Robert de Visée's G-major suite takes us back to the court of the Sun King Louis XIV. Here, the musical composition served merely as a framework and guideline for collective music-making. The performer can add trills and even more audacious ornaments to his heart's content, as long as he does not impede the musical flow. De Visées was also not very precise in indicating the exact scoring of his "Pièces de Theorbe et de Luth", published in 1716, and from which the present Suite was drawn.
