美国著名鲁特琴演奏家保罗奥戴特在20年前为Harmonia Mundi录制《约翰道兰鲁特琴作品全集》，在这之后，保罗奥戴特不时反覆思索这位作曲家音乐的精髓所在，现在，保罗奥戴特以他这几年获得的领悟，重新詮释约翰道兰23首经典作品。道兰在世时，曾反覆修订自己的作品，因此同一作品留下多种曲谱版本。身兼演奏家与音乐学者身分的保罗奥戴特，仔细推敲何种版本最接近作曲家原意，因此奥戴特决定採用道兰亲自编修的《Varietie of Lute Lessons》作为演奏依据。为了展现道兰音乐深沈内省的音乐特制，奥戴特特别使用体积较大的八弦组鲁特琴，并採用A=392的定调，以低沉的音色展现道兰音乐贴近灵魂深处的特质。

AllMusic Review by Blair Sanderson [-]
One of the world's foremost lutenists, Paul O'Dette is a leading authority on the music of John Dowland, the Elizabethan lute composer par excellence, and this album of favorites, freshly recorded for Harmonia Mundi, is a great introduction for newcomers. Many of the selections are popular and frequently recorded, such as the poignant Lachrimae (which Dowland based on his song, Flow, my tears), and his signature work, Semper Dowland, semper dolens. But O'Dette's album is less a greatest-hits compilation and more of a personal selection of pieces that have had special meaning to him. O'Dette has played Dowland over four decades, and he recorded the complete works for lute in the 1990s for Harmonia Mundi, so his relationship with the music has been long and fruitful. This CD is a reflection on the pieces he has most enjoyed playing and range from the melancholy plaints that were Dowland's stock in trade, to mirthful dances and insightful portraits. Some charming pieces to sample include My Lady Hunnsdon's Puffe (track 1), A Coye Joye (track 15), and The most sacred Queene Elizabeth, her Galliard (track 22), which show the brighter side of the famously gloomy Dowland.
CD My favorite Dowland Paul O'Dette
Paul O’Dette’s newly recorded personal selection of favorite pieces from the pinnacle of lute repertoire by “the Liszt of the lute.”“... maketh a man to be wholly Musiques …” – Thomas Lodge on John Dowland, A Learned Summary (1621)
MY FAVORITE DOWLAND • Paul O’Dette (lt) • HARMONIA MUNDI 907515 (75:23)
This is a curious choice for a new album by Paul O’Dette for Harmonia Mundi. Not because there’s anything unusual about recording more Dowland, whose status as the most popular of lute composers remains unassailed. Rather, I’m surprised the company hasn’t chosen to rerelease from its vaults the “complete” Dowland for lute that O’Dette recorded for them two decades ago. It was issued at the time on five discs, and is currently available through U.S. distributors as a Read more
It’s not an unwelcome one, in any case. O’Dette is an excellent musician, with a command of both the technique and style to bring this kind of thing off easily. His knowledge of the repertoire is extensive (see above). Rather than exactly repeat himself, he’s decided to select a tuning of A=392, on a larger lute than he usually applies to Dowland, giving the darker works a greater gravitas. The famed Lachrimae is two whole tones higher on the deleted second volume of his series (Harmonia Mundi 907161); My Lady Hunnsdon’s Puffe and Walsingham (Harmonia Mundi 907162), a whole tone higher. On the whole, I prefer the earlier versions in the lighter material, such as The Right Honourable the Lady Cliftons Spirit , where the higher pitch, and stronger accenting, give the work greater energy. The heavier, more melancholy works, though, benefit from the darker coloration.
O’Dette has decided to use later versions in all 23 cuts here, including many from the 1610 Varietie of Lute Lessons issued by the composer’s son Robert, and over which Dowland himself had supervision. Which isn’t to say that these versions are any more authoritative than other performing versions, including O’Dette’s; for in an age where the score was the spirit of the law, rather than the letter, a tastefully realized performance was the goal, however much it varied according to performer, instrument, and audience. There’s literal evidence of this in his direct juxtaposition of Lachrimae, and Galliard to Lachrimae.
This is one of the best-sounding releases by O’Dette in a while. It has the closeness and lightly reverberant acoustic to bring out the full tone of his instrument that were part of his earlier Dowland series as well. Each note remains distinct, however, throwing the spotlight on the lutenist’s clean, even production and fine phrasing.
Top marks, then, and worthwhile even if Harmonia Mundi does decide to reissue all five volumes of O’Dette’s fine set.
