Our Method for the Baroque Lute can provide you with the technical and musical foundations required for a solid and comprehensive approach to playing the baroque lute. That is indeed the purpose, and challenge, of this book: to reach out to as many lute-lovers as possible, and give them the opportunity to express themselves via the baroque lute, however advanced they may be in their musical education. Its audience includes not just those who have never played a musical instrument, but also seasoned guitarists desirous of initiation into the mysteries of the baroque lute.
Miguel Serdoura was born in Lisbon, where he began his musical and artistic career, earning his Diploma in Classical Guitar in 1994.
From 1999 to 2004, after studying the lute at the Paris Conservatoire, with Claire Antonini, Miguel Serdoura completed his musical education with Hopkinson Smith in Basel, Switzerland, at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.
As a soloist, Miguel Serdoura has given recitals in France, Portugal, United Kingdom, Austria, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, China and USA.
In 2000, he took part in a television documentary devoted to the lutenist Hopkinson Smith, broadcast by Mezzo, Classica, RTBF and TSR.
Miguel Serdoura has recorded 3 solo CDs for the Dutch Label Brilliant Classics, in 2008, 2010 and 2012, earning a "Diapason d'Or Découverte" for his CD "The Court of Bayreuth", a 4 Stars Audioclásica for his CD "Austria 1676" and a "5 Diapason" for his CD "Les Baricades Mistérieuses".
He is also the author of a major treatise on the baroque lute called "Method for the Baroque Lute", published in Italy by Ut Orpheus in 2008. In 2010, he created, for the same publisher, a new collection of music scores for the Baroque lute called "La Rhétorique des Dieux".
In 2015 Miguel Serdoura founded Le Luth Doré SAS, a french company dedicated to honoring and preserving the musical legacy of European early plucked instruments such as lutes, mandolins and early guitars, by creating high quality inexpensive instruments, urtext music editions, accessories and educational programs.
Miguel Serdoura performs on lutes built by Cezar Mateus, Princeton, USA.
He currently lives and teaches Renaissance and Baroque lute in Paris.
