On April 29th, April 30th and May 1st, Jordi Savall will be conducting the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra at L’Auditori. With Bach, Mozart and Händel featuring in the concert programme, the OBC rarely perform a repertoire as old as this, and they will be led this weekend by the internationally-renowned Spaniard.
Savall is a conductor, viol player and composer. He has been one of the major figures in the field of Western early music since the Seventies, and is largely responsible for reviving the use of viol family instruments (notably the viola da gamba) in contemporary performance and recording. His characteristic repertoire features features medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music, although he has occasionally ventured into the Classical and even the Romantic periods.
