Silvius Leopold Weiss was acknowledged as the greatest lutenist of his age, composing over 600 pieces for the instrument organized into suites or sonatas. In these arrangements for guitar, Danijel Cerovic has selected the only two of Weiss's sonatas to have been given poetic titles, Sonata No. 29 'L'Infidèle' ('The Infidel'), with it's bell-like sonorities and triumphant conclusion, and Sonata No. 28 'Le Fameux Corsaire' ('The Famous Pirate'), thought to refer to the buccaneering pirate Blackbeard. Cerovic also includes two of the great Tombeaux, elegies of profound and poignant depth. Danijel Cerovic is an internationally acclaimed recording artist, touring musician and pedagogue from Montenegro. He is frequently invited to play at international festivals and concert halls, as a soloist or chamber musician, and performs with orchestras all over the world. He has also given masterclasses at international conservatoires, festivals and competitions.
