Notes and Editorial Reviews

Almost nothing is known about François Dufaut (ca.1604 - ca.1672): we neither know when and where he was born nor do we know the time and place of his demise. Over the centuries, his reputation as a lutenist, who has also composed and developed an independent style, has been maintained. André Henrich sets out to search for this mysterious figure in music history. André Henrich was born in Oberwesel/Germany. In 2000 he graduated from the Musikhochschule in Cologne, where he had studied with Konrad Junghänel. He now performs internationally as a soloist and continuo player on the lute, the theorbo and the baroque guitar. He currently teaches lute and theorbo at the conservatory of Saint-Maur-des-Fosses.
