Music Director of Tafelmusik since 1981, Jeanne Lamon has been loved by audiences, and praised by critics in Europe and North America for her virtuosity as a violinist and her brilliant musical leadership. Under her direction, Tafelmusik achieved international stature with over 80 recordings to its name, and with tours to over 350 international cities, including invitations to the most prestigious concert halls and festivals in the world.

Including beloved works such as 'Summer' from The Four Seasons, the Bach Concerto in D minor for two violins and a diverse selection of baroque repertoire, this Special Edition CD was selected by Jeanne Lamon, and features her in virtuoso concertos from 1991 to 2011 for Sony Classical and Analekta – to be released in this special commemorative edition on the Tafelmusik Media label.

This will be Jeanne Lamon’s final year as full-time Music Director of Tafelmusik, and this CD is in celebration of her exceptional 3-decade leadership.

What would a virtuoso violin CD be without one of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons? For me, “Summer” has always been the one I most enjoy playing. It’s stormy, full of nature effects and … well, it reminds me of my favourite time of year! The Bach Concerto for 2 violins has always been my favourite piece of music, my desert island choice. It would be unthinkable not to include it in this CD of my favourites. The fact that this recording is funding our young artist training programmes is incredibly moving to me”, says Jeanne Lamon.

Proceeds from this special limited edition CD on the Tafelmusik Media label will fund Tafelmusik’s extensive emerging artist training programmes.
