About

Over 1,000 years, from the Byzantine Empire to the Napoleonic Wars, Venice played a key role in shaping the Western music.

Jordi Savall and his ensembles pay a tribute to a place that fully profited from its priviliged links with the Orient while hosting geniuses like Monteverdi, Gabrieli and Vivaldi. As you have come to expect from Alia Vox, this CD-book is lavishly illustrated and documented.

Format: CD-book deluxe / 2 hybrid multichannel SACD

Booklet: English, French, German, Italian, Castillan, Catalan

Reviews

Two discs, over 50 performers and 1000 years of musical history: even by Jordi Savall’s standards, ‘Venezia Millenaria’ is an extraordinary project – proof of what ambition, imagination and, yes, public subsidy can achieve. ... The characterful instrumental playing of Savall and his colleagues is reflected throughout in the vocal numbers, where colour and drama are prized above beauty, singers captured as though overheard by an anthropologist rather than engineered by a producer. The effect is wonderfully immediate – a snapshot not just of a city but of a spirit of music-making that Savall has pioneered.  Alexandra Coghlan
