  • Hespèrion XXI
  • Jordi Savall director, treble viol

For all the difficulties of travel four centuries ago, fresh ideas flowed freely between major European centres of trade and commerce.

Jordi Savall and Hespèrion XXI have probably done more than any other ensemble to show the correspondences and cross-fertilisation that occurred when musicians absorbed new fashions from abroad and exported their knowledge to other lands.

Their programme shows how simple dance forms were transformed into works of irresistible elegance for the ears of Renaissance Europe’s powerbrokers and leaders.
