About

This is the third and final recording of the complete 'Musique de la Chambre du Roi' by Robert de Visée.

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.

The previous two issues of De Visée by this ensemble received 5 star reviews in the international press. They are all seasoned early music players, each already with several Brilliant Classics CDs to their name.
