To have spent the evening with Jordi Savall is to have touched the past and been elevated by its riches.

Early Music
Jordi Savall with La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Hespèrion XXI
Splendor of the Iberian Baroque

Gamba virtuoso and musical polymath Jordi Savall returns with a program close to his heart—and deeply connected with 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).
