I was shocked at the sound quality of this CD: no other theorbo lute recordings I have capture the sound of the lute as well (probably owing to its 20 bit remastering). Good selections; the Bach is very solid: Eugen is a real technician with clocklike precision.
I would love to locate the entire Bach lute suites recordings (if they exist) by Dombois after hearing this CD.

Even for twice the price this CD would be a must have. I listen to it constantly and neve tire of Dombois rendering of many chestnuts in the literature.

The performer here is Eugen Dombois. Works included are: J S Bach, Prelude Fugue and Allegro (BWV 998) and Suite in Gm (BWV 995): S L Weiss, Tombeau sur la mort de M. Comte de Logy: J G Conradi, Suite in C: D Kellner Fantasias in C and Am.

Dombois plays the music at a pace that allows the voice of his lute to blossom. His phrasing is very expressive and in accord with the structure of the music. He elicits the counterpoint, implicit and explicit very clearly and his use of the limited dynamic and timbral range of his instrument is very effective. This is a wonderful recording of Baroque lute music.

This is one of the finest recordings available of baroque lute, played by a master of authentic technique. Precise phrasing, exquisite interpretation. If I remember correctly, the artist (Eugen Dombois) also recorded in the 1970s an LP of renaissance lute music, which I would love to get hold of.
