The article presents an interview with Robert Barto. When asked about his opinion of guitarists playing the compositions of Sylvius Weiss, he replied that he finds Weiss's music sounds more relaxed and natural on the lute but has heard some guitarists do good jobs. According to him, his approach in learning several sonatas on a regular basis is playing through many different suites and allows six months of preparation.
