About this Recording

WEISS, S.L.: Lute Sonatas, Vol. 8 (Barto) - Nos. 19, 34, 36

When Sylvius Leopold Weiss died (in 1750, the year of Bach’s death), he was eulogised as Europe’s greatest lutenist and one of Germany’s best musicians. This series devoted to his complete lute works continues with three fine sonatas in the form of dance suites. They range in style from the grandeur of the Allemande which opens Sonata No. 36, to the unbroken melody in the Allemande of Sonata No. 19 and the fiery Gigue which concludes Sonata No. 34, perhaps his best known Sonata. As ever, Weiss makes full and virtuosic use of the sonority of the lute.
