Jordi Savall – an instrumentalist, a conductor, the driving force behind ensembles Hespèrion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert des Nations, a virtuoso of the viola da gamba and a tireless discoverer of music of old centuries. His contribution to the discovery of the medieval, Renaissance and Baroque repertory is difficult to overestimate. Jordi Savall restores forgotten pieces of music from his beloved Catalonia, from Europe in general, the Middle and Far East and from Latin America. Each of Savall’s recordings is based on solid musicological research, but is also enriched by his unique talent for the reconstruction of forgotten or incomplete music. Equally unique is Savall’s passion for musical and cultural ecumenism and his magnetic personality can bring Jewish cantors and Arabic singers to a single stage.
