When Silvius Leopold Weiss died , he was eulogised as Europe' greatest lutenist and one of Germany' most gifted musicians. This series devoted to his complete lute works continues with the large-scale Sonata No. 52. Thought to be a late work of the compos

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazon was Right! July 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
For months, this CD of lute music by Silvius Leopold Weiss has appeared in the "Recommended for you" section of my Amazon page. I have listened to a substantial amount of baroque music but hadn't heard Weiss before. I decided to check the accuracy of Amazon's computer in referring me to music I didn't know. And, indeed, Amazon was right. I enjoyed this CD and found myself wanting to hear more of Weiss.

Weiss (1687 -- 1750) was a contemporary and acquaintance of both J.S. Bach and Domenico Scarlatti. His music has some of the characteristics of both of these far better-known composers. Scarlatti is remembered today primarily for his 550-odd short sonatas for solo keyboard. Weiss was renowned in his day as the leading performer on the lute. Although we wrote much else, Weiss has become known as perhaps the greatest composer for this difficult instrument. Scarlatti's sonatas moved relatively easily to the piano when the harpsichord became, for a time obsolete. But with the disappearance of the lute, Weiss's music became obscure until the 20th Century revival of interest in early music. Scholars have since poured over and assembled definitive editions of Weiss's prolific work for the instrument, consisting of at least 391 individual movements.

Weiss's music for lute is arranged in the form of multi-movement sonatas, similar to Bach's French or English Suites for keyboard and the celebrated solo music for cello and violin. The works thus usually consist of between five and seven movements using a variety of dance forms.

The bodget-priced Naxos series is in the process of recording Weiss's complete lute music performed by Robert Barto, a contemporary master of the instrument.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch so far July 1, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This is the 9th in the series of Weiss sonatas (suites) by Bob Barto, the world expert at playing this music on baroque lute. His playing and sound seem to get better with every release. Particularly on this disc, he takes more adventurous chances with ornamentation on the repeats. Buy this disc, then be stunned, then buy the previous 8.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Introspective Recordings July 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been collecting Barto's Weiss recordings for more than ten years now and must give them my most glowing recommendation. The sound is outstanding and Barto's musicianship is excellent. However, it is the complexity and beauty of the compositions that truly comes across in Weiss's work. The swirling web of tones build an introspective and meditative feeling that simply sparkles. I truly recommend the whole series of recordings issued by Naxos (11 volumes at this point - July 2012) as well as the Hagen recording from the late 90s Hagen: Lute Sonatas / Locatelli Variations.
Enjoy these almost forgotten baroque gems!

5.0 out of 5 stars lost treasure unearthed! November 18, 2009
By noeton
Format:Audio CD
Barto is so very good; the recording first-rate. Rarely does a product of any type whatsoever provide this magnitude of "bang for your buck." Cannot recommend it more highly. I'm just so glad someone has at last dusted off these lovely gems and shone such a radiant light on them.

Buy all the volumes - you won't be disappointed.

For a full and perhaps fun discussion of this material see my review of Volume I.
