The Phoenix Network:
Jordi Savall and the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra
"The Celtic Viol" — the title of the Boston Early Music Festival concert Catalan gambist Jordi Savall gave yesterday evening at Jordan Hall — looks like an oxymoron, since Irish and Scottish music is almost by definition traditional and popular and the viol is associated with "serious" early classical music.

Review: Jordi Savall and Hespèrion XXI
“Jerusalem: The City of the Two Peaces,” live At Sanders Theatre, May 5, 2010
"You are here to kneel/Where prayer has been valid.” “Here” for T.S. Eliot was a church in Huntingdonshire, but it’s hard to imagine a place where prayer has been more valid than Jerusalem, or a place where more people have died for their faith.

‘El Greco to Velázquez’ at the MFA

Measure for measure
Ensemble Doulce Mémoire, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake , Robert Spano’s Sibelius , H&H’s St. Matthew Passion
“Great Ball at the Court of France,” which Ensemble Doulce Mémoire presented at the First Congregational Church in Cambridge last Friday, under the auspices of the Boston Early Music Festival, was a reminder that classical music used to be all about two popular forms, song and dance.

Rocking the South End
“Encounters of Fire and Air: Music of Old Spain and the New World” was the title of the program Catalan gambist Jordi Savall brought to the Jesuit Urban Center in the South End, and as anyone who has heard the Alia Vox CD in which it was grounded could've predicted, it rocked.

Jordi Savall ignites the musical elements
“Music,” Jordi Savall writes in the liner note to one of his latest discs, Du temps et de l’instant (“Of Time and the Moment”), is “the true living history of humanity.” One could call Savall the true living history of music.
