Alfia Bakieva

Violin

Born in Novosibirsk, Russia, the multi-instrumentalist currently lives in Salzburg. Especially as a violinist, she impresses with her versatility and inspires with both Tatar music with her folk music ensemble Ekiyat and with the Argentinian tango orchestra Rascasuelos, and as a soloist in baroque music ensembles such as Jordi Savall's Concert des Nations.

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.

concertos for young women

Men are the heroes in Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”: sleepy shepherds and wild huntsmen, drunk farmers and high-spirited ice skaters. However, these violin concertos were played by women, the famous orchestra of the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, to which Maestro Vivaldi was the only man granted access. The red-haired priest wrote his most famous concertos for young women who were named after their instruments because they were nameless orphans and foundlings. In dedicating his Vivaldi programme to them, Jordi Savall makes his Concert des Nations an exclusively female orchestra.
