“The glorious ensemble sound of Hespèrion XXI featured period-instrument textures rendered with a delicacy and clarity sufficient to make a listener truly feel like a time traveler. — The New York Times

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

Jordi Savall and his legendary ensemble, Hespèrion XXI, will explore 100 years of musical history in a fascinating concert of music by early Baroque masters.

For more than 50 years, Jordi Savall has rescued musical gems from the obscurity of neglect and oblivion and given them back for all to enjoy. A tireless advocate for early music, he interprets and performs the repertory both as a viola da gambist and a conductor.

Savall founded the ancient music ensemble Hespèrion XXI in 1974 as a way of recovering and disseminating the rich and fascinating musical repertoire prior to the 19th century on the basis of historical criteria and the use of original instruments. Today the ensemble is central to the understanding of the music of the period between the Middle Ages and the Baroque.
