'Simply the best recording of lute music I have had the pleasure of listening to.' Gramophone

'...full of insights, always delivered in that calm, almost deliberate way of his, with a lustrous tone of great beauty.' Classical Guitar

 

The programme opens with Weiss' 'L'infidèle' Sonata, the work which inspired North to play the D minor tuned eighteenth-century lute. Weiss was undoubtedly the greatest lutenist-composer of his time; and Tombeau sur la mort de M. Comte de Logy is perhaps his most well-known piece and has been widely performed. The Prelude, Fantasia and Fugue in C major pay tribute to Weiss' skill as an improviser and demonstrate a truly idiomatic lute style. Transcription has long been a popular tool for both composers and performers; here both Bach and North contribute to an innovative reworking of what was originally a Vivaldi violin concerto. Bach's Chaconne in the lute's 'home' key of D minor adapts perfectly to the instrument; so successful was North's transcription that he went on to transcribe Bach's complete music for solo cello and violin.
