DOWLAND Complete Lute Music Jakob Lindberg (lt) BRILLIANT 93698 (4 CDs: 260:38)


When, close to a decade ago, I received the five-disc “Complete Lute Works” of Dowland played by Paul O’Dette, I said to myself this beautifully played, exquisite sounding collection is all one would ever need. Perhaps, but then I listened again to a ravishing LP of Dowland as played by Julian Bream, and remembered how touching, how lyrical, and warmly intimate Bream was at his best. Now, Jakob Lindberg’s collection, recorded Read more for BIS and issued as a box by Brilliant Classics, must also be considered. The repertoire is slightly narrower than was O’Dette’s, who also included nine numbers now thought to be written or set by people other than John Dowland. Lindberg’s sound, as least as it is recorded, is dryer than O’Dette’s. On certain numbers, such as Mrs Fleetwood’s Paven, O’Dette plays an orpharion, which sounds deeper and richer than the more normal eight-course lute. That said, the stately playing of Mrs Fleetwood by Lindberg seems just as right in a different way. Lindberg is restrained perhaps, even in this world of lutenists, but creates his own tension and his own lyricism. All the well-known works are here, and dozens of lesser-known pieces. I believe this four-disc set is considerably less expensive than the O’Dette is. I marginally prefer the O’Dette still, but this new box is certainly a reasonable, wholly satisfying alternative.

FANARE: Michael Ullman




Jakob Lindberg is a quite convincing and eloquent interpreter. His phrasing and articulation are immaculate, and his ornamentation stylish and tasteful. The microphones have been put quite close to the player ... it is as if he plays just for you.
