Paul Berget (Lute)

Born: USA

The American lutenist, Paul Berget, received his B.F.A. degree from the University of Minnesota in 1972. After graduation, he continued his studies with the legendary Diana Poulton at the Royal College of Music in London, where he also studied with acclaimed lutenist Nigel North.

In 1973, Paul Berget has appeared on Broadway as an actor and lutenist in a musical production of Cyrano starring Christopher Plummer. Other early music collaborations include the Rose Ensemble, Ensemble Polaris, the Minnesota Lute Quartet (MiLQ), Minstrelsy! and performances with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. His music has been heard in the Twin Cities area at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, the Children's Theatre, and more recently in the Guthrie Theatre's production of As You Like It. Recently Paul has been performing as the lutenist in the Baroque ensemble: Sprezzatura, and in the internationally acclaimed ensemble Minstrelsy!, a group that records on the Lyra Chord label.

In addition to playing early music, Paul Berget has also performed in a variety of other musical styles: modern classical and steel string guitar, and popular music, and world music.
