5.0 out of 5 stars Masterly pleasure... 30 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A new recording by the English lute master Nigel North is always a pleasure, and this superb interpretation of some of the early works of S.L. Weiss is a joy to listen to. Beautiful sound, virtuoso playing of the highest order, and wonderful, youthful music by the greatest composer for the lute of any time...an essential CD for all lute lovers...and for those who do not yet know the joys of the lute and its music...buy it! You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Emotional Recording of Weiss Works 16 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nigel North has interpreted these works in a modern manner that really excels at infusing gentle emotions into the music. Very enjoyable recording that has excellent sound quality, I can say that I could not hear any excessive squealing (and I do listen to this on a good quality hi-fi) but there will always be some noise from the frets with any lute or guitar. If you like Weiss, or like lute music at all and wish try Weiss I can thoroughly recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance 30 Nov 2010
By Matuka
Format:Audio CD
Beautiful recording once again of one of the worlds best lute-players. It's a pity the recording contains some high squealing sounds in some tracks (eg track 7), like the sound of a squeaking door. But an excellent performance nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonder 27 Jun 2013
By cerrig
Format:Audio CD
I know little of the lute, rather more of the guitar perhaps. But even I can tell that this is playing of the very highest order. Weiss is also new to me (if you can't exhibit your ignorance in an Amazon review, where can you?)but this disc is a revelation. Such grace. And if the mind wanders (as it does, it seems to be its job) then firmly but gently a phrase, an unexpected cadence, a particularly elegant ornament, will freeze it mid-step, as it were, and turn it back to the heart of the music.

So if, as someone has already written but if you can't repeat what's already been said in an Amazon review, where can you? like me you have little acquaintance with lute music, may I suggest that you treat yourself. If you love music and need it, rather than the noise that surrounds it, this is surely a disc for you. A good friend made me a present of this recording, and for that I look to repay him with something of equivalent delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! I'd Almost Forgotten How Good a Lutenist ... 20 Feb 2012
By Giordano Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
... Nigel North is! I first heard him play a couple decades ago at a conclave of the Lute Society of America. Then I heard him quite a lot when we were on the same faculty at several music workshops. Since January 1999, he has been Professor of Lute at the Early Music Institute, Indiana University, Bloomington in the USA, and I've been many other places but never there. Recently, however, he's been playing with the ensemble Magnificat and I had the thrill of hearing him electrify a crowd with solo lute fantasies by the Italian composer Piccinini. Now I'm making up for lost time by revisiting his CDs of Bach, Weiss, and the Elizabethan lute composers.

Silvius Leopold Weiss (1687 - 1750) was widely acclaimed as the finest lutenist of his era. I never served on a faculty with him -- I'm not quite that old -- but I have heard his music performed by many of the best lutenists of our era. In his special genre, Weiss was a sublime composer, the peer of Bach, whom he knew and "jammed" with. Playing Weiss authoritatively is the pinnacle of artistry for any lutenist. Nigel North, to my ears, shares the pinnacle with Jakob Lindberg. It's my Heart that trembles with Pleasure at this performance.

What are the criteria for fine lute playing? Weiss's contemporaries would have answered that the ability to deceive the listener with a "sustained" quality of phrasing was the mark of excellence, assuming total mastery of basic technique. The sound made by a plucked lute string dies almost instantly; to create the illusion of a fluid legato is indeed an art, and it depends mostly on touch. One should hear the note - the pitch and timbre of the note - without hearing the snap of the finger-tip on the string. Nigel North has that sort of touch, as do all of my favorite lutenists.
