Format: Audio CD
I thought I possessed this album in a different edition, but in fact it appears it's not quite the same. Figuring out the difference was quite a task.

The number of CDs in the boxed set is not stated here, but on Amazon Germany it is given as four. I therefore imagined the contents to be the same as those of the 4-CD set "Renaissance Lute Music" (ASIN B00020QWFK) I bought from Amazon UK*; this is also on the Archiv label, but has a different cover and bears the proclamation "The Rosette Collection" plus the Penguin Books logo.

However, although both sets comprise four CDs, the Rosette Collection has 114 tracks, whereas the present one apparently has only 105. The Rosette Collection therefore seems to be the better purchase, other things being equal.

The latter is a reissue of six LPs, recorded between 1973 and 1975, each devoted to the lute music of one or two major European countries: England, Italy, Spain, Poland & Hungary, Germany & the Netherlands, and France. It thus probably covers a wider spectrum of Renaissance lute music than any other single album.

Konrad Ragossnig is perhaps best known outside his native Austria by his fine album of Latin American guitar duets with Walter Feybli, which has been reissued multiple times on various budget labels.

Like his contemporary Julian Bream, Herr Ragossnig was an early convert to the lute, and in fact his playing is so much like Bream's as to be indistinguishable to the casual listener; in particular, I find Herr Ragossnig's firm sense of rhythm a refreshing change from the meanderings of some I could name.

Ragossnig, now in his 80s I presume, recorded these works in the early 70s. He also recorded with the Ulsamer Collegium on Archiv and Deutswche Grammofon labels.

These discs cover England, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Germany, The Netherlands and France. Each disc is 68min to slightly over 70min. of music.

It is pretty much all there. Kemp's Jig is missing from England, it is with one of the Archiv renaissance discs, titled Terpsichore.

Recorded sound is better than the Julian Bream 1950s recordings.

These were pioneering works, and there are more players these days. Not that much better than the 70s era, I would say, but we can't have too much lute recorded.
