Description: Gentility, grace and elegance are the outstanding qualities in these suites by Louis XIV's guitar master (from 1719), to which recorders and flute have been added to embellish the simple treble and bass line of the original Pièces mises en partitioin, dessus et basse, which allows for such a possibility anyway. Massimo Marchese (theorbo), Rosita Ippolito (viola da gamba), Manuel Tomadin (harpsichord), Manuel Staropoli (recorders, flute).
