'rediscover the spirit of chamber music in the Baroque repertory. "Jupiter operates in a kind of fraternity, as if we had always known each other... Vivaldi's highly contrasted music demands precisely this natural response - almost like improvisation." Lea Desandre speaks of a "search for color and almost limitless inflections. This music was the "pop" of the eighteenth century." The Franco-Italian mezzo, named 'Révélation lyrique' (vocal newcomer of the year) at the Victoires de la Musique Classique in 2017, performs arias from operas including Il Giustino, Juditha triumphans, Il Farnace and Griselda, as well as the famous 'Cum dederit' from the Nisi Dominus. The programme also includes four concertos, for lute in D major, for lute and violin, for bassoon in G minor and for cello in G minor. In addition to Thomas Dunford on lute, Peter Whelan on bassoon and the cellist Bruno Philippe, also a 'Révélation' at the Victoires de la Musique (2018), this flamboyant programme features Jean Rondeau on harpsichord and organ, Cecilia Bernardini and Louis Creac'h (violins), Jérôme Van Waerbeke (viola) and Douglas Balliett (double bass).
