VINEYARD PARTNER OF THE EVENING
Special Event evening
Thomas Dunford & Jean Rondeau
Archilute and Harpsichord
Harpsichordist Jean Rondeau and lutenist Thomas Dunford (Ensemble Jupiter) unite their talents for an exceptional album dedicated to the great composers of the French Baroque (Couperin, Rameau, Charpentier, Forqueray, Marais, D'Anglebert, De Visée), recorded in the sublime acoustics of the Corneille Chapel in Rouen.
"We embark on an incantatory dance but devoid of all mechanics so that the musical phrase becomes the organ itself. This is our work, our obsession! We are trying here to fascinate people with the undertow of repetition and not to convince by the verb. We are ruminants of gesture-passion, buccaneers of joy.
- Thomas Dunford & Jean Rondeau
