Acclaimed English lutenist Anthony Bailes presents on his new CD a fine selection of Dutch lute music of the 17th Century, the “Golden Age” of Dutch cultural and artistic history. Despite the lute being of utmost importance in the musical life of that era, most of its music has not survived and it is rarely being played by today’s performers. This is the meaning and importance of this recording: It allows us, like a travel in time, to have a closer look into this fascinating culture and into the work of Dutch lutenists like Vallet, Huwet and especially van den Hove, contemporaries to such well-known artists as Rembrandt, Vermeer, van Eyck and Huygens.
