Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Robert de Visée (1655-1733) was a French lutenist, guitarist, and composer who worked as a chamber musician to Louis XIV, often playing lute or guitar at the king's bedside. This collection of suites was published in paris in 1716, the recording project of which, helmed by recorder player Manuel Starpoli, is completed in this volume. Manuel Staropoli thoughtfully performs on an array of eight different instruments throughout, each tailored in tessitura and tone color to the particular dance being performed, and is accompanied by an authentic continuo ensemble of theorbo, viola da gamba, and harpsichord. Starpoli's performance particularly highlights de Visée's gift for the composition of tunes of simple beauty, which is made clear in the performance of one suite entirely with solo flute.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
This new release, the third in the series recorded by Manuel Staropoli, completes the 1712 collection of suites arranged for treble and bass parts from the works for lute, theorbo, and guitar by Robert de Visée (Sept/Oct 2011 & Mar/Apr 2014) and adds ones found in Visée's guitar books of 1682 and 1686. As in the first two volumes, Staropoli continues to switch between different recorders and baroque flute, and the least effective are still the tracks where he uses a bass recorder for the melody line. There are other idiosyncracies, such as when, in Sarabande 17 in G from the 1682 collection, with a bass recorder on melody, the viola da gamba only plays the few measures where Visée indicated a third voice.

These are enticing pieces, and this is an acceptable recording.
