Music Before 1800: Paul O'Dette, Lute

The Kosciuszko Foundation, 15 E 65th Street, New York

Paul O’Dette, lute

Mr. Dowland’s Midnight

What better place to hear Paul O’Dette, lutenist supreme, than in the intimate ballroom of the Kosciuszko Foundation! His Dowland program mingles favorite works such as The King of Denmark’s Galliard and Lachrimae with unfamiliar pieces: A Coye Toye, My Lady Hunnsdon’s Puffe, and Mistris Winters Jump. A star performer for many years, Paul O’Dette continues to delight and inspire listeners worldwide.

“A solo lute recital may be one of the most intimate concert experiences ever. Time seems suspended, and melody and harmony intermingle in sweet, soft pluckery. The final Fantasie built to higher and higher climaxes…. It ended with a large flourish by O’Dette, producing yelps and a standing ovation from the audience.”
