Early Delights

Series about and with Catalan gambist and conductor Jordi Savall.

Today we start a new series titled ‘On Cloud Nine’. In it we bring you profane music: dance, songs, instrumental, some happy, some melancholic, from all over Europe. This episode we start with early baroque music from Monteverdi and Renaissance music from several French song composers. Followed by old and newly released works from the 18th century.

This episode mostly focusses on a CD filled with violin sonatas in a French-Italian style, by violist Théotime Langlois de Swarte accompanied by William Christie: “Générations”.
