The title "The Troubadour and the Knight" has various meanings. They are e.g. the both main instruments of this album - lute and flamenco guitar. It means also the composition technique I use. I used often two or more different, contrasting technique like modern, uncommon modulation (changing the key) with basso continuo form the 18th century, or the tender sound of the lute with the octatonic scale which beams archaic energy etc. I'd like to express my attitude toward music and art, that is to say the loyalty to beauty and art. Apropos the most Troubadours were even Knight.
