Evangelina Mascardi Plays Ciaccone in E Flat by Weiss

Evangelina Mascardi performs Ciaccone in E Flat Major by German Baroque composer and lutenist Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1686–1750) on a 13 course baroque lute built by Cezar Mateus. Recorded at the church of San Francesco di Orte (Viterbo), Italy. This comes via Edoardo Lambertenghi’s excellent YouTube channel. Beautiful performance of this particularly nice Chaconne by Weiss. Wonderful pacing and ornaments throughout. You can check Mascardi’s recording of the complete lute works of Bach but it nice to hear her playing some Weiss.
