"For those who are already privy to the possibilities of the lute, or who would benefit from exploring its lengthy history, Schuett makes the most of every second here with his inimitable and versatile vision."

– Take Effect (January 15th, 2023)


"The compositions... are well played and imaginative."

– Lute Society of America (LSA Quarterly Volume 57, Nos.1 & 2)

From Navona Records: "DEDICATIONS: NEW WORKS FOR THE LUTE from early music specialist and lutenist Laudon Schuett celebrates the history of the lute while contributing fresh music to the instrument’s centuries-old repertoire. In this album, Schuett, who has been praised for his “immaculate articulation and sensitive phrasing” (Fanfare), imagines himself a well-traveled and long-lived lutenist, composing and performing works that range in period and style; some pieces may sound Italian from the 1530s while others sound English from the 1590s. Schuett’s performances include contrapuntal fantasies, dances, and grounds, giving listeners the chance to more fully understand the instrument’s history and sheer versatility. In DEDICATIONS: NEW WORKS FOR THE LUTE, Schuett is both a performer and an educator, opening up the world of early music for connoisseurs and new fans alike."
