Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Though little is known of Marco Dall'Aquila(1480-1544), he undoubtedly lived and composed during a period in which lute technique graduated from monodic to polyphonic plectrum use. Dall'Aquila's music acts as a bridge between these two styles. This repertoire conjures up the court and palace atmosphere in which this stately and noble music must have resounded. Lutenist Sandro Volta is an expert in his field with numerous publications to his name. These 2013 recordings are world-premieres.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
I find these works fascinating because they sound like standard Renaissance lute music, not medieval music. The notes remark that Dall'Aquila constantly tried, over the 40 years or so he wrote music, to "achieve a more complex, mature, and elevated idiom for the lute, 'a most noble instrument suited to different gentlemen', as he himself described it". Mr Volta renders these short pieces with energetic grace. You will find this very pleasant listening for a winter evening.
