Lute partitas vol 3, Sylvius Leopold Weiss - Musica Universalis. Total time: 50'. Booklet - 8 pages. Weiss Partitas from the Grussau manuscript originaly kept at the Cistercian convent in Krzeszow. For this recording I chose partita in D major (Weiss SW 2) and partita in C major (Weiss SW 88). The former has a concordant version in the London manuscript, however this version is written for the 13 course lute and ends with an additional Chaconne. Partita in C major is unique for the Krzeszow manuscript except the Prelude and the Allemande whose similar versions can be found in the Dresden manuscript.

Some of the best Weiss Partitas from the Grussau manuscript originaly kept at the Cistercian convent in Krzeszow. This is a continuation of my work with the manuscript. This time I have chosen Partita D major - very rarely played or recorded - and Partita F major which has a concordant version in London manuscript except 3 movements - Prelude, Menuette and Chaconne.
Lute partitas vol 1, Sylvius Leopold Weiss - Musica Universalis. Total time: 51:20. Booklet - 12 pages. Some of the best Weiss Partitas from the Grussau manuscript originaly kept at the Cistercian convent in Krzeszow. For the purpose of this recording I have chosen two of them: D minor and B flat major. In the manuscript both are entitled „Parthia”, which signifies a piece for a solo instrument in form of a suite. Parthia in D minor has concordant versions both in the Dresden manuscript and the manuscript currently kept in London, but originally housed in Prague. Both versions are shorter: only the Krzeszow partita has all the eight movements including the Prelude and the Bouree.
