Jordi Savall owes one of his greatest recording successes to the album 'La Lira d’Espéria', released in 1994 under the Astrée label.

This new recording, 'La Lira d’Espéria II', features Galicia, a Spanish region with rich musical traditions, including a Celtic one, and some remarkably well preserved manuscripts dating from the High Middle Ages which provide the scholarly basis for Jordi Savall’s performance of pieces that are full of fantasy and colour. As ever in the company of percussionist Pedro Estevan, he plays a vielle, a rebec (a medieval stringed instrument) and a rebab: a cousin of the rebec’s whose sound box is covered with stretched skin, shown on the album cover.

CD Review

18th October 2014

“La Lira d’Esperia II: Galicia is what it says on the sleeve, rustic playing, a pleasingly resonant SACD recording and, as ever, copious notes and illustrations.”

Early Music Review

20th February 2015

“He [Savall] comes up with something that not only seems very true to the spirit of the older music, but is great listening … As you would expect, the playing is fantastic, spontaneous, brilliant … Savall encourages us to consider the most ancient of our musical traditions in the context of living folk music.”
