About This Performance

The Joan & Jonathan Kleinbard Endowed Concert

Since its founding in 2018 by French lutenist Thomas Dunford, the Jupiter Ensemble has quickly established itself as a major force in the European early music scene.

The result is an overwhelming impression of “chamber music delightedly shared among friends” (Gramophone).
