Kapsberger - Intavolatura di chitarrone - Nordberg

Rating: 5/5

A very fine recording

I like this disc very much. There are some great recordings of Kapsberger by giants of the instrument like Paul O’Dette and Jakob Lindberg; I think this stands well beside them.

Jonas Nordberg plays on a wonderful-sounding citarrone, giving Kapsberger’s music a real depth and resonance. He is a fine player with quite a refined, delicate approach which works extremely well much of the time, although there are moments when a little more oomph and attack might help – but that’s just a personal feeling, really. Overall, it’s an excellently played and beautiful-sounding disc of very fine early Baroque music, with the top-quality recording one expects from BIS. Very warmly recommended.
