Description: The Vogelweide cycle dates from 1960 and was written for none other than Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and guitarist Siegfried Behrend, as approachable as any other example of conservative German Lieder but your medieval German better be up to snuff (OK, just joshing - modern German will get you most of the way there). Desderi provides two significant examples of Italian solo guitar music both dating from the mid 1950s and has his own brief encounter with pre-Renaissance poetry. Middle High German, Tuscan and Roman texts. Leonardo de Lisi (tenor), Luca Trabucchi (guitar).
