Since 1695 Robert de Visee (ca. 1655 - after 1732) was Maître de guitare du Roy, personal guitar teacher of the Sun King, but he also shone in the chamber concerts of the court as a virtuoso on the theorbo. Xavier Diaz-Latorre gives us here an insight into a repertoire that in de Visee's lifetime was initially reserved for exclusive circles of the French court. Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1968, Xavier Diaz-Latorre studied with Oscar Ghiglia at the Musikakademie and with Hopkinson Smith at the Schola Cantorum. He has given concerts at major venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, the Teatro Colon, and the Wiener Philarmonie. Diaz-Latorre performs regularly with world-renowned ensembles such as Hesperion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert des Nationa. He has made over 50 recordings for international record labels, and has recorded the complete works for guitar by the composer Francisco Guerau among other titles. He teaches early plucked instruments, chamber music and bass continuo at the ESMUC, and has been invited to teach in the USA, Korea, Japan, and several European countries.
