Some new recordings to look out for Lute lovers. Barto's vol 10 in the Weiss series is out Jan 26. I am particularly looking forward to hearing his Sonata No. 40 from the Dresden manuscript. A new fascimile of this manuscript is now available so maybe some new interesting recordings will arise from this.
Also this little beauty should be in any lute lovers collection (if you don't have these pieces by Hoppy elsewhere)
Hopkinson Smith on Naive records. As I'm sure you all know, Hopkinson Smith is a legend so this is a nice release. If you haven't already got it his recent Da Milano is also superb
It's such a shame that so many of his classic releases on Astree have never been re-released by Naive, a real treasure trove of excellent lute and vihuela recordings
