This 4CD set presents the complete music that Robert de Visée (1655‐1733) wrote for Louis XIV, the Sun King.
De Visée was a highly esteemed court composer, the chamber musician of Louis XIV the Sun King. He wrote several books of works for lute and theorbo, which on this recording are enriched by the inclusion of flute, viola da gamba and harpsichord. It is music of lush instrumental flourish, highly ornamented: typical French court music, full of grandeur and grace.
These recordings were previously issued separately. The Early Music Ensemble received 5 star reviews in the international press.
