Jupiter by Julien Benhamou
Thomas Dunford, “the Eric Clapton of the lute” (BBC Music Magazine), brings the exuberance and marvelous virtuosity of Vivaldi’s arias and concertos to life alongside Jupiter, the exceptional early music ensemble. Vivaldi was a prolific vocal composer who wrote exhilarating solo works, operas, and oratorios (an extended musical setting of a sacred text). Mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre who “performs arias like a dove from heaven” (The Independent), sings this music that mesmerizes with its expressive power, glorious melodies, and flights of awe-inspiring athleticism. These same qualities also make his dazzling concertos for string instruments some of the Baroque’s most exhilarating music.
