Artist of the month


Jadran Duncumb


With his outstanding technique and sensitive musicianship Jadran Duncumb is one of today’s leading lutenists. BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist and winner of 1st prize at the international "Maurizio Pratola" lute competition, he rediscovers the cornerstones of the lute repertoire completely afresh. Jadran is the principal lute player of Ensemble Diderot and collaborates as director and soloist with numerous other baroque ensembles. Since 2013 he records for Audax Records. His solo album with works by J.S. Bach was awarded with a Diapason d'Or in May 2021.

“The result is breathtaking: these pages have rarely sounded so good. What a sense of dynamics, what a variety of articulations! Duncumb invites us to rediscover the possibilities of the baroque lute. Fascinating.” DIAPASON

Cities series

A plaudit-garnering series that throws fresh angles on
periods we thought we all knew.  GRAMOPHONE
Ensemble Diderot prides itself on its pioneering exploration of the Baroque trio sonata repertoire, carrying out extensive research in libraries across Europe to unearth and study significant but previously unknown Baroque works. In particular with their award-winning ‘Cities’ series, the four musicians are dedicated to shining new light on the rich music-making of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, providing historical and  musicological insights into how music travelled and developed across major European cities at the time.
The first four albums of the series present important repertoire cornerstones alongside hidden gems from the earliest French and English trio sonatas through to late baroque and gallant music from Germany. A fascinating new cartography of baroque Europe as well as a plea for open borders and artistic exchange.
