La Capella Reial de Catalunya


JS Bach and Vivaldi’s' Magnificat's: desert island repertoire to illustrate the splendour of the orchestra Le Concert des Nations and choir of La Capella Reial de Catalunya. Jordi Savall offers a vivid and striking performance of these two masterpieces, recorded live at the Royal Chapel in Versailles in 2013. Each of them is introduced by a concerto by the same composer in the same tonality.

The superlative performance of Pierre Hantaï in the Concerto BWV1052 is another jewel to the crown of this album.

“with performers of this calibre…the performances were always going to be impressive. All fans of Savall will want the set.” Early Music Review, February 2015

“it’s a win-win situation with this disc in terms of programming. The young singers are quite fine, and Savall leads a quality performance.” Audiophile Audition, 6th February 2015

“To watch as well as hear two outstanding Baroque Magnificats is a thrilling experience. Jordi Savall's forces are in fine form, his soloists matched yet distinctively characterised...Savall paces the Magnificats to sustain the continuity of the text, despite the musical independence of each verse...the overall exuberance, technicaly control and commitment of the whole ensemble are infectious from the start.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2015 ****

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.

“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

“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

Following the success of the albums L’ Orchestre de Louis XIII (Philidor l’Aisné) and L’ Orchestre du Roi Soleil (Lully), Jordi Savall delivers another dynastic opus consisting of music by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Le Concert des Nations sparkles in these four orchestral suites which document the genius of the French composer and Jordi Savall’s affinity with the repertoire of the the XVIIIth century.

“This is dance music of dizzying variety and instrumental colour...There's lively, rumbustious playing from Le Concert des Nations...The angular contredanses with their quirky intervals, and the magnificent chaconnes, are splendid – the one for Naïs (1748), involving dancing athletes, boxers, runners and wrestlers, is made for the Olympics opening.” The Observer, 19th June 2011

“Jordi Savall and his ebullient Baroque orchestra, Le Concert des Nations, have released recordings of the music Philidor wrote for Louis XIII, and Lully for Louis XIV. All is eclipsed by the double-CD of Rameau’s fabulously spirited rococo pieces for Louis XV’s orchestra...these suites have a tunefulness, an instrumental diversity and a quirky joyousness that even the most curmudgeonly Anglo-Saxon soul will find hard to resist.” The Times, 18th June 2011 ****

“The exhilarating effect of this joyous music could scarcely be better conveyed. Savall has chosen his “suites” to reflect the astonishing variety of Rameau’s instrumentation and inventiveness as a composer of ballet music...The wonderfully windy music for Les Boréades (sons of Boréas, the north wind) culminates in a sizzling contredanse très vive — guaranteed to set the toes tapping.” Sunday Times, 26th June 2011 *****

“The Chaconne ending Les Indes Galantes shows Savall's breadth, roving with equal conviction from pastoral sensuality to blazing, robust militarism. The whiplash strings of the Nais Overture free an infectious rhythm and the off-beat timpani create thrilling thunder in a voluminous acoustic.” Classic FM Magazine, September 2011 ****

“With a large and varied orchestra and (optional) surround sound, Jordi Savall revels in the unmatched opulence, extravagance and scale of mid-18th century France...The music is divorced from its dramatic context and the visual accompaniment of costume, dancing and scenery, but is speaks splendidly for itself, displaying Rameau's kaleidoscopic orchestration and arresting devices...A magnificent production - the high Baroque doesn't get higher than this” BBC Music Magazine, October 2011 *****

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

Alia Vox presents three composers in three masterpieces based on a cornerstone of the Bible, the psalm 'Dixit Dominus' in the latest programme from Jordi Savall.

Following the critically acclaimed 'Magnificat & Concerti' two years ago, 'Dixit' highlights the full maturity of his ensembles.

The vivid orchestral colours, the ideal spacing of the instruments, the effortless virtuosity of the choir, the bright recorded sound bringing out the detail within the works all prove that Jordi Savall has established a new standard for the recording of 18th Century music.

“glorious singing and playing of irrepressable effervescence ... Superb SACD sound and a lavishly designed booklet” Choir & Organ, July 2017

“The performances of all three pieces have an overall character that contrasts with the tendency these days for hard-driven interpretations…an individualistic and essentially musical approach, as one might expect from Savall” Gramophone Magazine, January 2017

Jordi Savall examines 500 years of history in this portrait of a city that symbolises like no other the fruitful, and at the same time, conflictual encounter of the three monotheistic religions. The succession of the Zirid, Almoravid, Almohad and Nasrid dynasties, their relationship with the neighbouring Christian kingdoms and the often precarious situation of the Jews (the first inhabitants of this area) are reflected in this wide musical fresco, in which each culture displays its most advanced refinement.

“imaginatively chosen, memorably performed, well documented with essays and illustrations.” Record Review, 11th June 2016

“Here is a fascinating range of music Islamic, Jewish and Christian, charting half a millennium of history...The performances under Savall’s direction are always evocative, and some are touching and some vibrant.” Sunday Times, 3rd July 2016

“A classic Jordi Savall project with Iberian cultural history lesson and loads of misty reverb attached...the performances are full of finesse and intensity...What stands out for me is the Mozarabic polyphony – vibrant, poised singing from La Capella Reial de Catalunya.” The Guardian, 28th July 2016 ****

“The celebration of musical interconnectedness is manifest in the smoothness of Savall’s programme and its execution … Heart-rending moments of beauty abound such as Manuel Forcano’s (director, Institute Ramon Llull) recitation concerning the forced conversion of the Jews in 1148.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2016

“The music itself is packed full of discoveries and treasures which often reveal themselves through juxtaposition … The choral work is also typically excellent … In short, this is a breathtaking achievement. It’s the kind of disc that often left me in quiet astonishment not just at its ambition, artistry or skill, but at the way it tries to further the human story and enrich the experience of us all. Bravo!” MusicWeb International, September 2016

“As ever, Savall points up the sources’ colour, vitality, expressiveness and socio-political context in an exciting, fascinating and utterly beguiling programme … The singers are superb, displaying gorgeous timbres and honest emotional dimensions … the realisations are consistently moving and beautiful. Even the spoken texts sound mellifluous and resonant.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2016 *****

“In yet another Tardis of a disc, time-traveller extraordinare Jordi Savall packs five centuries and seven epochs of Granada’s history into a haunting, atmospheric, evocative, heart-rending, -stopping, -warming by turns melange of three medieval cultures: Arabic, Christian and Jewish … this SACD with (as ever) stunningly beautiful booklet enthrals, enchants and demands total attention.” Choir & Organ, November/December 2016
