Visée, Robert de - Suite in Dm - Lute Video

Post by RobMacKillop » Sun Oct 29, 2017 10:37 pm

Robert de Visée is famous for his suite in Dm for guitar, but here is another, this time for lute. I think his lute music is magnificent, and would work well on classical guitar. I'm playing a "Weiss" lute from Le Luth Doré, which I've strung in single strings instead of double courses, something I think guitarists would enjoy playing. It sounds more lute-like than multi-string guitars. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the music.

Four movements: Allemande, Courante, Saraband, Gigue.

The selected low-level lighting adds to the impact of this video, for sure.
