Jordi Savall plays ‘Celtic Viol’
Jordi Savall is one of the masters of early classical music performance, now he’s turned his hand to Irish and Scottish music. There’s plenty of tunes you’ll all know here
Interesting concept that has one fan at least in the Irish Times classical music critic Michael Dervan who gave it 4 stars and says
"He doesn’t just want to emulate existing performing style, but to offer something different through an approach that’s soaked in his own experience playing Renaissance and Baroque music. The refinement that results is genuinely fascinating."
So to a classical music critic he’s "refined" the music, interested to know what the rest of you think. I’ll save my own opinion til later………
