GREAT review on ‘5 Lute Songs’ to be featured in the next Lauten-Info Ausgabe 2/2018 by Carsten Timpe !
In summary, Gilbert Isbin’s latest work has further expanded the path to the modern art song for the lutenist and has enriched it with five interesting works, some of which are also playable for amateur sound artists. Of course, modern music on / for lute is not something for everyone, you also have to like that. For jazz fans and friends of modern classical music, access to these sophisticated art songs is probably not difficult at all.In any case, one must be grateful to the gifted Belgian composer Isbin for his intensive compositional undertaking of the lute, which continues once again the great tradition of the lute art song and at the same time creates beautiful music!
