The “Luteduo” Anna Kowalska and Anton Birula plays Works…

The Luteduo with Anna Kowalska and Anton Birula plays works on two lutes and also on baroque guitar and theorbo, a combination that sounds very well together.

This is the famous Canarios by Gaspar Sanz played on baroque guitar and theorbo:



Anna KOWALSKA baroque guitar
Anton BIRULA theorbo

Gaspar Sanz CANARIOS performed by LUTEDUO – a fantasy compilation … if Sanz ever met Bach…. The famous Canarios is intercepted by themes from J.S. Bach cello suites Nr 4 and 6

In the next piece, a Ciaccona by Alessandro Piccinini, Anna Kowalska starts with a kind of tapping technique similar to the technique used on electric guitars:

From the biography found on the homepage of the Luteduo:

Anna Kowalska studied lute with Toyohiko Satoh, Nigel North and Joachim Held at the Royal Concervatory in The Hague, The Netherlands. Having been educated as a classical guitarist as well, Anna has covered a vast repertoire from the Renaissance to late Baroque including 19th century repertoire for historical guitar.

Anton Birula has studied the lute with Prof. Toyohiko Satoh at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague and with Prof. Konrad Junghaenel at the Hochschule fur Musik in Cologne. With his concentration on the extant solo literature for the Baroque lute Anton Birula has performed numerous lute recitals featuring music of J.S.Bach, S.L. Weiss and French lutenists. His special interests were transcriptions of J.S. Bach suites for solo cello and violin sonatas and partitas for the Baroque lute.
