Festival Jordi Savall 2021
Jordi Savall organizes a new Music Festival bearing his name which take place at the Reial Monestir de Santes Creus on August, 2021.
Organized jointly by Fundació Centre Internacional de Música Antiga and the Departament de Cultura of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Festival will feature Maestro Jordi Savall’s principal music ensembles.
The aim of this festival is to affirm both the importance of recovering our cultural and musical heritage, and as well as Maestro Jordi Savall’s long and prolific career of more than 50 years devoted to discovering, researching and performing the musical heritage.
The Jordi Savall Festival at the Reial Monestir de Santes Creus aims to be an excellent opportunity to promote culture and provide a boost to tourism and the economy throughout the south of Catalonia. Contributing and presenting an outstanding cultural proposal with international projection, it looks forward to continuing in the future and establishing a cultural axis and networks with the various cultural and economic agents in the region.
The Festival comprises a total of five concerts performed by artists and ensembles of renowned standing and prestige under the direction of Jordi Savall.
Jordi Savall and his viola da gamba are to our time what Pau Casals and his cello were in their day. Inspired in the historic festival that Maestro Pau Casals founded in 1950, this festival builds on the legacy of the Poblet Early Music Festival which Jordi Savall began in 2013 and continued to schedule until 2019.
This year the festival will take place in two emblematic spaces of the Reial Monestirde Santes Creus, founded in 1160 and one of the greatest exponents of Gothic architecture in Catalonia as well as the royal pantheon and managed by the Catalan Agency for Cultural Heritage.
