American musicologist Douglas Alton Smith claims that Sylvius Leopold Weiss should be appreciated to the same degree as G.P. Telemann, F. Couperin, and D. Scarlatti, as one of the most important composers of the late baroque era. Not only was Weiss one of the most prolific lute composers of all time; his music was some of the best to come from Germany in that period. Analyzing the many pieces he wrote for baroque lute (more than 500), we can divide his output into two main parts- the first, early period (until 1725) and the second, mature phase. His London manuscript contains early works, as does the manuscript Weiss a Roma, while the manuscript from Dresden contains the mature works. This new release presents the premiere recording of the Paris manuscript, preserved in the Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris by S.L. Weiss and “Tomba” by Georg Gebel, performed by baroque lutenist Edicole Grevi.
