Fabled for its ability to seduce gods and calm mad kings, the lute has long been bestowed with magical powers. On the baroque guitar, rarely-heard vihuela da mano, and the elegant, long-necked theorbo, Argentinian Eduardo Egüez invites us into the quietly passionate world of Italian, Spanish Renaissance and Baroque solo lute music.
