“Here, finally, was a man worth celebrating. Savall is not only a performer of genius but also a conductor, a scholar, a teacher.”—The New Yorker

Le Nuove Musiche: The Baroque Revolution in Europe (1560-1660)

For more than 50 years, Jordi Savall, one of the most versatile musical personalities of his generation, has rescued musical gems from the obscurity of neglect for all to enjoy. A tireless early music researcher, he interprets and performs the repertory both as a viola da gamba virtuoso and a conductor. His activities as a performer, teacher, researcher, and creator of new musical and cultural projects have made him a leading figure in the reappraisal of historical music throughout the world. Joined by his ensemble, Hespèrion XXI, he makes a highly anticipated Athens debut with a program of music from long ago, full of emotion and beauty.

Join us for a free pre-performance talk by Peter Lane in Ramsey Concert Hall from 6:45-7:15 pm.
