Quote from: Brian on March 29, 2008, 07:12:19 AMI am very busily and happily collecting the Weiss sonatas series on Naxos, featuring the extraordinary performer Robert Barto (I think his custom instrument has 13 strings).
Quote from: erato on March 29, 2008, 08:30:12 AMThis is a stunning recording (about the best sound I've ever heard) of some melodious, finely wrought music:I have it in its previous incarnation on now defunct fnac music.

Quote from: 71 dB on March 30, 2008, 01:13:25 AMI collected the first 5 volumes. Great music performed very well but maybe a bit redundant. I think the first volume could have been enough (there's so much other classical music to be purchased...)
Quote from: Guido on March 29, 2008, 08:59:28 AMI will be watching this thread with great interest. Actually this is real coincidence - I just finished watching this youtube video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuoBpNz6fD8&feature=relatedJulian Bream playing to Stravinsky. It's quite sweet how starstruck he is, and he plays as fantastically as ever.
Quote from: Josquin des Prez on March 29, 2008, 09:04:34 AMI think he's far superior, except for the BWV 997 suite, which is greater then anything i heard from Weiss (when Bach put his mind into something he has no peers). Either way, he's my favored composer for the instrument. As for the aforementioned suite by Bach, i like the recording by Hopkinson Smith. Very clear counterpoint and the sound quality is excellent (always a plus when it comes to "quiet" instruments like the lute).
