Jordi Savall, a Catalan viola de gamba soloist, conductor and musicologist, specialising in ancient music, is returning to the Arriaga Theatre with the musician and composer Pedro Estevan.

The programme includes cult music pieces from European and Eastern traditions, taking us on a journey through the mutual influences that turn music into a framework for dialogue and union throughout the Mediterranean.

The writer Amin Maalouf, born in Beirut to a Lebanese father and French mother, raised in Cairo, resident in Paris, member of the French Academy and winner of the Prince of Asturias Prize for Letters, said:

“Listening to these Eastern and Western musical forms brought together with great subtlety by Jordi Savall is not a run-of-the-mill experience. Because in addition to aesthetic emotion, he brings an even more intense feeling, one of taking communion, as if by magic, with a reconciled humanity.

“…You have to go much further beyond a dialogue of cultures and beliefs, towards a dialogue of souls. Perhaps this, at the start of the 21st Century, is the irreplaceable mission of art. And that is exactly what we feel when hearing these magnificent melodies from such different times and lands.”
