A hidden gem of guitar music written by Francesco Corbetta for the bedchambers of Louis XIV. Widely known as one of the founding members of the Palladian Ensemble, this is Carter's debut solo recording.

'William Carter of Palladians performs with great agility and eloquence, on a first solo disc with as much appeal for fans of Eric Clapton as those of John Williams.' The Observer  

 

La Guitarre Royalle is William Carter's first solo recording and features the works of Francesco Corbetta (c. 1615-1681) who taught guitar to Louis XIV.  Corbetta was considered by his contemporaries to be the greatest guitar virtuoso of his time. As well his time in the French Royal Courts, Corbetta also lived in London for a few years as part of King Charles II "Private Music", playing and teaching the royal brothers as well as other members of the nobility.

The works on this recording are from Corbetta's books La Guitarre Royalle, and are firmly in the French style – the result of his residence in France and at the French-influenced English court of Charles II.
