Homage to Syria: dialogue of Arab, Christian and Sephardic music, from the medieval Mediterranean to the present day
A major player in the baroque revival, the gambist and renaissance specialist Jordi Savall shines once again with Orient and Occident, a concert combining various influences and taken from an eponymous album with more than 60,000 copies sold

“Peace is necessary for Life and for Art, neither can develop without freedom. Through emotion and beauty, the power of music helps us to have a united conscience of the dramatic situation of today’s conflicts. The sound journey that this program offers us, through the songs, dances and poetry of the vast Middle Eastern continent, and particularly of an ancient civilization like Syria, is wants a sincere homage to a people which suffers from a cruel and devastating war. The singers and the oriental musicians gathered around the Hespèrion XXI ensemble, show us that the function of art and of the artist is also to create bridges of dialogue and understanding between the ancient peoples and cultures of Europe and the East.
