da Milano, Francesco / da Crema, G. M. - Ricercari - Lute Video

Two very similar pieces, we can say in fact the same piece but by two composers... The first one, I think it is the original, is Ricercar (N84) by Francesco da Milano, and the other one is the version of the same piece published after da Milano's death by Govanni-Maria da Crema.
Played here on a lute made by Didier Jarny, 6 course and tuned with an octave string on the fourth, fifth and sixth courses.

Thank you, Val, nice piece (or pieces). Interesting to hear them as a pair too. Of the two, I think I have a slight preference for the original.

Best wishes,
