Jordi Savall, director La Capella Reial de Catalunya & Hesperios XXI - February 7, 2020 8pm
In the 16th and 17th centuries, art and culture flourished in a “Golden Century” across the cultural melting pot of the Iberian Peninsula. Painting, literature, architecture, and music all thrived during this period of political and cultural ascendancy. One of the world’s most enduringly gifted artists, legendary viol virtuoso Jordi Savall showcases the musical splendor of his Catalan homeland. Featuring his GRAMMY-winning vocal ensemble, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, and his famous consort of virtuoso instrumentalists, Hespèrion XXI, Savall leads a vibrant celebration of this spectacular music.
