Simone Vallerotonda

Méditation – Les quatre saisons du luth

On his second solo album for Arcana, Simone Vallerotonda explores the metaphysical and sensual world of seventeenth-century French lute music. The result is Méditation: four suites in four different keys, each associated with a season and with one of the four ‘humours’ (melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic, choleric) that were said to characterize human beings in their temperament and physical traits.
