Dear Jan, fantastic interpretation. I knew only versions of that song with percussions. First time I hear the pure lute version. Amazing, and beautifully played! And thank you very much for uploading it on these media! ;-))

Hi Jan, it's been along time since I bought your 2 CDs, then it dawned on me that I never told you how they were. I LOVED THEM!! Absolutely gorgeous. Bravo, bravissimo!! It was like I was listening to the music of the Angels.

I love it, I love it! :-)  I  can think of no other piece of music to wake up to & played so beautifully on the Theorbo. I could listen to your interpretation all day long!  Thank you!  ...and BTW I absolutely love your CDs. Wonderful recordings.  Mario :-)

Thank you, the Kapsberger Ciaccona is in the Libro Quarto D' Intavolatura di Chitarone.

Is an instrument like this tuned in fourths like a modern guitar?

I admire the technical skills of this lutenist, but more than that is his musicality in the performance! Outstanding!

Delightful; like most continuo instruments, at its best when played alone.

This performance has had me absolutely enthralled for days. Thank you! I wish I could learn this instrument. it's one of my favourites.

this does not matter, because the famous grounds of the virtuoso ostinato compositions of the 17. century (and used by many composers until our time) as Chaconne, Bergamasca ("the magic chords"), Romanesca, Passacaille and others (!) came from the late 16. century´s folk music (mainly from Italy and Spain). J.G. makes a nice compilation of two of the most exciting Chaconne realizations. jazz-like you also may play pretty different pieces with a common ostinato bass simultaneously ;-)).

@Wild1990Child I'm 99% sure it's a Theorbo... Although it looks somewhat smaller from this angle :T

It will NEVER sound so good on guitar, because the the theorbo's sound is just so much better and nicer!
Report spam or abuse
The theorbo is tuned in fourths and a third on the first 6 strings, accept with the theorbo, the top TWO strings are down a whole octave, called re-entrant tuning. For example, if you put a capo on the fifth fret and turned the third string down a half step (This is lute tuning), and then if it were possible to drop the top two strings down a whole octave, you have theorbo tuning. As for the strings from 7 down to 14, they are tuned in a diatonic scale to fit the piece

i like the interpretational freedom of the ciaccona, it's the minor changes each time around that makes it so good

Listen to the birds at the end. It just fits perfectly...

I'd like to learn how to play this beautiful instrument. I love it! Nice piece...

Are all the lower strings in some kind of open tuning?

Beautiful performance. Interesting theorbo. Is it based on a suriving historical exemplar?

Why did this instrument ever go out of favour? The sound is like a small ensemble all by itself. More, more! Bravooo! Anzi, bravissimo!

I love the Piccinini! I found this piece by accident. It has such a contemporary sound, almost like a mix of new age and folk music. If any one has the sheet music for 6 string classical guitar, please let me know.

One more thing: Do you happen to know if there is a guitar arrangement for this? I would love to have the score. But if there is not, perhaps even lute score would help to make my own guitar arrangement. Thank you again for this presentation.

Wonderful sound and gorgeous playing. Thank you. I am reminded of the passages from Samuel Pepys' diary where he refers to his progress in learning to play the theorbo. Perhaps his instrument was similar to yours in range and appearance.
