About Jordi Savall

Jordi Savall is among the leading instrumentalists and conductors of the European, early music scene, specializing in Renaissance, Baroque, and Medieval music. With his wife, Montserrat Figueras, and other musicians he founded the ensemble Hespèrion XX in 1974, later changing its name to Hespèrion XXI. Savall became internationally known through his playing on the soundtrack of Tous les Matins du Monde (All the Mornings of the World). He has recorded well over 150 albums. In 1996, he introduced his own AliaVox label. Some of his recordings explore specific Baroque and Renaissance repertories, but just as often, he attempts to construct a musical background for historical personages and events, and to explore the connections among music, wider culture, and history. ~ TiVo Staff
