Lutenist Hopkinson Smith’s presents Bright & Early, a new album dedicated to the music of early 16th century composers Joan Ambrosio Dalza and Francesco Spinacino. Smith aims to capture the feeling of the “lone lute player who becomes a teller of tales through his instrument” in these reconstructed works by Dalza and Spinacino, utilizing a 6-course lute strung in the tradition of the late 15th century.
