Ortiz, D: Trattado de glosas

Ortiz, D: Trattado de glosas


Jordi Savall (bass viol), Ton Koopman (harpsichord, organ), Lorenz Duftschmid(violone), Rolf Lislevand (vielle), Paolo Pandolfo (bass viol) & Andrew Lawrence-King (harp)

Published in Rome in 1553 and re-discovered during the 20th-Century, the 'Tratado de Glosas' by Spanish composer Diego Ortiz offers, through many variations called 'recercadas', an unmatched panorama of the instrumental music of its time.

The reissue of this 1990 album in the Heritage series enables us to listen to one of Jordi Savall’s best accomplishments, alongside Ton Koopman and Rolf Lislevand. On various themes, including 'La Folia' and 'Doulce memoire', Diego Ortiz and Jordi Savall demonstrate their science and their spirit of invention for our greatest entertainment!

“Whether for the short, four-part suite for solo gamba or the lithe but weighty dances of the final ‘Recercadas sobre tenores’ the music of Tratado de Glosas is both lyrical and melodically imaginative… A fine album” Early Music Today, December 2013

“Savall plays this music with unmatchable sympathy, his accompanists with great freedom and equivalent brilliance, and it is spell-binding- a masterly recording, essential in any collection” Early Music Review, December 2013

“The virtuoso Jordi Savall surveys Diego Ortiz's treatise on decoration, variation and improvisation (Rome, 1553). Wonderful.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2014 *****

1728. with figured bass by Mr F.C.


Première suite: Prélude, Allemande légère, Courante, Sarabande grave, Gavotte, Gigue, Passacaille ou Chaconne

Deuxième suite: Prélude, Fuguéte, Pompe funèbre, La Chemise blanche


Jordi Savall (bass viol 7-string, anon, French, XVII century), Ton Koopman (harpsichord, Gilbert des Ruisseaux, end XVII century) & Ariane Maurette (bass viol Barak Norman, London 1697)

The first album made by Jordi Savall for the Astrée label!

After Mr Marin Marais and Sainte Colombe, Jordi Savall presents another summit of music for viola da gamba in his Heritage collection. This 1975 disc confirmed Couperin as a master, if proof were needed, and of his affinitities with the masters of French music.

This remastered high definition multi-channel SACD and very informative booklet complete this reissue of a must-have of the Savall oeuvre.

“Savall and co play with a warmth, a passion and a sense of freedom unsurpassed since.” Sunday Times, 16th December 2012

“Although still at the beginning of his career as a viol player, Savall, serenely supported by Ton Koopman, plays with consummate mastery of Couperin's style. He caresses the notes, and shapes and moulds the phrases, adding just the right amount of silence, allowing the music to breathe. However, some tempi now seems a little slow.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2013

“handsomely packaged with excellent documentation … his [Savall] account of the ‘Sarabande grave’ has all the requisite poetry and melancholy” Classical Music, June 2013

“Jordi Savall’s interpretations of the two suites, which comprise Couperin’s Pièces de Viole, are free, spontaneous and sensible to the elusive nuances of what Couperin called ‘le bon goût’.” Early Music Today

These albums were recorded in 1976 and 1992 (the latter right after the tremendous success of the movie “Tous les Matins du Monde”.

Venite, videte

with Ton Koopman


This set gathers 2 albums released in 1990 and 1994.

Each of them definitely established Montserrat Figueras as one of the best performers of Claudio Monteverdi’s vocal music. At this time, she developed an innovative style of interpretation, characterised by great fidelity to historical sources, combined with an extraordinary creative and expressive power, that has exerted a decisive influence on the whole historical music movement.

Vocal music before 1800 required a new technical and stylistic approach capable of restoring to the beauty and emotion of the voice, that most human of all forms of expression, the necessary balance between singing and declamation, with an emphasis on the poetic and spiritual dimension of the text.

She is accompanied by Jordi Savall on CD1 and Ton Koopman on CD2.

Bach, J S:

Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 1-6 BWV1046-1051 (complete)


Booklet : English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Catalan

With star-soloists including Fabio Biondi & Pierre Hantaï this double album, recorded in 1991, is a landmark in Bach’s discography (as all other Bach /Savall recordings, by the way...). The orchestra Le Concert des Nations sounds richer than ever and, as you have come to expect from Alia Vox, this reissue is also a luxury masterly-remastered double digipack. There are many other versions of the Brandenburg Concertos but Alia Vox would like to underline that Jordi Savall's recording is regarded as the best recording ever made. In the December 2009 issue of the French magazine Classica, this album was chosen as the THE recording of the Brandenburg Concertos.
