Edin Karamazov: The Lute is a Song

On his extraordinary debut album, the modern master of the lute explores all the colours of this most evocative and versatile of instruments – in music from the Renaissance (Purcell: Dido’s Lament) to the modern day. The many voices of his lutes and guitars are joined by four of today’s most remarkable singers – Renée Fleming, Kaliopi, Andreas Scholl & Sting – in new interpretations of songs from the pop, folk and classical traditions.

Genre: Vocal/Opera
