about this recording:
While the expert may be familiar with lute music from Kellner and Weiß, the sound of this sonorous baroque lute will surprise him or her in combination with compositions from the "Storm and Stress" period. Sound effects which at that time were only known from the piano, create a very affectionate atmosphere on this intimate instrument.

“All in all the student of Jakob Lindberg gives us a pleasantly unsentimental, fluent interpretation which fully explores the timbre spectre of the baroque lute and offers a lot of variety." (alte musik aktuell, 3/95)
