About

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 Savall's first) recording of Jean-Fery Rebelís Les Elements, Savall displays his unmatched vision of the baroque orchestral repertoire, proving that authenticity and timbral beauty arenít 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.

Recorded live on July 19, 2015 in Fontfroide, France.

Reviews

All through there are striking moments with Le Concert des Nations weaving some wonderful sounds with lovely textures and harmonies, particularly towards the end Ö Jordi Savall has gathered together a terrific collection of music to which he and Le Concert des Nations bring life and buoyancy, colour and great textures.  Bruce Reader
