John Donne wrote »No man is an island, entire of itself«, yet sometimes we are so »maddened« by love or pain that we lock ourselves into the riches of our interiors. The top violinist and the global sensation that is his partner found those riches, captured in the music by Purcell’s contemporaries – sometimes melancholic and odd, sometimes exuberantly capricious, always true to life. And they want to share those riches, because when you share music, you might be alone at times, but you are never lonely.
