Jonatan Bougt Theorbo Recital

Swedish guitarist and theorbist Jonatan Bougt gives a full theorbo recital in London at the Dutch Church. This comes via The Lute Society and their YouTube channel. I’m really enjoying these concerts from the Lute Society that include such great repertoire, performances, and the performer speaking to the audience. Wonderful playing by Bougt with some of the works having such beautifully calm pacing yet still so much forward momentum. Magic!
