La Capella Reial de Catalunya & Le Concert des Nations, Jordi Savall

This live recording made on January 31st, 2002 at the Liceu Theatre in Barcelona is already a cornerstone of any Monteverdi discography. It has been released on DVD by Opus Arte (but is now unavailable in most countries and reaches pretty high scores on the market place...), with a slightly different editing. This new and original multichannel mastering reveals the full scale of the inspiration of Jordi Savall and his ensembles, as well as the soloists, who include the late Montserrat Figueras, Furio Zanasi and Sara Mingardo.

“Savall’s performance is bold and full-bodied, especially in the warm choral singing and orchestral playing. The soloists are more variable, often placed far back in the sonic picture...the finest singing is from Sara Mingardo as a plangent Messenger.” The Observer, 14th June 2015 ***

“The singing and playing is of a very high standard.” Early Music Review, 1st July 2015

“Savall's ideas may not satisfy everyone, but there's never a hint of formulaic complacency, and this live performance is an engaging alternative view to experience alongside the best studio versions.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2015

“This is an opulent L’Orfeo rich in drama and contrast; the complete musico-dramatic article, utterly engrossing. Savall achieves a nigh-pefect balance between ravishing resonance and sound on the one hand, and gripping, pacey narrative on the other … a sumptuous production that must have been the ticket of the year.” Early Music Today, March/May 2016

Montserrat Figueras (soprano), Francesc Garrigosa (tenor), Arianna Savall (soprano, arpa doppia), Ferran Savall (voice) & Jordi Savall (conductor and viola da gamba)

This reissue in the Heritage series from 1988 enables us to hear Montserrat Figueras singing the repertoire she embodies like nobody else: traditional Catalan songs. This performance is the natural continuation of her exploration of the great works connected to Catalonia, e.g. the Song of the Sybil or the Red Book of Montserrat (Gregorian manuscript). On this shore of Mediterranean Sea, traditional and ‘classical’ repertoires are connected in a very intimate way. This album is a landmark of in the career of Montserrat Figueras: her innovative style of interpretation, characterised by great fidelity to the historical sources, combined with an extraordinary creative and expressive power, sounds at its best.

Suite Celta


Arianna Savall (vocal, triple harp, gothic harp, celtic harp), Petter Johansen (vocal), Ferran Savall (vocal and theorbo), Javier Mas (12-strings guitar and lute), Mario Mas (guitar), Bjørn Kjellemyr (double bass), Dimitri Psonis (santur, bouzuki) & Pedro Estevan, David Mayoral (percussion)

"Based on a taoist tale (Prince Peiwoh playing a wondrous harp, whose stubborn spirit should be tamed but by the greatest of musicians), this album represents a breathing-in of various traditions which have helped me to create and give expression to my musical world, and one of the sources on which I have drawn most deeply is early music and the art of improvisation: an infinite source of inspiration. From the time that I began to compose and sing songs, it became more and more natural to me to accompany myself on the triple harp, and I was fascinated by the depth and subtlety of the Italian Baroque harp. It has a rich, enveloping sonority which is unlike that of any other harp.There are moments on the album when we hear a small Gothic harp, with its warm, remote and yet direct sound; and the most ancient of them all is a Celtic harp, with its magical, ancestral sounds. Peiwoh brings together the various languages, colours and sounds that I heard as a child growing up in Switzerland, at home with my parents, friends and other musicians.And each of them expresses and encapsulates a different part of myself. Each language has its own rhythm and melody, which it modulates in its own distinct way, influencing and inspiring the character and style of the song. Poetry is one of the essential aspects of this musical journey. Peiwoh leads us to the process of maturing, which has sometimes been painful and dramatic: life contains within it "little deaths", as in the poem by García Lorca (Song of the little death). In his short but intense poemMy heart, die or sing, Juan Ramón. Jiménez shows how music and life overcome fear, giving us the courage to walk on, as if our awareness of the proximity of death gave us a heightened awareness of life and its infinite possibilities."

Did you know that most Alia Vox albums were recorded between 1 and 4 am? Not only because of tight recording schedules, but also because the night creates an very special quality of silence... This double album is the best possible tribute to Alia Vox' short but intense history.

Not just an 'anniversary CD': it is a fascinating musical journey, based not only on existing material, but also on unreleased recordings (Charpentier - CD2 track 5) and on future albums (CD2 track 1 was recorded for the upcoming project Jerusalem).

Recordings from the Astrée catalogue are also included in this definitive overview of a major component of Jordi Savall's creative process: the night.

“As we expect of this team, Musica Notturna is sumptuously packaged, diligently researched and superlatively-well performed.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2009 ****

“Jordi Savall's discs can always be relied on to widen listeners' musical horizons in the most enjoyable way possible” The Telegraph

“Figueras is in her element. She can be dramatic or passionate, facetious or sorrowful; a young girl who wants her freedom and is only restrained with difficulty; and a saintly soul in a mystical union with God. Highly recommended.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2006

“there's an other-worldly, timeless quality to the voice that seems to encapsulate that strange, semi-conscious place before deep sleep where anything is possible in the imagination...In fact the whole disc is spell-binding, from ancient Sephardic and middle-eastern tradition, through 16th century England to Pärt in 2002” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 1st April 2003
