Paul O’Dette’s newly recorded personal selection of favourite pieces from the pinnacle of lute repertoire by 'the Liszt of the lute'. Many of these pieces are melancholy but consistently lovely, enhanced by Paul O'Dette's new lute: a 2008 8-course by Malcolm Prior, after Sixtus Rauwolf, Augsburg 1590. O'Dette's 5-cd set of John Dowland was awarded no less than 5 Diaspasons and is due for reissue in the near future. His next release will be of Giovanni Antonio Terzi [1580-1620] provisionally titled 'Unplayable chords'.

“The prospect of a Nigel North set is something to drool over, and this first installment doesn't disappoint. Pre-eminently the lutenist's lutenist, North is steeped in the music - and technically beyond reproach. Can anyone slip the colourist gears as smoothly? Every opening chord makes you sit up and pay attention; lazy listening is never an option.” BBC Music Magazine *****

“A collector’s item” The Times

“…Nigel North… has organised his programme into alternative groups of dancelike pieces, often bearing the dedicatee's name, and free-form works of an often profound nature, including the seven superb Fantasies. The resultant light and shade, the changing moods and the robustness of much of the writing is perfectly mirrored in North's own deployment of tone, ornamentation and shifting emphases. This is mature playing of real depth.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2006

Joachim Held is currently one of the best lute players in the world and received the 2006 Echo Klassik Prize for his CD Delightful Lute-Pleasure (HAEN98232). In the 16th and 17th centuries the concept of “melancholy” was seen as a deeply poetic element of soaring ecstasy with the power to inspire even better deeds. Held performs works by Holborne, Dowland, Byrd, Johnson and Cutting.

“Held's interpretations are steady but subtly phrased, sparingly ornamented and never indulge in extremes of tempo or rubato. With this recording Held offers us fresh insights into the soundscape of private music-making in the late Elizabethan era.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2010

Includes premiere recordings of MacGregor's arrangements of works by Dowland, Gismonti and Piazzolla.

“The programme itself bears MacGregor's stamp, combining tradition with innovation. Her Bach concerto gives Gould a run for his money in the wilful stakes, never letting us forget the piano's percussive qualities...MacGregor clearly relishes the Piazzolla works, which play to her strengths, visceral effect and drama to the fore” Gramophone Magazine, April 2010

Stay time awhile thy flying

The lowest trees have tops

Praise blindness, eyes, for seeing is deceit

Julian Bream (lute & guitar), Edith Steinbauer (treble viol), Beatrice Reichert (alto & tenor viol), Frieda Litschauer (tenor viol), Ernst Knava (bass viol) & Elizabeth Osborn (soprano)

The Golden Age Singers, Margaret Field-Hyde

The set comprises Bream’s solo Dowland LP (1954) – which was his debüt solo recording, played on lute - and his solo Bach LP (1956), both originally recorded on the Westminster label and justly celebrated at the time. Here they are brought together with a wide selection of Dowland ayres, sung by The Golden Age Singers with Bream’s lute accompaniment. The CD booklet has a newly commissioned note by Tully Potter, a personal friend of Julian Bream, and includes reproductions of the original LP covers, LP labels and photos of the artists.

“…Bream's genius transcends all. Whether it's in the astonishing intensity of Dowland's Melancholy Galliard and Forlorn Hope Fancy or in the finely proportioned sense of pace and drama in Bach's Chaconne, the impression is ultimately of a meeting of equals.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2008

Whether gay or sad, simple or complex, John Dowland’s music has the power to move us four centuries after its composition. This wide-ranging anthology explores all aspects of the work of England’s greatest songwriter and lutenist, performed by leading exponents of his art today.

“The collection might have sounded like a bit of a hotchpotch were it not for the fact that Dowland's celebrated Lachrimae pavans are woven through the sequence, giving the whole a sense of unity and shape. All in all, it makes a nostalgic and inspiring testimony to Dowland's versatility.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2007 ****
