Duets with Arthur

Post by Valéry Sauvage » Fri Mar 21, 2008 7:45 am

With my student Arthur we record some duets, and he played a solo piece, a recercar by Franciscus Bossinensis.
Arthur is playing lute since 3 years, beginning straight on the lute without playing guitar first.

That was beautiful, thanks Arthur and Valery! I recognised the Susato piece, it's one of my favourites. Lovely playing! I would love to hear some more

How unusual for a young person to have the opportunity to start on the lute before the guitar! Obviously it has paid off, since Arthur plays very nicely. He is lucky to have such a teacher too! Thank you, I enjoyed all the pieces, and especially the Susato, which sounded familiar, but better than I have ever heard it. Well done both.

:bravo:
