Michal Gondko plays "Recercare" by Francesco Spinacino (from his Intabolatura de Lauto, Libro Primo, Venice, 1507) and "Rossina, Ain welscher dantz" (from Hans Judenkünig, Ain schone kunstliche underweisung, Vienna, 1523).
Preceeded here by a rhapsodic "Recercare" by Francesco Spinacino, "Rossina" - which needs not to be Hans Judenkünig's own composition - is strongly related to the fifteenth-century dance tenor "Voltate in ça Rosina" (in Guglielmo Ebreo / Giovanni Ambrosio da Pesaro, "De practica seu arte tripudii").
Instrument: 6-course viola da mano by Alexander Batov, reconstructed from the painting "Madonna and Child with Saints" (ca. 1520) by Girolamo dai Libri (1474/75-1555) in the Metropolitan Museum of Arts, New York. For more information about the reconstructed instrument and the painting visit:
