Galanterie Music for Lute by Slyvius Leopold Weiss, Vol.3

£12.00

Nigel North continues his series of iconic lute recordings on BGS Records with the third volume in his series of works by Sylvius Leopold Weiss. Galanterie charts music for 13-course lute thought to have been composed between 1720 and 1730, whilst Weiss was employed as a royal chamber musician for the Elector August II of Saxony.

Nigel North has assembled this programme of three sonatas, described by one of Weiss’s contemporaries as being: “… so filled with such ingenious, charming, well-connected ideas that one beautiful and exceptional thought accompanies another … His playing consists of alternation between forcefulness and delicacy, as the music demands, and his concerti as well as his suites charm the ear extraordinarily.”
