The Golden Age of European Consort Music, 1550-1750

Following the tireless and invaluable work of recovering and reassessing long-forgotten medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music, which has long been forgotten, the Catalan conductor Jordi Savall and his Hespèrion XXI present a programme of consort music, set between 1550 and 1750. Including composers such as Dowland, Purcell and Bach, among many others less well known, the focus is on “the most beautiful pieces from the second part of the Renaissance to the Baroque period”, according to Savall, played by a formation of violas da gamba, the instrument in which the musician specialised.
