Taking a step off the beaten track, if by 'classical music' we include non-western music (and why not?), then certainly one of the greatest musicians to play a lute-type instrument, the sarod, is Ali Akbar Khan. Raga Chandranandan is one of countless examples of Ali Akbar Khan's genius. Another great musician, Julian Bream, expresses his admiration.

Mandryka, thanks for telling me about Toyohiko Satoh's latest release. He's a great player as well as a tea master of the first water. I owe my introduction to the lute music of the French Baroque to his 2 LP set Französische Lautenmusik des Barock. I suppose the concept of iki is sufficiently elastic to comprise certain characteristics of Style Brisé, but on that score I defer to Satoh-san.
