Video: Xavier Díaz-Latorre Performs Robert de Visée
Xavier Díaz-Latorre is a Catalán musician who has performed with many of Europe’s leading ensembles, most notably as a member of Jordi Savall‘s Hesperion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, and Le Concert de Nations.
However, he is a world-class soloist in his own right and, as you’ll see, a musician with a wondrous technique and imagination. His performance of the Chaconne in G major by French Baroque composer and lutenist Robert de Visée is dispatched with a very personal sense of style on the theorbo.
