Jordi Savall's Musical History of Venice

On Feb. 3, Jordi Savall and his international band of ancient instrument performers took WQXR listeners through a musical history of Venice live from Carnegie Hall. Above is the archive of that broadcast.

For 1,000 years, Venice was a world capital of trade and culture. Savall traces the melodies from across the Mediterranean to Persia, the Ottoman empire; and from Rome to France to 11th century Greece — all through music that moved through Venice. View the Carnegie Hall playbill for complete map of the historical arc of this performance.

From WQXR

Feliç aniversari, Jordi Savall!

Extracto del concierto de Jordi Savall para viola da gamba del ciclo “Origen y esplendor de la viola da gamba”. Obras de Sieur de Machy y Marin Marais.
Cíclos de Miércoles, 28 de mayo de 2014.

El “Prélude” del Sieur de Machy que abre esta sección se desarrolla en un estilo antiguo, aún heredero con la técnica de la tiorba. Contrasta con las piezas de Marais, en estilo moderno: expresividad y virtuosismo técnico, exploración tímbrica y predominio de la melodía son los elementos que caracterizan a estas piezas. Con ellas, la viola da gamba demuestra ser el instrumento que, con mayor precisión, podía imitar la voz humana.
