5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent disc 8 Sep 2010
By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Weiss, held to be the foremost lutenist of his time, was an almost exact contemporary of Bach and so his time was the last flowering of Baroque lute music. He left a huge and very distinguished legacy of compositions, which really show the true beauty and versatility of the lute. All of the music is full of melodic invention and Weiss's mastery of his instrument is clear from the richness of the harmonic structures. It is fitting that this very fine composer is now receiving rather more attention. He thoroughly deserves it.

I completely agree with M. Walsh's review: Robert Barto's entire series of recordings of Weiss's lute works has been truly excellent and this is maintains the excellent standard set in the first nine volumes. I also have recordings of Weiss by Jakob Lindberg and Nigel North - two modern giants of the lute - and Barto is at least their equal, in my view. His technique is impeccable, leaving him free to concentrate on and interpret what the music is saying. I have gradually accumulated all ten (so far) of the discs in this series and my enjoyment of them has never diminished. Barto brings out all the wonderful interest and variety in Weiss's music and obviously has a real empathy with it and love for it.

The recording is excellent and the sheer sound of the instrument is a joy. All round, this is a wonderful disc and at this price you can't really go wrong. I warmly recommend both this and every other volume in this outstanding series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barto's tenth 10 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All of Barto's CDs of Weiss are fine, but this, including the famous Tombeau, and the magical but less known Sonata 40, is as good as any yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing Lute Music 15 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
Robert Barto's 10th issue of his Weiss recordings is not different from the previous ones. Outstanding musicianship combined with one of the era's most prolific composers is bound to yield a treasured recording. Weiss has become one of my most listened to composers over the last ten years due to Barto's efforts. The compositions are beautiful, complex and mesmerizing as I find myself listening to them for hours on end. Highly recommended in companionship with the other ten Weiss recordings as well as the one of Hagen issued in the late 90s Hagen: Solo Works for Lute [IMPORT]. If you are fond of the lute and the baroque you simply have to listen to Barto's work. I must admit that I am slightly envious of a person encountering Barto/Weiss for the first time. :) Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Barto plays Weiss 2 Dec 2010
By Ricardo Cobo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This series of Weiss Volumes recorded by Barto is an auspicious and venerable project.
The sound engineering is superbly conceived in a live space that shines just the right
amount of definition and proximity to the Lute and its thorny technical challenges.
The result is a combination of richly complex detail and warm sustain that breathes with the music.
What emerges here, is a highly intelligent player at the service of the music and its
powerful structural breadth. Barto conveys Weiss' highly stylized counterpoint with clarity and deep emotion, placing the music at the center of this beautiful recording.
