Product Description


technical comment

  • This double album is an invitation to explore the forces of nature, so vividly depicted by the composers at the turn of the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. With this stunning (and Jordi's first) recording of Jean-Fery Rebel’s Les Elements, Savall displays his unmatched vision of the baroque orchestral repertoire, proving that
    authenticity and timbral beauty aren’t mutually exclusive.
    New recordings of works by Locke, Vivaldi, Marais, Telemann and Rameau - a splendidly varied and expressively wide-ranging selection - is a welcome addition to the existing landmark recordings made by Savall in this repertoire. Pellucid engineering complements the live performances perfectly, offering warmth without excessive resonance, and letting the players shine.
