De Visée Ouverture de la Grotte de Versailles & Entrée D'Appollon
Robert De Visée
Transcribed for guitar by Mark Viggiani
Series Phoenix TMV 013
Whilst De Visée’s baroque guitar music is well known to modern guitarists, his non-guitar music is less so, and is also of high quality. These two works are arrangements by De Visée of pieces from the music theatre works of Jean-Baptiste Lully. Originally set for the theorbo, they provide a fascinating window into the music at the court of Louis XIV. Also included are notes on ornamentation and interpretation.
