This piece was composed for guitar, in hommage to John Dowland, here is the lute version, played on demand of the author.
I hreby give Valery the permission to post my Chromatic Fancy on Delcamp's site.

Hello Valéry,

How lovely! I just listened to Per-Olov's charming guitar solo again before hearing your lute version. It works very nicely indeed on the lute,

Best wishes, V :D :merci:

New wine in old containers? :P
Nice playing Val.
By the way, what's that hole through the fretboard between nut and first fret? can you get sitar -like bending effects with it?

That is really lovely, Val! Thank you for posting it.

Gee, I wish that guy would join us here (although the username "Andante Largo" might confuse the Mods :wink: ).

Are there any other contemporary composers who are writing for lute?

Regards,

Alan

Well; it is not a hole, but a "tastini" in fact a little fret on the 4th and 5th courses (because of meantone tuning of the lute)

There are some composers (most of them are lutenists) Roman Turovsky (writing a lot of ukrainian folk inpired tunes, and some baroque style suites). I play some in my videos. Also Gilbert Isbin, Ronn Mc Farlane (celtic folk inpired), Brian Wright (very contemporary...) and the young Lukas Henning (very talented, look for him on Youtube...) I will play soon his "fantasia of the 22 of december".

Howard Skempton wrote songs for bass and theorbo (Nigel North). This year's Dartington summer school includes a course on composing for period instruments taught by John Woolrich.
