The music on this album it's really beatiful. This melodies goes to Barroque Age through composers like David Kellner and the lute all time virtuoso Leopold Weiss and others, their works are a miracle listen after 300 year in the 18 strings lute barroque. I did not know David Kellner still the XIII International Festival of Guitar in Morelia (1998) interpreted by the Master Hubert Kappel (Germany) and since that day I was searching any cd with some songs of Kellner.
Without doubt the most significant work of Kellner is the Treulicher Unterricht. It was reprinted several times after his death. The fourth German edition appeared in 1749 and the second Dutch one in 1751, this time published by J. Covens junior. It then took nearly 30 years before the fifth German edition was printed in 1773 by Christian Herold Witwe followed by the sixth in 1782. The seventh edition was enlarged with "Neue Melodien zu einigen Liedern des neuen Hamburgischen Gesangbuchs" by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and appeared in 1787. Most remarkable is the fact that Treulicher Unterricht was even translated into Russian and published under the title Vernoe nastavlenie v sosinenii general-basa. . . Sosinennoe gospodinom D. Kelnerom. . . (Moscow, 1791) and edited and translated by N. Zubrilovy. With the exception of the two facsimile reprints available today the last printed edition appeared in 1796 published by J.G. Herold in Hamburg. This list of editions shows the impact and continuing demand Kellner's book once had. As I have shown earlier it was still used at least in Sweden as late as the 1830s, even if it was not so successful in this country as it had been in Germany and the Netherlands.
Are missing several pieces like 'Phantasia In C Major','Phantasia In A Minor','Phantasia In D Major' that appears another ASIN: B000001RTP titled 'David Kellner: Lute Pieces' I hope reimpresing this lost jewel of the lute music. Simply the magic of music in this cd IS A WONDERFUL TRAVEL FOR THE TIME ...
