Nevertheless, it has often been difficult to transmit to contemporary audiences what distinguishes Weiss' music from the countless other suites of the period for lute or other stringed instruments. British-American lutenist Nigel North takes large strides toward rectifying the situation with this collection of suites, interspersed with short, single pieces

Silvius Leopold Weiss Composer. Sonata No 19. Silvius Leopold Weiss Composer. Suite I. Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750), an almost exact contemporary of his friend and collaborator JS Bach, served as a royal chamber musician to the Elector August II of Saxony and was renowned in his day as one of the supreme masters of the lute.
