Series Jordi Savall

thu 6 dec 2012 15:00 

Series about and with Catalan gambist and conductor Jordi Savall, episode 44. ‘Armenian Spirit’ is the most recent CD publication of Jordi Savall.

‘Armenian Spirit’ highlighted: the most recent CD release at AliaVox, Jordi Savall’s private label. 
Despite its tragic history, Armenia managed to keep its national identity, not in the least by the support of music. 
This music is characterised strongly by its melancholy. Not just because a lot of music is in minor, but the typical Armenian instruments, like the duduk and the kemence, also have a very deep expressiveness.
Complemented with Jordi Savall’s rebec and gamba, this CD brings such a great atmosphere that ‘Armenian Spirit’ has become a new milestone in Savall’s oeuvre.
