Hopkinson Smith has been called the most moving of present day lutenists...he approaches the lute's universe with a musicality which goes far beyond the seemingly limited voice of his instrument. We invite you to explore on this website the magic of his lute and its music.

Review: Hopkinson Smith

[...] The audience was dropped into the musical world of the time - a fascinating experience more intense than in a choral or instrumental group experience.

We were guided by the masterly playing of Hopkinson Smith, one of the great lutenists who is also, quite clearly, a master of the baroque guitar. [...]

The large audience loved it all, not the least Smith's lovely dry explanations of just what he was going to play. [...]
