- (Peter Croton)
- Format: CD
The famous Swiss-American lute player Peter Croton plays on his Carpe Diem debut a collection of fantasias by the two Italian lute-composers Francesco Spinacino & Francesco da Milano. The 15th century saw the lute emerge as a solo instrument, and the terms ricer car 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 improviser, free of limiting preconceptions and sparkling with creativity.
