Product Notes

Oleg Timofeyev, a Russian-born American lutenist, brings together a personal collection of some of his favourite Elizabethan pavans, each carefully chosen from lute books or unpublished manuscripts, spanning the length of Queen Elizabeth Is reign. What intrigues Timofeyev is the special status that the pavan held during this time, and how it morphed from a simple dance to a slow, grand, fantasy-like composition. This album showcases this fascinating development; from two pavans inspired by Elizabeths predecessor, King Henry VIII, the first of which includes a marvellous fanfare section, to a collection of anonymous pavans that utilised common harmonic progressions for the first time, delighting the post-Renaissance listener. The famous John Dowland features on this release, with his tongue-in-cheek Semper Downland semper dolens (a complaint that he neverheld a position at Elizabeths court), as well as Daniel Bacheler and John Daniel, whose eccentric, almost decadent style brought the art of the pavan to it's highest degree of sophistication. Oleg Timofeyev is a lutenist, guitarist, musicologist and documentary film director. The Pavan is an ancient Spanish-Italian Dance form, solemn, slow and stately. It gained great popularity in Renaissance England, in which it developed from a straight dance form in the time of Henry VIII to a highly sophisticated composition of a slow, rhapsodic and fantasy-like nature, in which the composer expressed his often melancholy emotions. The composers featured are Cotton, Ferrabosco, Philips, Johnson, Mason, Robinson, Dowland, Daniel, Bacheler and several Anonymi. Oleg Timofeyev is a highly respected lutenist, guitarist, musicologist and documentary film director. He wrote the excellent liner notes for this release.
