Notes & Reviews:

Thanks to the incomparable Ronn McFarlane and other pioneers, the twentieth-century revival of the lute has been so thorough that it is now difficult to remember what a "distant shore" the instrument seemed to musicians of a few generations ago. Like the viola da gamba or the harpsichord, here was an instrument - and a repertoire, with its unique set of performance practices - that was all but dead for centuries and that had to be reconstructed from the ground up. This well-balanced recital of late-Baroque lute music, performed on an eleven-course 1971 instrument built by Andrew Rutherford, includes the Suite in E major, BWV1006a by J.S. Bach.
