konteksty cover

In this issue you will find two articles written by Frank Pschichholz :

J.D. to The School of Night
A contemporary apocryphon written in the form of a letter by John Dowland to The School of Night, with the lutenist betraying the secrets (historical, political, lyrical) of his songs and depriving them of later interpretation deformations.

Frank Pschichholz, Deciphering Second Booke of Songes or Ayres (1600) by John Dowland
A meticulous commentary by the German lute player Frank Pschichholz on years-long attempts at a new deciphering, devoid of well-established interpretation canons (impositions?, persuasions?), of the celebrated Second Booke of Songes or Ayres by John Dowland.

There is a Polish translation of the song texts made by Maria Skiba.
