Jordi Savall is hugely respected both as an instrumentalist and as a music director across early music. Throughout his career he has made outstanding period instrument recordings, exploring the roots of European Musical tradition, and his masterly playing of the viola da gamba gave immense depth to the success of the film 'Tous les matins du monde'. In the 17th Century, battles were celebrated with musical compositions which inspired soldiers with the glory of the past. But battles breed as much grief as grandeur. "Bataglie e Lamenti" is a musical journey which takes listeners through exhilarating and sombre landscapes, masterfully depicted by Savall, Figueras and Hesperion XX. Recorded in 1982, this is Savall's only recording for the Archiv Label

"When they dusted off this archetype of Venetian opera in 1993. Rene Jacobs and Herbert Wernicke probably had no idea that their recreation was destined for worldwide acclaim. But then La Calisto (1651) still has plenty to say to today's audiences: first of all because it shows the gods as falible, indeed lustful: and secondly, because it is served here by an absolute gem of a production, and by a musical realisation that manages to be both inventive and rigorous. Constantly mingling nobility and triviality, comedy and tragedy, this Calisto juxtaposes Monteverdian declamation and new-fangled aria as effortlessly as it juggles the divine and the earthly."--Container
