To have spent the evening with Jordi Savall is to have touched the past and been elevated by its riches.
Gamba virtuoso and musical polymath Jordi Savall returns with a program close to his heart—and his Catalan homeland—celebrating the rich cultural melting pot of the Iberian Peninsula of the 16th and 17th centuries. Savall is joined by the Grammy-winning choir La Capella Reial de Catalunya, and his septet of virtuoso instrumentalists Hespèrion XXI, for a spirited tour through the ornamented melodies and modal harmonies of the Arab-Andalusian tradition, plus dancing songs and romantic and pastoral themes woven together with colorful improvisation. "A group of musicians who show consummate mastery of their instruments and play in a sunny, lively style that is full of Iberian color" (Bachtrack).
