Jadran Duncumb

Jadran was first introduced to baroque music by his guitar teacher, Vegard Lund,  at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo. He threw himself into the genre as a student at the Royal College of Music where he had the chance to learn lute and theorbo under Jakob Lindberg as a second instrument.

Apart from regular concerts with the Oslo-based ensemble, Barokkanerne, he focuses mainly on solo and chamber music on the lute and theorbo. His characteristic basso continuo realisations have been praised by Diapason amongst others for their richness, sensitivity and virtuosity. Recent chamber concerts with musicians such as Amandine Beyer, Lina Tur Bonet, Giuliano Carmignola, Rolf Lislevand, Giovanni Sollima, Johannes Pramsohler and Kinga Ujszaszi have taken him all around Europe to halls such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, Auditorium du Louvre, BeethovenHaus Bonn, the Mozart Hall of the Konzerthaus Wien and mountain tarns 2700m above sea level for the Suoni delle Dolomiti festival.

He is a founder of the duo/ensemble Repicco with the violinist Kinga Ujszászi. Their 2017 recording of Italian 17th-century chamber music for violin and theorbo Assassini, assassinati (5 Diapasons) for Ambronay editions was enthusiastically received. He also frequently collaborates with Andrea de Carlo in Ensemble Mare Nostrum.

With Johannes Pramsohler he released Bach & Weiss in autumn 2017, while 2018 saw the release of his first solo disc featuring solo sonatas for baroque lute by Weiss and Hasse – both on the French label Audax Records to excellent reviews. His second solo CD of J. S. Bach’s lute suites should be released on the same label in early 2020. As a solo-recitalist he has performed in halls such as Wigmore Hall in London and the Wiener Konzerthaus.

Jadran graduated cum laude from the Musikhochschule Trossingen in 2016 where he studied basso continuo and lute in the class of Prof. Rolf Lislevand.
