Yair Avidor Plays Charles Mouton on Lute

Yair Avidor performs Prelude in A minor by Charles Mouton (c.1617-1699) from his first book, entitled Pièces de luth sur différents modes. Played on an 11-course lute by Paul Thomson. This comes via his YouTube channel. Avidor has a growing collection of works on his YouTube so go subscribe and check it out. Beautiful pacing and presentation of the flowing lines by Avidor.

Also listen to him playing la belle homicide, a courante originally written by Denis Gautier (c.1597-1672), followed by Charles Mouton’s Double (an embellished version) of the same piece.
