Lutenist Toyohiko Satoh plays music from the court of Vienna around 1700. A special discovery is the Suite by Adam Franz Ginter, who was a famous castrato singer in that time, but also composed some pieces for the lute. This recording is a tribute to this largely forgotten musician who most probably had a short and rather sad life. The following Suite by Saint-Luc contains a “Tombeau for François Ginter” and was composed to lament the early death of this extraordinary singer, lutenist and composer.
