october 9th 2011 - Krishnasol Jimenez plays some Movements of the Suite in G Major (Accord Nouveau) from “Livre de Pieces pour la Guitare dediè au Roy” (1682) by Robert de Visèe


This recording have been made in a chapel of the Monastery of Ss. Annunziata in Rovato (Italy) with a unique microphone at about 1 meter capturing the direct sound and the natural reverberation of the chapel.


The Suite in G Major needs the tuning: B D G D G. The guitar has been also tuned in 392Hz tipical of the French Baroque.
The Sabionari guitar has a 74 cm. long neck. The difficulty of playing on a such a long neck has been debated in the past. Some experts spoke about the fact that the guitar had been designed only for "Continuo" playing. This video is a demonstration that also "Solo Repertoire" fits perfectly to this guitar.
