Folías Antiguas & Criollas – From the Ancient World to the New World
Grammy Award-winning “early music superstar” (New York Times) Jordi Savall, and two acclaimed ensembles, Hespèrion XXI and Tembembe Ensamble Continuo, perform at QPAC’s Concert Hall for one night only.
Multi-instrumentalist, virtuoso, conductor, scholar, teacher and record label director, Jordi Savall defies categorisation. In a career spanning five decades, he has rescued forgotten medieval, Renaissance and Baroque treasures from neglect and obscurity and given them back for all to enjoy.
In Folías Antiguas & Criollas, the vibrant music of ancient Spain and Mexico is brought to life in a performance that blurs borders between genres, past and present, east and west – all the while keeping Savall’s Spanish/Catalan roots at the heart of his music.
“…outstandingly beautiful.” Gramophone
ABOUT JORDI SAVALL
Early music master Jordi Savall is one of the world’s greatest and most adventurous musicians. He created a wide audience for the viola da gamba, an instrument so refined that it takes us to the very brink of silence. His career as a concert performer, teacher, researcher and creator of new projects, both musical and cultural, make him one of the principal architects of the current revaluation of historical music.
