Notes & Reviews:

The Concert spirituel was one of the first public concert series in existence. The concerts began in Paris in 1725 and ended in 1790. The series was founded to provide entertainment on religious holidays when the other spectacles (the Paris Opera, Comédie-Francaise and Comédie-Italienne) were closed. The programs featured a mixture of sacred choral works and virtuosic instrumental pieces, and for many years took place in a magnificently decorated Salle des Cent Suisses in the Tuileries Palace. They were primarily attended by well-to- do bourgeois, the lower aristocracy and foreign visitors. Jordi Savall brings these magnificent evenings back to life, thanks to an imaginary "concert spirituel" program featuring three major composers from three major European countries: Corelli, Telemann and Rameau. This album enables us to rediscover the quintessence of the musical life during the reign of Louis XV. As you have come to expect from Alia Vox, it features superlative soloists, magnificent artwork and state-of-the-art sound engineering.

"Jordi Savall, master of ingenious programming, recreates a Concert Spirituel... Sumptuously produced with generous notes, this release is highly recommended." -BBC Music Magazine

"Savall reaches out to explore the expressive extremes. Corelli's textures are dense and complex, three solo strings set against, here, ten more strings, playing immaculately. SACD helps greatly in differentiating the sounds...Sumptuously produced with generous notes, this release is highly recommended." -BBC Music Magazine

"The performances display characteristics typical of any under Jordi Savall's direction: richly toned, suave and confidently at ease with the style." -Gramophone Magazine
