4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, if not great, lute music 7 Dec 2013
By Sid Nuncius HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is an enjoyable disc of Austrian Baroque lute music by Wolff Jacob Lauffensteiner and Johann Georg Weichenberger, two composers born in 1676. This is the first I have heard of either composer and their music is very enjoyable, although perhaps not quite in the first rank of lute music of the period. They are rough contemporaries of Weiss, a true German master of lute composition and although their style is similar, for me neither has quite the depth and invention of Weiss.

The pieces here are all Partitas with movements based upon different dance rhythms and Miguel Yisrael plays them very well. He has a very good technique, bringing out the different characters of the movements and giving them each a distinct feel. The spirit of Hopkinson Smith, Yisrael's teacher, is discernible here in the smooth phrasing and beautiful tone he produces and I think he is a very fine lutenist.

The quality of the music means that I don't find this disc as satisfying as the excellent recordings of Weiss by Jakob Lindberg (e.g Weiss: Lute Sonatas and Short Pieces) and Robert Barto (e.g. Weiss: Lute Sonatas Volume 11 (Sonatas Nos. 30, 39 & 96) (Naxos: 8.572680)) which are in a similar style, and if you're just looking for a disc of first-rate baroque lute music I'd recommend one of them first. However, it's good to have some music by these two composers available and this is certainly recommendable as a well-played programme of very pleasant music.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first Yisreal CD 3 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
CD arrived in time and in good condition
It is a nice introduction to the music composed by Lauffensteiner & Weichenberg
Although I have a good number of Lute CD's I was not really acquainted with the music of these composers.
M.Yisrael plays the lute well

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning 17 Nov 2013
By myrmex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Out of the 200 or so lute cds i have this would easily be in the top ten along with Hopkinson Smith's memorable recodings of the French Baroque repertoire. Like his teacher, this young lutenist stands out for the delicacy of his touch and his ability to concentrate even very slow music into a telling musical statement. This cd should not be missed and lets hope for more recordings by Miguel soon.
