Lute and harp are both beautifully played and recorded in this album. To my ear, these instruments are highly complimentary. Thankful to hear and have Reggio in my collection. Looking forward to future volumes.

This is really a magnificent contribution to the Lute repertoire. Reggio its an amazing composer with an incredible personality although at some moments you can hear Scarlatti or Boccherini.
I never thought the combination of Lute and Harp could be so effective. The sound atmosphere created is very beautiful and the sound of the recording is superb. Young, brilliant performers. Highly recommended.
