Pianist and composer Emile Naoumoff was approached one summer by a pupil’s father, an amateur musician, who asked him to write a piece for the lute.

The result is a touching work entitled “Lament,” subsequently written in lute tablature (seen in the foreground of the video).

“Lament” seems to exist in more than one period (multiple sound worlds, if you will). It recalls the plaintive character and melancholy mood of so many lute compositions from the Late Renaissance, while as the same time being of our age.
