Weiss, S: Lute Sonata No. 52 in C Minor
This series devoted to his complete lute works continues with the large-scale Sonata No. 52. Thought to be a late work of the composer’s full maturity, this Sonata is notable for its extended movements and wide use of adventurous chromaticism and modulation.
Lute Sonata No. 32 in F major
The Sonata No. 32 makes much use of the extra low notes characteristic of the enlarged thirteen-course lute introduced around 1717.
Lute Sonata No. 94 in G minor
In the Sonata No. 94 Weiss seems consciously to be experimenting in a style more akin to that of the following generation.
