There was a two hour program on the internet radio station France Music this morning: (22 Sept 08) Edouard Fouré Caul-Futy, interviewed Hopkinson Smith and played an extensive program called "Le Luth dans tous ses états"

(I'm not sure how long the stream will be available)
[click the headphone icon next to the words "Emission du 22 septembre"]

The interview was very informative, but even if you don't speak French, the music is wonderful... and includes the debut of several pieces and compositions from Smith's latest CD, Il Divino (Francesco Da Miláno) due out on September 30th 2008.

I got to speak with him after a lute concert a few years ago. Very, very nice man. Fantastic lutenist too!

I saw him a couple years ago at the 92nd St. Y in NYC, where he played vihuella. What an amazing musician. Definitely make an effort to see him if you can, whatever he might be playing that night.
