AllMusic Review by James Manheim [-] Michelangelo Galilei, brother of Galileo and son of Vincenzo, was a lutenist and composer, and he was as revolutionary in his chosen field as his more famous brother. The six sonatas and one passamezzo-saltarello pair included on this album contain passages of bizarre dissonance whose impact in their own time, noted lutenist and annotator Paul Beier, is difficult for modern listeners to appreciate. These sonatas have the relaxed, reflective, fantasy-like structure common in instrumental music of the early seventeenth century, but after a variety of expressive figures have been explored, along comes a really pungent harmonic clash. Beier describes Galilei's struggles with publishers who concluded that he must have made notation mistakes, and he manages to set up the dissonances in such a way that they retain something of their impact: his playing is deliberate and discursive, treating the exploration of the various lute figures as almost scientific in its exploration of all the possibilities. He does not linger over the dissonances, for they are not like those of Gesualdo madrigals; they are merely aspects of musical language to be illustrated and incorporated into rhetorical statements. A negative in this 1990 recording is harsh, hissy sound, but the disc is interesting on its own terms and potentially useful for any dramatization or attempt to understand Galileo Galilei in his milieu.
