This is a cracking disc. It’s a collection of Baroque lute pieces by three of the finest composers for the instrument, all excellently played.
The music itself is a delight. Bach, Weiss and Baron were all great composers for the lute and this forms a pleasingly varied collection of solo pieces and duets with recorder and with harpsichord, all of which work excellently here. This is due to the fine playing of the excellent musicians; Wolf is a very fine lutenist, I already love Dorothee Oberlinger’s work and the others are just as good. If I have a tiny criticism it is that Wolf slightly overdoes the rubato and emphatic phrasing occasionally, but that’s personal taste – overall it’s a pleasure from start to finish. It’s beautifully recorded and I can recommend this disc very warmly.
