Died: 23rd November 2011, Cerdanyola del Vallès, Catalonia, Spain

Montserrat Figueras (1942-2011) was born in Barcelona, where she studied singing and acting. At a very early age, Montserrat Figueras gave her first concert with the Catalan Early Music ensemble, Ars Musicae. In 1968 she left for Basle and studied early and modern music at the Schola Cantorum Baseliensis and the Conservatoire. She worked under Kurt Widmer, Thomas Binkley and later with Eva Krasznai.

Six years later, Jordi Savall (her husband since 1968), Montserrat Figueras, Lorenzo Alpert and Hopkinson Smith founded the ensemble Hesperion XX. In 1987 Jordi Savall founded the vocal and instrumental ensemble La Capella Reial of which Montserrat is a member. Montserrat Figueras has developed a most personal conception of the interpretation of early vocal music, especially from Spain and Catalonia.
