sat 28 feb 2015
Theme: Early Music

The Series Jordi Savall on Monday 23 February (19.00-20.00 )  is devoted to the most recent cd from Savall, the double cd ‘Guerre et Paix 1614-1714’, containing compositions on the theme of " War and Peace ".


Accompanying the cd is an almost 400 page long book with lots of historic background about 17th century Europe, which was about war, conflict, crisis, peace and ultimately reconciliation. It gives an excellent picture of this period of European history full of conflicts and wars.

By way of musical examples Savall shows how the 17th century was one long chain of sad wars and conflicts between ethnic groups in Europe.


Episode 2 will be broadcast on Monday 23rd March with music from this double cd.
