Paul O’Dette forms together with Jakob Lindberg and Hopkinson Smith the first golden generation of early music lute players. This lunchtime recital at Wigmore Hall was not a generic lute greatest hits or baroque lute showcase but focused on English lute music. It was, however, rich and varied enough to please not only connoisseurs. It ranged from harpsichord adaptations (Byrd) to original lute compositions (Johnson, Dowland and Bacheler). It was also varied in forms, with the nice contrasts between pavans and galliards.
