Johann Sebastian Bach excelled as a player on several instruments, but the lute was not one of them. Even today, this renders his works for solo lute unique in the instrument’s vast repertoire where playing the lute has otherwise been a prerequistite to composing for it. As such, they pose unique challenges and dilemmas for players who want to present this music in the best light. Inspired by his teacher, Rolf Lislevand, Jadran Duncumb eschews the well-thumbed pages of Bach’s own manuscripts and sets out on a different path. Instead, following manuscripts by lutenists contemporary with Bach that take advantage of the instrument’s inherent strengths, he arrives at startling new conclusions.

Jean-Sébastien Bach était un multi-instrumentiste brillant, sans pour autant toucher le luth. Aujourd'hui encore, ce paradoxe rend son œuvre pour luth unique dans le vaste répertoire de cet instrument, resté le terrain de jeu de luthistes virtuoses. Ces pièces solo présentent des défis et des dilemmes sans équivalent aux musiciens désireux de les interpréter avec singularité. Dans la lignée de son professeur, Rolf Lislevand, Jadran Duncumb évite l’écueil d’un simpliste retour aux manuscrits de Bach pour s’engager dans une autre voie. Relisant les manuscrits des luthistes contemporains du Kantor qui exploitent avec modernité les richesses propres à l’instrument, il s’engage dans des choix d’interprétations qui surprendront.
