A feature of his playing is the beauty of his phrasing. Meticulously shaped, rhythmically supple and well-enunciated, Lindberg's phrasing not only stands in auspicious contrast to the rather stiff interpretations found on many other recordings but also shows how critical this aspect is to the expressive performance of early Renaissance music….This is without doubt the most impressive musical survey of early Italian Renaissance music yet recorded.

Here is a fine recording by an excellent musician on his best form….some of the most technically assured and thoughtfully conceived lute playing I have heard on record.
Early Music

Lindberg plays this unjustly underexposed music very well indeed, his finger work equal to the sudden arrivals of fast passage work and the ingenious 'split mezzana' effect in Capirola's Padoana, and he has been faithfully recorded.

A collection of lute music that appeared in Venice during the first half of the 16th century. Venice was the most powerful secular state in Italy at this time and was established as a centre for renaissance culture. It was also here that music printing was first developed and this recording includes music from these early prints by Joanambrosio Dalza, Francesco Spinacino, Giovanni Maria da Crema and Francesco da Milano. There is also music from the Capirola Lute Book (c.1517) with dances, ricercars and intabulations by Vincenzo Capirola.
