Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 06, 2023, 08:09:03 AMIs this one of the recordings from that CD? If so, I quite liked what I heard. Beautiful looking instrument too; I wonder how old it is?PD
Quote from: Mandryka on January 08, 2018, 09:40:55 PMWhen I first started to listen to classical music I remember a friend saying to me that the sign of a great musician is that he can play silence. (We were talking about the first movement of Klemperer's Brahms 1!)If that's right, then Toyohiko Satoh proves himself to be a great musician in this recording of music by Esaias Reusner. For once this music does not purr contentedly and sleepily in the background, it jolts gently. And between every phrase is a vision of eternity - just enough silence to reflect on the sound of one hand clapping. I don't think it's racist to say that Satoh's Reusner is Zen. And it's Zen like a Japanese garden too: minimal, controlled, expressive. The music is laid bare, it's essence is exposed . Satoh resolves paradoxes: he is both dancing and contemplative at the same time. Dances for the soul. The instruments is old (1611) and fabulous and works in the music. Reusner, by the way, is very like Froberger I'd say. And Satoh's lute would appeal to people who have a predilection for harpsichord. What I'm trying to say is that this is a recording harpsichordphile lutophobes may like.

Quote from: Mandryka on July 01, 2021, 08:22:32 AMThe nice thing about the Rainer Cd is that the music was completely unknown until Eisenhardt found it, and I think that sense of joy in discovery, of being a pioneer, helps him to make something special in the performances. There's a very similar backstory about Hubert Hoffmann's discovery of Ferdinand Fischer's music, and his subsequent recording of it. Strongly recommended listening to Hubert Hoffmann's extraordinarily well recorded CD of a book of music found in Klosternneuberg - very much worth seeking out and relishing the sound and indeed the music

Quote from: Basil on February 08, 2024, 07:58:04 PMRegarding Diego Cantalupi's Kapsberger recording:The information posted here is incorrect. I hope it hasn't harmed sales of the recording. Mr. Cantalupi's notes go into some detail as to the chitarrone used (a copy of a 1647 instrument preserved in the Palazzo d'Arco in Mantua), including mention of the eighteen courses of strings, six of which are stopped and doubled and the remaining twelve fixed to a second peg box. The notes tell us that this is exactly the kind of instrument Kapsberger himself said was needed for this music. I consider this CD to be one of the very best Kapsberger chitarrone recordings I have heard, and it was a bit of a shock to see it being wrongly described here as a guitar recording.
