By the 14th century, lutes had dispersed all over the Italy. Perhaps due to the cultural pressure of the Hohenstaufen kings, based in Palermo, the lute had also made important inroads into the German-speaking lands by the 14th century.The lute enjoyed a revival with the development of interest in historical music around 1900 and throughout the century. That revival was further enhanced by the early music movement in the twentieth century. Important pioneers in lute revitalization were Julian Bream, Hans Neemann, Walter Gerwig, Suzanne Bloch and Diana Poulton. Lute performances are now not unusual; there are many expert lutenists, particularly in Europe where the most employment is to be found, and new compositions for the instrument are being created by composers.During the early days of music movement, several lutes were built by available luthiers, whose area of expertise was often classical guitars. Such lutes were greatly constructed with similar to classical guitars, with fan bracing, heavy tops, fixed frets, and lined sides, all of which are old-fashioned to historical lutes. As lutherie reward enhanced, manufacturers started making instruments based on historical styles, which have proven on the whole to be far lighter and more responsive instruments.Lutenistic practice has reached considerable heights in recent years, just because of an increasing number of world-class lutenists: Robert Barto, Eduardo Egüez, Edin Karamazov, Nigel North, Christopher Wilson.
