La Capella Reial de Catalunya

Created by Montserrat Figueras and Jordi Savall, the ensemble is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the polyphonic vocal heritage of the Middle Ages and the pre-19th century Hispanic and European Golden Age.

Le Concert des Nations

Orchestra

This orchestra, founded by Jordi Savall and his wife Montserrat Figueras in 1989, is a sounding legend. It is made up of first-rate specialists in early music - and is constantly committed to the ideal of a lively synthesis of historically informed performance practice and personal appropriation of art.

Jordi Savall

Viola da Gamba & Conductor

There is no early music fan who does not know the name Jordi Savall. There is no award that the "Ambassador of the European Union for Cultural Dialogue" has not won in the course of his world career. So it is all the more enjoyable that the Catalan, born in 1941, has been one of the Styriarte's closest and most loyal friends for decades.

Savall and Monteverdi

The shores of the Aegean Sea echo with the laments of the abandoned Ariadne. Jordi Savall conducts Monteverdi’s famous Lamento as a counterpart to the Styriarte opera 2022, “Arianna” by Fux. The crusader Tancredi also has to suffer the fatal consequences of love at the gates of Jerusalem: not recognizing her, he slays his own lover, the Muslim Clorinda, in a duel. Love and war are the contradictory forces in Monteverdi’s Eighth Book of Madrigals.
