The FIMA 2019 – Algarve Classical Festival presents “The Celtic Viola”, with Jordi Savall & Hespèrion XXI. The eminent Catalan artist Jordi Savall describes this program as a dialogue between Man and Nature, and between the Old and the New World. The repertoire is a mix of traditional Irish and Scottish songs that Savall has teamed up with in several Suites. Although Savall and the Hespèrion XXI group have consolidated their worldwide reputation as interpreters of Baroque music, this is yet another example of their most successful incursions into 'ethnic' songs, which result is a perfect balance between tradition and modernity!
