Notes and Editorial Reviews

The second half of the seventeenth century saw the unification and centralization of the French State. Understanding that no real unification could be possible without first setting the cultural tone, Louis XIV deemed that an independent musical identity, in opposition to Italian style, was necessary. This resulted in the style of the goûts réunis.

French composer Robert de Visée (c. 1655-1732) was known as a theorbo and guitar player. Around 1680, de Visée became a chamber musician for Louis XIV. The theorbo pieces for this recording are taken from the Saizenay manuscript compiled in 1699 by the French amateur lutenist Jean Etienne Vaudry, Seigneur de Saizenay.
