Quote from: Mandryka on August 12, 2021, 09:48:38 AMBe sure to try Massimo Lonardi's Dowland too! Just lovely stuff. Voluptuous, languid. Calm, luxe, volupté.
Quote from: Mandryka on August 08, 2021, 12:29:11 AMFluid, delicate, sweet, relaxed, Massimo Lonardi manages to find the dreamy side of Dowland without completely losing sight of the dance - dances of the soul, not the feet, in Lonardi's hands. The sound is is a bit distant and diffused, but one adjusts.
Quote from: Mandryka on January 21, 2017, 10:02:18 PMThis 1976 recording of music by Denis Gaultier by Hopkinson Smith is (according to Discogs) his first solo release. The tempos are slow and the articulation is jolting and unfluid, at the emotional level everything is somber. The way Smith plays first two suites makes them sound like complex technical exercises to me. The last suite on the CD, which happens to be the last suite in the manuscript, is better. This recording by Hopkinson Smith was made 12 years later in 1988 (Discogs again) and is dedicated to music by Ennemond Gaultier. What a difference! There's a fluid lyricism, a sense of impredictable rhythm, a variety of timbre and attack, a wide range of complex bitter-sweet emotions.
Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on November 14, 2021, 07:23:59 PMAny good recordings of theorbe, other than those of Visee? Thank you.
Quote from: Mandryka on November 14, 2021, 08:05:10 PMYes, 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.

Quote from: bioluminescentsquid on November 20, 2021, 03:13:14 PMI haven't listened to this sort of music in forever, but I remember liking these French theorbo recordings:Imamura de ViséeJosé Miguel Moreno - brighter and less broodingBut Hopkinson Smith is still hard to beat.

Quote from: milk on August 11, 2021, 09:35:57 PM I just find this enthralling. Fentross has two great Dowland recordings.
