Perhaps it takes a producer with the guitar skills of Agustín Maruri to realize an album of lute music so wonderfully performed as here by Konstantin Shenikov. This is certainly one for a lute lover’s collection. And you needn’t have a capo on the third fret in order to enjoy it!
Ann has been particularly enjoying Konstantin Shenikov on lute, whom she finds very skillful and very deliberate in his presentation of these dance tunes by various Renaissance composers, including Cutting, Dowland, Ferrabosco, Holborne, Capriola and Anonymous. These are all composers whom I enjoy as well.
I find Shenikov’s playing to be technically very fine, but for my preferences there is yet more to be found in these pieces than Shernikov provides. Ann disagrees and finds his presentation of the pieces eminently enjoyable and very appropriate for dance, the intended purpose for many.
Try them, you may like them.
