Joseph Iadone,

89, an early-music specialist and recording artist who was among the first in postwar America to popularize the lute, died March 23 in New Haven, Conn.

Largely self-taught, Mr. Iadone was a master on the lute, the delicate ancestor of the guitar that was common in Europe into the 18th century but had become obscure by the 20th century.
