Jordi Savall will bring 'Routes of Slavery' to Annenberg Center
Only now is Savall, 78, making his Philadelphia debut, a long way from the 1991 film Tous les Matins du monde, which brought him to international attention. Savall contributed the delicate, meditative score, winning him a Cesar Award (the French Oscar). The soundtrack album sold a million copies. Before that, Savall had been part of the early-music think tank/conservatory in Basel, Switzerland, and he worked with historic-instrument pioneers such as Gustav Leonhardt and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. He has made more than 100 recordings, many with his Hesperion XXI ensemble and his late wife, soprano Montserrat Figueras, that are lavishly packaged on his own AliaVox label. His deeply researched books have been published in eight languages.
