The Lute in the Dutch Golden Age

Musical Culture in the Netherlands ca. 1580-1670

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
The lute’s cultural impact throughout the Dutch Golden Age can be compared to that of the piano in the 19th century. It was the universal instrument for solo music-making, as well as in ensembles and to accompany singers, mainly associated with the social elite - the aristocracy and the prosperous burghers. This richly illustrated book is the first to showcase famous and obscure lutenists, professional musicians and amateurs, the lute music in books and manuscripts, the lute makers and the international lute trade, while also exploring the place of the instrument in the Dutch literature and art of the period.
