Notes & Reviews:

400 years since the publication of Don Quixote, Jordi Savall presents this fascinating collection featuring all the airs, songs and ballads written or quoted by Cervantes, as well as those to which the author alludes throughout the novel. Savall's musically colorful program is punctuated by Spanish actor Manuel Forcano reading some of the finest passages from the book. Meticulously researched by Savall himself, this two SACD set richly displays the great musical treasures of the day, forever preserved in Cervantes' classic and enduring tale. Presented in a luxurious hard-back book format, this set features 272 full-color pages of text and photos and includes the complete texts (both sung and spoken) translated into seven different languages.

"There are eloquent performances from all those concerned: Figueras proffering impassioned realisations of words and music while Arianna Savall's sweetly expressive singing to her own harp accompaniment affectingly evokes the spirit of the age." -BBC Music Magazine *****
