Product description

Product Description

Jordi Savall examines 500 years of history in this portrait of a city that symbolises like no other the fruitful and at the same time conflictual encounter of the three monotheistic religions. The succession of the Zirid, Almoravid, Almohad and Nasrid dynasties, their relationship with the neighbouring Christian kingdoms and the often precarious situation of the Jews (the first inhabitants of this area) are reflected in this wide musical fresco, in which each culture displays its most advanced refinement.

Review

'The music is glorious ... Savall has gathered a band of crack musicians and singers from Syria, Morocco, Turkey, Greece and Israel and the performances are full of finesse and intensity. What stands out for me is the Mozarabic polyphony vibrant, poised singing from La Capella Reial de Catalunya.' --The Guardian, 28th July 2016

'The celebration of musical interconnectedness is manifest in the smoothness of Savall s programme and its execution ... Heart-rending moments of beauty abound such as Manuel Forcano s (director, Institute Ramon Llull) recitation concerning the forced conversion of the Jews in 1148. Again this is framed by dance a Morisque only to be followed by a lament on the death of King Sancho III of Castile, Plange Castella misera, movingly sung by Marc Mauillon. Towards the end of the programme Savall returns to the joyful Villancico Viva el Gran Re Don Fernando previously featured on his Dinastia Borgia album (Alia Vox, 2/11). He retains the grandiose opening instrumental verse, but this Granada performance is statelier, with lightly etched rhythms.' --Edward Breen Gramophone, September 2016

***** 'Bouhassoun and Elmaleh sing their hearts out, marking the sense of loss as the main emotional theme of the album.' Niel Van Der Linden Songlines, October 2016 ------------------ MUSICWEB INTERNATIONAL RECORDING OF THE MONTH 'The music itself is packed full of discoveries and treasures which often reveal themselves through juxtaposition ... The choral work is also typically excellent ... In short, this is a breathtaking achievement. It s the kind of disc that often left me in quiet astonishment not just at its ambition, artistry or skill, but at the way it tries to further the human story and enrich the experience of us all. Bravo!' --Simon Thompson MusicWeb International, September 2016
