Mandryka:



Today I listened maybe for for the first time to the John Johnson half of this CD. I think Genov is a bit matter of fact in this music, if he is doing any major poetic embellishment they sounded so natural to me that I hardly noticed. From my point of view that’s a positive in fact!

The real interesting thing is the music, because it’s apparent that John Johnson wrote a sequence of pavans and galliards which is significant and largely unexplored on record at least - like Bull’s pavans and galliards they’re a hidden gem of English music I think.

There’s an enormous contrast between Johnson and Holborne, by the way - and given that they were contemporaries from the same milieu that makes the recording even more valuable.  A glimpse into the variety of styles in English lute music from the mid 16th century.

This is an exquisite performance of this wonderfully sounding music. The playing is of the highest order and the recorded sound is very sympathetic to the music in a good recording.

Any good recordings of theorbe, other than those of Visee? Thank you.

Yes, Fred Jacobs’ Kapsberger CD, and Christopher Wilke’s CD of music by Charles Hurel. Also Simon Linné on Brilliant - some Visée, but not exclusively.


There’s a CD with Jean Marie Poirier and Thierry Meunier called Contreparties which has a lovely duet by Kapsberger on theorbo and guitar - I love it.
