The King of Instruments in the Age of Bach
John Schneiderman, Baroque Lute
Regarded as the noble instrument of Kings and Queens, the lute, a plucked stringed instrument, rose from its Medieval and Renaissance roots to its greatest development and appreciation during the High Baroque in Germany. Sylvius Leopold Weiss, J. S. Bach's direct contemporary and friend, had command over all other lutenists and lute composers. Our opening offers seductions and guilty pleasures for 13-course High Baroque lute by Bach, Weiss, Adam Falckenhagen and Johann Kropfgans.
A meet-the-artist reception follows for donors and subscribers.
