Bach Prelude, allemande, courante, sarabande from suite BWV996
Villa-Lobos Prelude number 3
Mompou Suite Compostelana
with Scottish and French lute manuscripts
Scottish born Sean Shibe is now regarded as one of the world's leading guitarists. The combination of highly creative programming with brilliant technique means that his recitals are always startlingly fresh and involving. This programme brings to life some hauntingly beautiful Renaissance lute music, calls in at the Baroque for some Bach and ends in contemporary Spain with Mompou's Suite Compostelana with its haunting melodies redolent of his native Spain.
