When the film Tous les matins du monde premiered nearly 30 years ago, the music of two French composer-gambists—Jean de Sainte-Colombe and Marin Marais—was introduced to wider audiences. While Gérard Depardieu’s portrayal of Marais was fascinating, Jordi Savall provided the musical “voice” of the composer and introduced the astoundingly beautiful music of the early French Baroque to many. Savall and his Le Concert des Nations performed the soundtrack music, and they return to this sublime repertoire in a concert that features poetic music for solo and multiple viols, graceful dances, dramatic character pieces, and more.
