Description

German Lute Music of the 18th Century on CD

Johann Sebastian Bach's Adagio and Fugue in G Minor (BWV 1001 and 1000) and Suite in C Minor (BWV 997) are followed by Silvius Leopold Weiss's lesser known (and quite enchanting) Tombeau sur la mort de Mr. Cajetan, Baron D'Hartig and Suite in D Minor. Konrad Junghänel plays on a lute made by Nico Van Der Waals (1976). Germany's Konrad Junghänel identifies himself primarily as a lutenist, and it was in that capacity that he first became known for sheer virtuosity combined with mastery of style and ornamentation technique. His lute repertory, centered on the German Baroque standards of Silvius Leopold Weiss (whose complete works he has recorded to critical and prize-committee acclaim) and J.S. Bach, numbers some 100 pieces.
