«Theorbo and Friends»
Throughout the Classical era and into modern times, the guitar and other plucked stringed instruments have mostly been used in solo performance or in pop music. However, in earlier times these instruments held a very respectable place in musical society. Perhaps because of the flexibility of basso continuo and the portability of these instruments themselves, many chamber works of the Baroque and Renaissance eras include lutes, theorbos, guitars and other lesser-known plucked instruments.
