Jupiter Ensemble with Lea Desandre

Chamber Music
Williams Center for the Arts
Friday, Mar 31, 2023 at 8:00 PM (ET) to Friday, Mar 31, 2023 at 9:30 PM (ET)

Founded in 2018 by lutenist Thomas Dunford, France’s Jupiter Ensemble has rapidly captured acclaim in the early music firmament. This international assembly of soloists brings the repertoire fully alive with energy and freedom in their playing. 

Drawing from the ensemble’s award-winning 2019 debut recording Vivaldi, Jupiter performs arias of jealousy, despair, and love, punctuated by concerti for lute, violin, and bassoon—music that illuminates the composer’s sundry sensations, from the sorrowful to the valiant. 

At the center, rising opera star Lea Desandre beguiles and ignites with a clarion voice and uncommonly beautiful technique. 

Program: Vivaldi / “Vedrò con mio diletto,” Il Giustino, / “Armatae face et anguibus” and “Veni, veni me sequere fida,” Juditha triumphans, RV 644 / “Cum dederit,” Nisi Dominus / Lute Concerto in D major RV 93 / “Gelido in ogni vena,” Il Farnace, RV 711 / Lute concerto in C major RV 82 / “Gelosia, tu già rendi l’alma mia,” Ottone in Villa, RV 729 / Cello Concerto in G minor RV 416 / “Mentre dormi, ”L’Olimpiade / “Agitata da due venti,” La Griselda

The concert is preceded by a free 7:00 discussion, led by Anthony Cummings, Eugene H. Clapp II '36 and Maud Millicent Clapp Professor of Music.
