Theorbo Fantasy: Old and new music for the long-necked lute


At the end of the 16th century the lute underwent a metamorphosis in tuning and structure: in response to the heady swirl of ideas around reforming vocal music, players and makers were racing to see who could add presence, sound and a bit of pizazz to the instrument. The result was the chitarrone, or theorbo. This recital takes in the early avant-garde repertoire for the instrument of Kapsberger and Piccinini, as well as newer sounds from Sir James MacMillan, Benjamin Oliver and Nico Muhly.
