Yair Avidor Plays Sarabande and Double by François Dufault

Yair Avidor performs Sarabande and Double by French lutenist François Dufault (c.1604-1672) on an 11-course lute by Paul Thomson. This comes via his great YouTube channel. Dufault was a student of Denis Gaultier (c.1597-1672), but very little is known about his life. There are only a small handful of manuscripts in lute tablature. Beautiful works with an almost improvisatory unfolding nature and flowing feel. Nice intimate performance by Avidor with lovely pacing and phrase ends.
