Notes and Editorial Reviews
Silvius Leopold Weiss was without doubt one of the most important players and composers for the lute, he wrote an immense oeuvre for his instrument, which is still frequently played today.
His flute sonatas have only survived in a lute tabulatura (the “London Manuscript”), and were reconstructed, extracting the solo flute part from the score by the artists, flutist Stefano Sabene and lutenist Mario d’Agosto. The result is beautiful: flute cantilenas against the rich continuo of the lute, a valuable addition to the repertoire!
The album opens with a slightly more austere sonata by his brother, Johann Sigismund Weiss.
The booklet contains a detailed description of the reconstruction process, liner notes and artist
biographies. Read less
