William Waters - lute
Esaias Reusner (1636-1679) was born in Silesia (formerly German, now Polish), a country devastated by the Thirty Years’ War. A child prodigy on the lute he fled the country and served at the courts of Breslau, Vienna, Leipzig and Berlin.
Reusner decribes his own lute music as follows: “There being as many inclinations and desires as there are persons on earth, some may be drawn to the brilliance and noise of thunder and lightning but ever, since my youth the soft and sweet sonority of noble music that quickens the spirit has been my only amusement and pleasure and there to I have sacrificed the greater part of my time with the lute.”
This new recording presents Reusner’s collection “Erfreuliche Lauten- Lust”, consisting of suites of dance forms.
WilliamWaters started his career as a guitarist (he was a First Prize winner of the Concurs Internacional Andrés Segovia in 1981), later he specialized on the lute.
