Product Description

Product Description

Various Composers Various Composers: Francesco Canova da Milano: Il Divino - Lute Music


There are many favourites, including a rollicking Fantasia... a surprising freedom of rhythm, and Ricercar 8 rolls on gently as if in a dream... a variety of contrasting musical ideas are developed... This excellent CD ends with two fantasias... played with O Dette s characteristic dexterity panache and cleanness of tone. --Stewart Mccoy, Early Music Review October 2013

EDITOR S CHOICE A truly ravishing programme in which Milano s masterly control of drama through register, texture and ornament is fully brought out by O Dette s highly expressive cantabile and colouristic playing. --William Yeoman, Gramophone July 2013

I am a big fan of O'Dette's Dowland and was excited to get his version of one of Dowland's masters - Il Divino. I found both the music (despite its extravagant write-up in the notes) and the sound production very, very disappointing.

Beautiful and relaxing. Perfect delivery. 7 Jan 2014
By Alberto Zimbron Ortiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It is not quite common to find da Milano music. Here is a very beautiful and relaxing compendium of his lute music wonderfully played by O'Dette. I really recommend this play to those who - like me - like hearing non conventional classic music.

One of the worst sound engineers ever 14 Oct 2014
By St. Genaro. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Impossible to hear the music with all the background noise. The delicate sound of the lute requires pristine recording. One of the worst sound engineers ever !!
