The lute was the most beloved solo instrument of the Renaissance, but lutenists often doubled the pleasure by performing as duos. A large repertoire of exciting lute duets survives from throughout Europe, but the pinnacle of this art was achieved in Italy and England. The leading performers of the time cultivated a style of duets in which the two players challenged each other by trading passages back and forth with increasingly dazzling feats of virtuosity.
