Hello friends of lute music out there. With this Blog starting today, you will find a new internet ressource dedicated to the world of lute music. We begin with a podcast about one of the most reputed lutenists of the Renaissance: Francisco da Milano (1497 - 1543).
Why he was called "Il divino" and why he still enjoys the best music of our times, although dead for more than four and a half century, can be learned from the lutecast episode 1, wherein Giovanni Bogula gives a short introduction to the live and works of Francenco da Milano in a 15 minute audio feature.
