A tribute to the Earth. Tempests, Storms and Sea Faring Festivities during the Baroque period in Europe

The extraordinary mix of Spanish and Creole elements, influenced by indigenous and African traditions. The new music which emerged from the contact between Spanish tradition and popular Latin American languages.

Jordi Savall, a musical navigator who has sailed the oceans of time to discover for us innumerable forgotten treasures of Early Music, follows the nautical charts which marked the route of the first circumnavigation of the world by Fernando de Magallanes in 1522. Across tempests, storms and sea faring festivities in a grand tribute to the Earth, a planet whose surface is 70% water.

This exceptional musician who submerged himself in the great song books of the Spanish Baroque period, the tireless traveller across our patrimony, leads Le Concert des Nations to take us on another journey to the musical confines of the world with works by Vivaldi, Rameau, Telemann or Marais.


With the collaboration of the Departament de Cultura de la Generalitat de Catalunya and the Institut Ramon Llull.
