Arciliuto forte in g

I would like to tell you about my experiences with my Arciliuto forte: I now play pieces by Ballard, E. Gaultier, Kapsberger, E. Mertel, just everything from this time, early 17th century, in g-tuning. My Liuto forte gives me a lot of joy. At the moment I am involved in a project of the Hofreitschule in Bückeburg. There historical horsemanship is practiced. During the demonstrations, with up to 300 spectators, I stand in the middle of the riding hall and the lute is absolutely loud enough. I get a lot of praise from the participants and the audience for the beautiful sound of the instrument.
