After graduating cum laude in Musicology at Tel-Aviv University, Israel Golani has established himself as an acclaimed lute, Baroque guitar and theorbo player. His interest in historical plucked instruments led him to Renaissance lute and theorbo studies with Fred Jacobs at the Conservatorium of Amsterdam, and with Elizabeth Kenny at The Royal Academy in London.

An accomplished continuo player, Israel has performed with many leading European orchestras, such as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic and the Rotterdam Philharmonic, and has collaborated with renowned conductors such as Paul McCreesh, Jos van Veldhoven and Michael Hofstetter.

This disc of 17th-century French guitar music contains works by Francesco Corbetta, Henry Grenerin, François Le Cocq and Robert de Visée.
