Jordi Savall

Jordi Savall and his famous ensemble combine forces with the Mexican folklore group Tembembe Ensamble Continuo to present Folias Antiguas y Criollas: From the Ancient World to the New World. Special guest harpist Andrew Lawrence King joins the ensemble of seven, with works by Diego Ortiz, Pedro Guerrero Moresca, Código Trujillo, spiced with Colonial and folk music from all over South America.

Hesperion XXI is presented in collaboration with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).

“The term ‘early-music superstar’ is surely an oxymoron. But in the most understated of repertory, on the most subdued of instruments and in the most self-effacing way, Jordi Savall comes close to being one.” – The New York Times

Early Music Guild would like to thank Acción Cultural Española for collaborating on this project.
