Robert de Visee's Menuet performed by Alastair Lewis
France was the country of Robert de Visée's birth sometime around 1655. His family history is unknown but it is likely that it was a well-to-do household which provided him an education and excellent instruction in music. He was accepted by the King Louis XIV as a court musician at the age of 25. De Visée composed mostly for the guitar, theorbo, and lute, and is arguably the most important French composer of Baroque guitar music.
