Notes & Reviews:

Galant references a style of music that came into being in the 18th century as a cultural counterpoint to the rigor of the preceding era of Baroque. In his debut solo release, the noted Brazilian lutenist, Vinícius Perez devotes himself to this period with works and arrangements by Mozart, Haydn, Karl Kohaut and Christian Gottlieb Scheidler. Recorded within the intimate acoustics of the Swiss Beinwil Monastery, The Galant Lute opens a door to rarely heard repertoire and arrangements.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
I enjoyed this more than I'd expected. This includes some really delightful stuff.

The Haydn is an early work, presented here as a sonata. It has a considerable charm. Karl Kohaut was known in his day as a diplomat, though also as a composer and performer, with eight masses to his credit, along with considerable instrumental music. His sonata is the only truly galant piece here.

The Mozart is actually a later work, originally for three basset horns. Mozart prepared several different instrumentations of the work, and I recently played it as a guitar duo. The solo lute arrangement is by Perez, and it is the best thing here.

This is Brazilian Vinicius Perez's debut recording. He plays beautifully, elegantly, and tastefully, and his arrangements are quite effective. It gave me much pleasure.
