EL 982310 - Tombeau

Click to enTombeau’ is a strong word, simultaneously indicating immediate tragedy and sweet memories. It is also an untranslatable word, marked by the sound of the French language and that is how we must use it. In music the Tombeau was invented by the lutenist Ennemond Gaultier the Elder, one of the most important figures in 17th century European classical music. It was invented in memory of René Mezangeau, who died in 1632 and who had greatly contributed to lutenist literature. This is because the Tombeau exists as a funeral oration, to be performed at the moment of parting from a family member, a friend, someone beloved. Eduardo Egüez’s splendid rendition provides us with the best of these three great masterpieces by the lutenist Silvius Leopold Weiss.
