Nuove Musiche

mon 18 jan 2021 19:00 

This hour features new CDs with early music. Today: “The Mad Lover” by Théotime Langlois de Swarte and Thomas Dunford.

The young duo’s new CD features music from 17th century England.

Several meaningful encounters inspired the idea for this CD. Firstly, Théotime Langlois’ discovery of Ground by John Eccles for the comedy “The Mad Lover”, which became the title of the CD. When he met Thomas Dunford, their combined improvisations – especially on ostinato bass – lead to these recordings from February 2019.
