Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Savall shows an awareness not only of the music's sense of drama, but also of its nobility of expression, solemnity and imaginative use of sonority. This is as good a performance of the original version of the piece I have heard. " -BBC Music Magazine *****

"Though his period orchestra, based on a string section of 16, is smaller than I find ideal, Jordi Savall directs a good, straightforward performance, carefully balanced, and minutely attentive to the composer's markings, not least the disruptive sforzando accents that pepper the score. The Earthquake, complete with gunfire timpani and screeching, snarling valveless brass, is properly convulsive." -Gramophone Magazine
