Iestyn Davies & Jupiter Ensemble
George Frideric Handel. English oratorio arias
Iestyn Davies (countertenor, UK)
Jupiter Ensemble (France)
Ensemble’s artistic director Thomas Dunford (archlute)
The Jupiter Ensemble was born out of Thomas Dunford’s idea of bringing together the most outstanding musicians of his time and circle. Playing together on a regular basis has given those young soloists a common understanding of music and the courage to express themselves with passion, energy and freedom, no matter the repertoire. The Gramophone magazine praised Jupiter’s first CD ‘Vivaldi’ (2019) as one of the best Vivaldi’s recordings ever.
