Notes and Editorial Reviews

In this wonderful solo album, Norwegian early music performer Rolf Lislevand turns his attention to two C17 composers from the court of Louis XIV: Robert de Visée and the Italian-born Francesco Corbetta, and plays their masterpieces with historical awareness and an inventiveness which belongs to the tradition. He uses two contrasting instruments here, the small Baroque guitar with its sparkling, crystal-clear sonorities and the theorbo, the dark-toned and earthy king of the lutes.
