Sylvius Leopold Weiss

October 12, 1686 - October 16, 1750
born in Breslau, Poland, composed during the Baroque period
Polish lutenist and composer Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1686-1750) brought the lute to such a high level of artistic fluency that his instrument did not survive him. Through 1718, Weiss worked as a traveling musician, only briefly accepting positions, drifting from the Polish to Roman to German courts; Weiss ultimately settled in Dresden in 1718. Weiss was a friend to the Bach family and is known to have visited Johann Sebastian Bach on one occasion, possibly inspiring Bach's Lute Suites. Nearly a hundred suites of Weiss exist, though most are missing their introductory preludes, as Weiss usually improvised these elements. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on atleast 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.

I'm listening to Sonata For Lute In B Flat Major (Dresden MS No. 25) this particular track is zzzzzzzzzzzz z z a snore fest. Forgive my boorish description, but perhaps, there are more lively pieces from this composer that you can suggest . Otherwise I must vote thumbs down.

Silvius Leopold Weis deserves more than casual description of biography you give him here since he was one of the best composers of his time and THE BEST LUTENIST OF ALL TIMES.

Makes some of the most difficult pieces for the lute. I like his pieces but I can never play them as well as they should be. I'm sure many other classical musicians can relate to the mixed feelings that come with that.
