Artist of the month
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
