Jordi Savall / Krieg und Frieden

Lux aeterna

Modern political borders in Europe are the result of centuries of conflict. Between 1613 and 1713, for example, Ottoman conquests, the Thirty Years War and the War of the Spanish Succession led to an almost constant state of tension in this part of the world. The highly acclaimed viola da gamba player, musicologist and ensemble founder Jordi Savall has chosen to represent this century by combining sacred and secular works from different countries, cultures and religions in a musical fresco, uniting human destinies from all sides together in music. For Savall, who has been named a UNESCO Artist for Peace, this is not only an artistic statement but also a political one, and it comes at a time when the ‘project of Europe’ again appears to be in a precarious position.
