Now you can experience one of the greatest performers of renaissance music at close quarters in Logen Theatre. Jordi Savalli from Catalonia is a viol player, composer, conductor and archaeologist of early music. As his admiration for the viol has developed over more than fifty years, so has his interest in interaction between different cultures and religions through music and poetry. His burning commitment to building a peaceful world is apparent in all he does. Guro kleVen haGen. Photo: ole JørGen Bratland Savall. In his latest project Les Voix Humaines he likens the viol to the human voice through a series of short pieces of music. The concert reminds us principally of the need of humanity and co-humanity in our time.
