Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Francesco da Milano (dubbed "Il Divino") was celebrated as the preeminent composer of lute music in Renaissance Italy. He was widely published in his lifetime and remained popular across Europe into the 17th century. In this generous selection of his favorite works by the master, Paul O'Dette has grouped these elegant and refined compositions into proto suites, each consisting of a ricercar, a fantasia, and one or more in tabulations of vocal "hits" of the day.

Fanfare
His burnished tone and commonsense approach to period performance are a touchstone for Renaissance and baroque lute...

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
O'Dette captures this music's improvisatory quality with effortless finger work and fluent ornamentation. Above all, he reveals the underlying rhetoric of this vocally inspired music... the lucid recording enhances O'Dette's silky sound - worthy of Il divino himself.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Francesco da Milano (1497-1543) was known to his world as Il Divino, the Divine One. If contemporary accounts are accurate, he was a mesmerizing player, as skilled at improvisation as he was in composition. He was accounted among the greatest of musicians of his day. He is certainly the finest Italian Renaissance composer for lute. Paul O'Dette may be the world's leading Renaissance lutenist (he is also active in Baroque music - I just heard him at the Boston Early Music Festival playing a huge Baroque lute in the continuo of Handel and Charpentier operas). He has been active for decades, with over 120 recordings, many with awards. This recording is typical of his performances - technically assured, with a stylistic expressiveness born of years of intimate acquaintance with the music. In particular, I was struck by his sense of joy. He loves this music and wants his listeners to do so as well.
