Editorial Reviews

2006 issued recording of this 17th Century masterpiece, originally published in Paris in 1680. It comprises some of the most beautiful pieces of Ennemond Gaultier, lute professor to the Queen of France. The pieces were exclusively written for baroque lute and unlike most other lute pieces, they were transcribed by Perrine, a contemporary of the authors from the traditional tablatura writing style to a more precise, more modern technique. It gives indications about left- and right-hand positions; about ornementation and arpegements.This has made the Book a fabulous interpretation tool for other pieces; a sort of Rosetta Stone for the lute world. Pernot worked on this recording for over a decade, ultimately travelling to a chapel in Switzerland to achieve a unique recording.

Pernot really knows his onions when it comes to the baroque repertoire. I understand that he took ten years preparing this recording. This recital shows off his brilliant technique and lucid interpretation of the greatest of the masters, E. Gaultier. The only fault one could find with this recording is the unflattering sound of his instrument. Perhaps its the gut strings he favors; there are many muddy and slightly sour sounds throughout. Perhaps if one had never heard the simply stunning recording by Hopkinson Smith 'The Old Gaultier',this recording would suffice. But in the end, one must say that this fine effort falls short of the earlier recording by Smith both in sound and that indefinable extra rhythmic nuance which makes this music really hallucinogenic in its beauty. I would definitely try another recording by this artist though and recommend this cd to those who want to hear the most lovely music at a very high level of competence.
