Spirit Of Armenia

Savall Jordi Hesperion Xxi

This album is a tribute to Armenia and to the Armenian musicians who played alongside Jordi Savall and his wife Montserrat Figueras over the years. The repertoire consists alternately of very lively pieces and more contemplative ones, all of them beautifully played on traditional instruments, including the ?duduk?, a flute with a deeply moving sound originating from a time before times.

Jordi Savall unveils this music with his faultless musical flair and an endless curiosity, as testified in the lavishly documented and illustrated booklet.


The prolific Jordi Savall isback again with anotherfine recording. On thisnew disc he arranges bothanonymous material andmusic by named composersfrom the fourteenth to the twentiethcenturies. The music featured here ishypnotic and the playing from all concernedis excellent. Aside from Savall’s fine andprecise performance, it’s the contribution ofArmenian musicians Georgi Minassyan and Haig Sarikouyoumdjian on the duduk,Gaguik Mouradian on the kamancha andArmen Badalyan on the dap that elevatethis album to something very specialindeed.
