Jordi Savall


Jordi Savall, born in 1941 in Barcelona, embodies the spirit of the rich Catalan culture in which he was raised. Inspired by another great Catalan artist, Pablo Casals, whom he heard perform at Prades, the young Jordi Savall realized that music could be more than just a profession - for him, it would become an all-consuming life's work. He completed his cello studies at the Barcelona Conservatory in 1965 and, seeking to broaden his musical horizons, took an interest in early music.
