This series of Weiss Volumes recorded by Barto is an auspicious and venerable project.
The sound engineering is superbly conceived in a live space that shines just the right
amount of definition and proximity to the Lute and its thorny technical challenges.
The result is a combination of richly complex detail and warm sustain that breathes with the music.
What emerges here, is a highly intelligent player at the service of the music and its
powerful structural breadth. Barto conveys Weiss' highly stylized counterpoint with clarity and deep emotion, placing the music at the center of this beautiful recording.
