^^^ Definitely recommended. I just picked this up 2 days a go, had a listen, and haven't posted because I'd simply be verbally gushing. Lindberg is a master, I like the compositions, which are varied and are also mostly new to me (except the Weiss). And the sound of the lute is something I am unable to describe yet, other than to say it is beautiful.

 

Thanks for posting this.

You are most welcome, the pleasure is mine. It's a delight in so many ways. Hearing such a gifted artist play this music on such a historic instrument and recorded so well. Another treat is the inclusion of a rarely recorded piece by Pachelbel. I discovered an album in the early '70s - "The Baroque Lute" by Walter Gerwig. It was instrumental in my life-long love of the lute and it's music.  The Nonesuch cover depicts an era lost!

Glad to share the joy...

No polka and considerably more refined Germanic music for male voices than my previous album by the official ambassadors of New Ulm, MN.  The monkish bells and austere environment conducive to chants and grunts in the opener gave way to a rapt performance that I'm having a hard time putting in the proper light within a brief description.  Locally there are more than a few rightfully international recognized college and professional choirs so this has some basis.  They are among the best within their subset of singing that I've heard recorded (or broadcast).

Shiny Telarc discs with about as close to unique orchestra specific style as exists anymore.  Donanyi's geographically relevant view distant from the action and Previn's exemplary outing with the RPO of a 5th symphony I mention with some attempt at tact.  I have also finished 'Le nozze di Figaro' while following along with the vocal score.  Wtfplayer running on a dedicated machine has brought such new life into my listening I'm doing fresh scans of old discs into PCM.

Boccherini, Vivaldi & Bach: Cello Concertos. Antonio Janigro and the Solisti di Zagreb. Musicologically incorrect performances on modern instruments with judicious amount of vibrato. Engaging and delightful.

 

Very good 1960 recorded sound from a 24/96 HDTapeTransfers download. (And garish cover art).

I'm listening to it on Tidal and I agree, a very nice performance and recording.

Wow

Dreams and Daggers

Cécile McLorin Salvant's new album. Live at Village Vanguard.

A great trio backing her including Aaron Diehl with a string quartet at times.

Amazing reworking of the standards and more.

Wonderful.  I've enjoyed each of her albums, but this live (double) album is the bee's knees!

There is a review of this on Amazon by a “Caveat Auditor” which caught my attention for its length and apparent erudition. He or she speaks of matters of which I am poorly informed and unable to critically appraise.

I thought to mention it here for those whose knowledge of early music scholarship is much richer than my humble grasp of such matters.

Slowly overcoming instinct to shunt 'HRH The Prince Of Wales'collection into the bin every time I see the cover of an album.  Viewed as a budget box the performances are quite acceptable though.  Even if too much attention was given it to actually believe performances or packaging was thrown together on the cheap.
