Fantasies, Battles and Dances
(1500 – 1750)

Exceptional event on the occasion of an anticipated return to North America, Jordi Savall returns to the Maison symphonique de Montréal for a musical incursion into the splendour of the Renaissance, a key musical period for the emergence of the viola de gamba and the viola consort*.

A world of discoveries
For the pleasure of all music lovers, Jordi Savall will perform with his ensemble Hespèrion XXI, a European program entitled “Fantasies, Battles and Dances – The Golden Age of Consort Music (1500 – 1750)”, a collection of works by 15 important composers from the Renaissance and the Baroque periods.

Composers in alphabetical order: Innociento Alberti, Johann Sebastian Bach, Joan Cabanilles, Antonio de Cabezón, John Dowland, Alfonso Ferrabosco, Orlando Gibbons, Giuseppe Guami, John Jenkins, William Lawes, Giovanni Maria, Henry Pucell, Samuel Scheidt, Christopher Tye and by Clement Woodcock.

* A consort of instruments was a phrase used in England during the 16th and 17th centuries to indicate an instrumental ensemble. These could be of the same or a variety of instruments. It can be used today to designate certain types of formations practicing an aspect of early music up to baroque music.
