4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasingly lyrical recording of a great composers works.
Just to balance the enormous puff for Paul O'Dette from another reviewer.... I would say that Lindberg's performances are well paced and lyrical - certainly not as flashy and "in-your-face" as the American ubermaester's recording; but then, Dowland was a northern European.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Lindberg starts well, then gets bogged down
Unfortunately for Jacob Lindberg, Paul O'Dette has also released a "complete" Dowland lute works. And the latter's is the more complete answer for buyers. Lindberg is fine with the more pacey material (the very first four tracks of Disc One are excellent, crisply-delivered performances that bode very well indeed), but is consistently bogged down in the quieter,...

This is a really great recording, and has now been reissued by Brillant Classics for about twelve quid! Dowland :Complete Lute Music. My advice is to snap it up - it's a gem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lindberg starts well, then gets bogged down, 26 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Dowland - Complete Solo Lute Music (Audio CD)
Unfortunately for Jacob Lindberg, Paul O'Dette has also released a "complete" Dowland lute works. And the latter's is the more complete answer for buyers. Lindberg is fine with the more pacey material (the very first four tracks of Disc One are excellent, crisply-delivered performances that bode very well indeed), but is consistently bogged down in the quieter, slower pieces, at least, in comparison with O'Dette. I often detect difficulty from Lindberg in such passages and he sounds stretched too far here and there. Sorry to say, he often comes almost to a standstill, where O'Dette always sustains the listener's interest and emotions. Indeed, O'Dette totally outclasses Lindberg on such tracks. However, program just those tracks where Lindberg flows, and there is much of beauty to be heard. Luckily, my CD player has a Delete File function, allowing programs to be automatically recalled whenever the disc is inserted into the player, without having to reprogram. This allows the programming of an attractive selection, devoid of the less successful tracks. I would say 30% of Lindberg's Dowland is excellent, conceding absolutely nothing to O'Dette. Another 40% is fair to good, but the remaining 30% is, like I said, bogged down. Go for O'Dette. With him, 95% sounds superb. Having said all that, I will not be getting rid of the Lindberg; I'll keep both sets. Lindberg's best moments are well worth having, and BIS's recording quality is outstanding.
