Jordi Savall

  • Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Montreal Canada (map)

Jordi Savall, the world’s most celebrated gambist, has brought humanity, unique artistry, and virtuosity to his tireless exploration of early music that has spanned half a century. A conductor of three ensembles—including Hespèrion XXI with which he performs for this engagement—his 250 recordings have earned him six Grammy nominations. His ensemble, featuring Manfredo Kraemer, violin; Marc Hantaï, flute; Philippe Pierlot, bass viol; Rolf Lislevand, theorbo and Pierre Hantaï, harpsichord will play the music inspired by the 1992 French hit film Tous le matins du monde (starring Gérard Depardieu) by Marin Marais, Couperin, Lully, Rameau and others.
