Notes & Reviews:

Russian-American lutenist and musicologist Oleg Timofeyev is best known for his pioneering work in the discovery, interpretation, and authentic performance of the repertoire for the 19th and 20th century Russian seven-string guitar. Aside from the compositions of Italian, French, German, and Polish origin, there are also the three virtuosic fantasias by the celebrated English lutenist John Dowland.

Fascinating Lute Music
This disc features pieces from the Lviv Lute Tablature, a manuscript dating from 1553 to the early 17th century, and is a comprehensive collection of Polish Renaissance lute music. The recording features several different instruments, including fiddle, tar, setar, tombak, violin, cello, chalumeau, and the human voice. Mr. Timofeyev, a Fullbright scholar and lutenist, founded Sarmatica (an early music ensemble), and this group of early music specialists works extremely hard together to bring this music to light.

The “Quando lo Pensal Martire Ad Te Saluator Noster” is a fascinating combination of both vocals and several of the intstruments, and is both evocative and captivating. When listening to “Fantasia Bellisima”, you can almost see the beginnings of some of the better known classical guitar repertoire. And in “Susanna Galliard” the evolution of Bach-like trumpet work is evident. There are a number of moments in this recording where this listener felt that he was hearing living history – and this speaks to the caliber of the performance of the musicians.

If you like early music, and enjoy exploring things from the eras before our more “modern” masters, this disc is a fine one to add to your collection. If you are particularly fussy about abso”lute” perfection, then this may be one to pass by. But if this kind of thing is your forte, you will very much enjoy this disc.
