- Jordi Savall owes one of his greatest recording successes to the album 'La Lira d’Espéria', released in 1994 under the Astrée label.
This new recording, 'La Lira d’Espéria II', features Galicia, a Spanish region with rich musical traditions, including a Celtic one, and some remarkably well preserved manuscripts dating from the High Middle Ages which provide the scholarly basis for Jordi Savall’s performance of pieces that are full of fantasy and colour.
As ever in the company of percussionist Pedro Estevan, he plays a vielle, a rebec (a medieval stringed instrument) and a rebab: a cousin of the rebec’s whose sound box is covered with stretched skin, shown on the album cover.
