Jonas Nordberg

Jonas Nordberg - de Visée, Weiss & Dufaut Super Audio CDPurchased

For his début solo recording, Swedish lutenist Jonas Nordberg presents a delightful selection of works for Baroque lute and theorbo; the grandeur and elevated spirit of the French Baroque music of Dufaut and de Visée alternate with the refinement and extraordinary originality of the works of Silvius Leopold Weiss, who was regarded as the finest lutenist of his time. Jonas Nordberg, who has recorded for BIS three CDs with recorder virtuoso Dan Laurin, gives personal and intense performance of these pieces, recorded in the gorgeous acoustic of the 13th Century Spanish church of San Francisco, in Ávila.
