Jordi Savall and the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra

Living traditions

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.

Big in every way

‘El Greco to Velázquez’ at the MFA
Men in inky darkness. Men without women (save for the Blessed Virgin). Men in splendor, men in ecstasy, men without smiles. Men as saints but not as sinners.

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.

Fire and air

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.
