Jordi Savall

To celebrate Marin Marais' 350th birthday, Jordi Savall has made his first complete recording of Marais' most intricate work: the Suitte d'un Goût Etranger. As indicated in the detailed liner notes, these 33 pieces offer the quintessence of the art of Marais, with fascinating titles like La Rêveuse (The Dreamer), La Singulière (The Special), La Bizarre (The Weird), La Superbe (The Proud), including the final Badinage, full of nostalgia. No other work in the baroque repertoire surpasses this fabulous 'Suitte'.

Vivaldi:

Flute Concerto, Op. 10 No. 1 in F major, RV 433 'La tempesta di mare'


This double album is an invitation to explore the forces of nature, so vividly depicted by the composers at the turn of the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries.

With this stunning (and first) recording of Jean-Fery Rebel’s Les Elements, Jordi Savall displays his unmatched vision of the baroque orchestral repertoire, proving that authenticity and timbral beauty aren’t mutually exclusive.

New recordings of works by Locke, Vivaldi, Marais, Telemann and Rameau - a splendidly varied and expressively wide-ranging selection - is a welcome addition to the existing landmark recordings made by Savall in this repertoire.

Pellucid engineering complements the live performances perfectly, offering warmth without excessive resonance, and letting the players shine.

“Jordi Savall’s inventive programming explores earth, air, fire and water. The ferment of Rameau’s Tonnerre from Hippolyte meets the cooler but highly original Curtain Tune from Matthew Locke’s Tempest and Vivaldi’s bubbling Tempesta di mare concerto. Hidden in Marin Marais’ Alcione, with its tremendous Chaconne, is the surprise of a march that became a popular Christmas carol. Le Concert des Nations plays with typical verve and energy” The Guardian, 10th January 2016 ****

“a live recording of an excellent programme with the theme of musical ‘tone painting'...I enjoyed the discs very much.” Early Music Review, 24th January 2016

“Jordi Savall directs with typical grandeur and depth of tone. The subject-matter means plenty of work for the two-man wind machine and rumbling drum department, but there is exquisite contrast too in, say, the fluty stillness of Marais’s Ritournelle or the exquisitely graceful ‘sleeping Thetis’ Sarabande of the Telemann.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2016

“All through there are striking moments with Le Concert des Nations weaving some wonderful sounds with lovely textures and harmonies, particularly towards the end … Jordi Savall has gathered together a terrific collection of music to which he and Le Concert des Nations bring life and buoyancy, colour and great textures” The Classical Reviewer, 6th February 2016

“a very rewarding exploration of how several Baroque composers treated the themes of nature and the elements.” MusicWeb International, May 2016

Together with 'Sémélé', 'Alcione' is the only opera composed by Marin Marais. The first first performance took place at the Théâtre du Palais Royal in Paris on February 18, 1706. Shortly after that, Marin Marais decided to gather the most beautiful tunes, including the famous 'Tempest', into four suites.

Le Concert des Nations and Jordi Savall fully reveal the colours of this vivid score. As you might expect, Alia Vox have granted this Heritage reissue a state-of-the-art multichannel remastering and a richly documented booklet.

“These four suites show that Marais was a fine orchestrator and knew how to write descriptive music. These qualities come off very well in this 1993 recording.” MusicWeb International, 9th April 2014

“very fine.” Early Music Review, April 2014

“Few readers will be able to resist either the graceful charm of this music or the elegant gestures of the members of Le Concert Des Nations.” Early Music Today, Autumn 2014

Marin Marais: Pieces for Viol from the Five Books

Marin Marais: Pieces for Viol from the Five Books


Premier Livre de pieces de Viole (1686), Pieces a deux violes (with Christophe Coin) – recorded 1978

Deuxieme Livre de pieces de viole (1701) – recorded 1975

Troisieme Livre de pieces de viole( 1711) – recorded 1983

Quatrieme Livre de pieces de viole (1717), Suite d’un Gout etranger – recorded 1977

Cinquieme Livre de pieces de viole (1725) – recorded 1983


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

Between 1975 and 1983, Jordi Savall recorded five albums including the most beautiful pieces from each of the five ‘Books of Pieces for the Viol’ composed by Marin Marais between 1686 and 1725. A silence of nearly 250 years came to an end. A repertoire - and even better, an instrument - returned from oblivion.

The memory of a composer had never been so closely linked to the performing art of amusician. 35 years after the beginning of this history-making enterprise, the five Astree albums are offered in a remastered sound, that fully rewards the genius of Marin Marais and Jordi Savall. Luxuriously documented – as always with Alia Vox - this anthology is a must-have for any Baroque music lover.

The HERITAGE collection, launched by Alia Vox in 2007 with Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine (AVSA9855), aims to offer a fresh vision of the recordings that Jordi Savall, Montserrat Figueras and their ensembles Hespèrion XX, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert des Nations made under the Astrée label between 1977 and 1996. This unique discographic legacy of almost 70 albums, which include the most emblematic recordings of the Early Music renaissance, will be systematically remastered and edited with the meticulous care that has been Alia Vox’s hallmark since the label was founded in 1998. Both past and present productions featuring Alia Vox artists’ performances will thus be available under a single banner, allowing listeners to measure the breadth and continuity of their work over more than 30 years.
