About

Luciano Contini provides ample evidence of the lute tradition which continued far into the Baroque period with his recording of the Sonate d’intavolatura di leuto by Giovanni Zamboni, which now makes a welcome return to the catalogue as part of Glossa’s Cabinet treasure trove.

Even well into the 20th century, the Italian tradition was thought to have ceased around 1650, yet Zamboni’s collection was printed in 1718, and his music calls to mind – for Dinko Fabris in his booklet note – the influence of Corelli and Weiss as much as it does that of Piccinini.

Contini – who is an ensemble player with many leading groups – is here a virtuoso soloist on the archlute, an admirable advocate for a style of playing and for a neglected composer.
