In Renaissance Europe, the lute was the king of instruments, inspiring some of the period’s greatest works. The guitar in Hispanic and Latin countries is also endowed with a line of musicians whose mastery continues to ensure a place in our cultural fabric for this most personal of instruments.
Alan Rinehart’s recording, The Golden Century: Italian lute music of the 16th century, comprises the music of the three generations of Italian composer/performers, tracing lute music in its development from dance, polyphonic and popular roots to a repertoire of stylized expressive abstract composition, music of extraordinary originality, rich harmony and exquisite detail.
One of Rinehart’s other recordings, Musical Banquet, was conceived of as the musical equivalent to a culinary banquet. Taking the dictionary definition of banquet (‘an elaborate or extensive feast”) as a starting point, the works presented follow a path through musical styles as one would enjoy a fine meal. A classic appetizer sets the ‘meal’ off, followed by an ‘antipasto’, two courses of ‘chef’s specials’ each full of many colours and ‘flavours’, a lighter dessert course and a rousing finale to send the listener home with a smile.
