Baroque Festival

Lea Desandre, Thomas Dunford and the Jupiter Ensemble

He is considered the “Eric Clapton of the lute”: Thomas Dunford is only 32 years old, but he is already one of the stars of early music. Born in Paris, he studied with such prominent artists as William Christie, Philippe Herreweghe and Jordi Savall. To carry on their legacy, he founded the Jupiter Ensemble in 2018, whose members also include the young mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre. During our Baroque weekend, the enthusiastic newcomers explore the wide spectrum of European music from the 17th and 18th centuries.
