Vihuela cd sent to the presses: Mårten Falk's new disc with music by Miguel de Fuenllana and Diego Ortíz will be released Feb 08, 2010. For this cd, Mårten made a special study of the vihuela which meant cutting off the guitar nails and reading thousands of pages of research regarding 16th century performance practice. The new ensemble El Escorial concisting of Mårten Falk (vihuela), Ingrid Falk (soprano), Anna Petrini (recorder) and Louise Agnani (viola da gamba) participates on the disc.

This year two discs with Mårtens playing were released: Ylva Skog Terra Firma Nominated for a Swedish Grammy 2010 and Örjan Sandred Cracks and Corrosion.

New Pieces premiered by Mårten Falk during this year: Angelo Gilardino: Winter Tales Sonata, Alexei Agibalov: Sonata no 3, Ylva Skog: Sten Hanson-sånger, Lars Carlsson: Moments During the Conflict, Philip Miller: In memorium Joseph Brodsky.
