Jordi Savall is one of the most versatile musical personalities of his generation. For over fifty years, he has been introducing the world to musical wonders that were forgotten, abandoned to obscurity and indifference. He discovers and performs these ancient musical pieces, on his viola da gamba and as a conductor. His activities as a concert performer, teacher, researcher and instigator of new projects, both musical and cultural, place him among the primary actors in the phenomenon of rehabilitating historic music.
