David Dolata: Lutorama

David Dolata‘s lecture-demo Lutorama take you on a tour through his lutes where he explains the instrument’s evolution in response to the repertoire and the differences among them and plays some Renaissance and Baroque pieces on each of them. If you ask a lutenist’s wife how many lutes her husband needs, she’ll respond: “just one more.” Classical guitarists generally get by with just one guitar, so why can’t lutenists? In his presentation, David Dolata will answer that question by showing the audience his five lutes and counting and how they’re used. After that you’ll know why lutenists always need just one more.
