Notes & Reviews:

"Very few artists transform the scholarly into the genuinely entertaining as successfully as Jordi Savall. He makes early music accessible and fun." - ClassicsToday.com

"... Couperin listed a wide range of options - violin, flute, oboe, viol and bassoon - while he himself played harpsichord, presumably expanding its role to that of chordal continuo. ... for a month of Sundays, Jordi Savall's colourful options are a delight. The final Concert offers a kaleidoscope of colours, all the more varied by continuo of harpsichord and theorbo/guitar and ending with a wonderfully spirited 'Forlane en rondeau'." -BBC Music Magazine, May 2005 ****
