Giacomo Gorzanis: solo lute music
Giacomo Gorzanis, born Apulian, blind, citizen of Trieste, worked all his career between Italy, Slovenia, Austria, in an area at that time under the influence of the powerful Augsburgs of Austria.
He published four book of tablature for the lute, two books of “napolitanas” (sort of connection point between court and popoular songs) and he wrote what is probably the first written document of music in all keys in the so-called Muenchen manuscript, “Libro de intabolatura di liuto” (1567
Where the musical genres of the half of XVI century seems to be very standardized, the interpreter discovers a whole world of different moods of the rithms, the diminutions, the poliphony with grace and lightness.
The same dance kinds, such as “passamezzo” and “saltarello” become then very different pieces of music, with whom the interpreter composes a full picture of Gorzanis’ art of playing the lute.
The program follows the structure of the first recording dedicated to the composer, “Giacomo Gorzanis: solo lute music” – Michele Carreca – Sony DHM 2017.
