Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The nine ricercares by Francesco Spinacino hold primal importance in the repertory, because they come from the very first books of lute music published by Ottavio Petrucci (Venice, 1507). His music shows a variety of improvisatory-sounding scales that function as the sinew holding together melodic motives and chords. The inner workings of the lutenist's art are even more obvious in Francesco da Milano's Ricercares 33 and 34. The repetition of short motives in various ranges creates an echo effect - a technique borrowed from contemporary vocal polyphonists like Josquin des Prez. What one learns from listening is that lute virtuosity in this period was tied to the illusion of part music performed on a single instrument. They're delightful pieces, deftly performed by Peter Croton. Notes are in English.

The famous Swiss-American lute player Peter Croton plays on his Carpe Diem debut a collection of recercares and fantasias by the two Italian lutenist-composers Francesco spinacino & Francesco da Milano. The 15th century saw the lute emerge as a solo instrument, and the terms ricercar and fantasia were used for works created without preexisting models. The ability to improvise was apparently as widespread then as it is in jazz today. Peter Croton, also known for his contemporary and jazz-related musical projects, explores this beautiful musical world with the heart of a true improvisor, free of limiting preconceptions and sparkling with creativity.
