about

Peter Croton, Lute: Music for lute by Francesco Spinacino and Francesco da Milano (16th Cent.)

The famous Swiss-American lute player Peter Croton plays on his Carpe Diem debut a collection of recercares and fantasias by the two Italian lutenist-composers Francesco Spinacino & Francesco da Milano. The 15th century saw the lute emerge as a solo instrument, and the terms ricercar and fantasia were used for works created without preexisting models. The ability to improvise was apparently as widespread then as it is in jazz today. Peter Croton, also known for his contemporary and jazz-related musical projects, explores this beautiful musical world with the heart of a true improvisor, free of limiting preconceptions and sparkling with creativity.
