Robert de Visée (c. 1655 – 1732/1733) was a lutenist, guitarist, theorbist and viol player at the court of the French kings Louis XIV and Louis XV, as well as a singer and composer for lute, theorbo and guitar.
In this lesson I mainly discuss the interpretation of Baroque guitar music on the modern classical guitar and do a walk through of the piece. Here’s the Youtube Lesson Link if you want to watch it there. I also have another movement from the suite if you want to pair them together: Visee: Passacaille in E Minor.
