2. Le Roy - Branle simple de moy pitié
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 1.08Mb)

Haunting piece, rather dark for a Branle. Le Roy's book for 4-course renaissance guitar is absolutely fascinating. And sounds pretty good on the Uke.

3. Le Roy - Pavane played on Ukulele
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 1.17Mb)


Today, the idea of using an Ukulele as a substitute for a renaissance guitar came true. Bought a rather inexpensive tenor uke with fine Aquila Nylgut strings, which make a good sound. If you want to listen to a sound example, just click on the headline.
If you want to learn the Ukulele (classic or modern style) I recommend the great site of Rob McKillop: FingerStyleUke

4. Bossinensis goes Uke - Ricercar 6
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (application/pdf, 0.04Mb)


I am hooked. After studying the great stuff Rob MacKillop sent to me (from FingerstyleUke) I reentabulted a nice little recercar by Bossinensis. It's fresh and cool and fun, yeah. If you want to listen to it, click on the headline, if you like to play it yourself, here comes the tab: Bossinensis goes uke. (Original tab by Sarge Gerbode. Listen to Recercar6

5. Hans Newsidler - Ach Lieb mit Leid
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 2.34Mb)

Ach lieb mit Leid (Premium version), from "Ein Newgeordnet Künstlich Lautenbuch". The diminutions are tricky. Still not the real thing, but again benign reverb makes it bearable.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (application/x-shockwave-flash, -0.00Mb)

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 1.36Mb)

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Zart schoene Frau, from "Ein Newgeordnet Künstlich Lautenbuch". It looks quite easy, but is tricky in the details. Benign reverb makes it bearable.

10. Hans Newsidler (1508-1563): Benedictus
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 3.97Mb)

Description: Neither to the left, nor to the right, you see Hans Newsidler. The picture was taken during the International Lutefestival in the Naturkundemuseum in Regensburg.

Benedictus, from "Ein Newgeordnet Künstlich Lautenbuch". An intabulation of a Heinrich Isaac setting. It contains all the characteristic elements of Newsidlers art. Rapid runs and embellishments at the brink of playability. Currently it's a little beyond my horizon, but I keep trying.

18. Capirola (1474-1548) - Rechercar decimo
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 0.53Mb)

My first piece, played from an Italian tablature.
Capirola was a nobleman from Brescia, who developed the first virtuous lute music.
His works stand between the meandering "improvised" style of Spinacino and the elaborated
polyphony of Francesco da Milano.

Here I recorded the Rechercar 10 from his lutebook. Click on the headline to listen to the music example. Enjoy.

Francisco da Milano-Podcast starts today

Hello friends of lute music out there. With this Blog starting today, you will find a new internet ressource dedicated to the world of lute music. We begin with a podcast about one of the most reputed lutenists of the Renaissance: Francisco da Milano (1497 - 1543).

Why he was called "Il divino" and why he still enjoys the best music of our times, although dead for more than four and a half century, can be learned from the lutecast episode 1, wherein Giovanni Bogula gives a short introduction to the live and works of Francenco da Milano in a 15 minute audio feature.
