Robert Barto, lute

A specialist in historical lute performance, Robert Barto studied on a Fulbright scholarship with Michael Schaeffer in Cologne and Eugen Dombois in Basel. In 1984 he was awarded first prize in the International Lute Competition in Toronto as well as the top instrumental soloist prize in the Musica Antiqua Competition in Belgium. Barto’s engagements throughout Europe and North America have included solo recitals at the Festival of Flanders, the Utrecht Festival, New York City’s Music Before 1800, and London’s Purcell Room. An in-demand teacher, he frequently serves on the Lute Society of America summer school faculty and has led courses in Sweden, Italy, and Spain. Recent tours have included concerts and a master class in Tokyo. Barto’s program highlights the music of late Baroque lutenists Sylvius Leopold Weiss and Bernhard Joachim Hagen.
