Jakob Lindberg


“Jakob Lindberg triumphs in some of the most demanding music in the repertoire … They are the most technically demanding lute pieces of their age, yet he surmounts their inherent difficulties splendidly.” 
– BBC Music Magazine

Bach composed several famous works for the lute after inspiring meetings in 1739 with the greatest lute players of the age, Silvius Leopold Weiss and Johann Kropfgans. Partita 1006a was probably composed for Weiss, as an adaptation of the Violin Partita 1006. Lute players had their own form of musical notation that was better suited to their instrument: tabulature. Suite BWV 997, for example, has been handed down to us in a tabulature by Bach’s friend Christian Weyrauch. That suite is not an adaptation of an earlier composition, but one that was originally composed for the lute.
