Jordi Savall, a master of historical interpretation and a true virtuoso of the viola da gamba, will lead an ensemble of exceptionally talented musicians, transporting the audience through time and across cultures. This unique performance promises an unforgettable experience, blending the musical traditions of Al-Andalus and the Ancient Hesperia.
Al-Andalus, with its rich history of Islamic, Christian, and Jewish influences, has long been a source of inspiration for musicians and scholars alike. The Ancient Hesperia, on the other hand, represents the mythical lands of the Western Mediterranean, shrouded in tales of exploration and adventure.
This collaborative event is a testament to the enduring power of music to transcend borders and connect diverse cultures. By presenting Al-Andalus and the Ancient Hesperia in a single, harmonious composition, Jordi Savall invites audiences to rediscover the shared heritage and influences that have shaped the music of the Mediterranean region.
Tickets for this incredible journey through history, art and music are available now. To secure a seat for “Al-Andalus and the Ancient Hesperia conducted by Jordi Savall,” please visit Ticket Link.
