Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD+book evokes through music the great century which preceded the end of the War of the Spanish Succession in 1714: a rich musical fresco and an in-depth historical review of a very brief but highly representative period in the history of Europe and its conflicts. From the Ottomans’ attack on Hungary in 1613, the Massacre of the Jews in Frankfurt in 1614, and the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, to the Peace Treaty of Utrecht and the fall of Barcelona, we can see the extent of this unremitting tragedy of European civilization: the widespread use of the “culture of war” as the principal means of settling cultural, religious, political, and territorial differences.

 Press review March 26, 2017 By Classicalacarte Classicalacarte (Saint-Donat, QC) See All My Reviews "Definitely one of the best and most interesting CD-Book published by Savall and his musical friends from Le Concert des Nations, Hesperion XXI and la Capella Reial de Catalunya. This his volume XXI in a series entitled “Raices & Memoria” (Roots & Memory). The book is abundantly illustrated and contains six short essays, available in six languages, devoted to the topic of war. The music (two and a half hour long) recorded on two CDs, is a survey of works composed on the occasion of historical events related to the main theme of war. At Classicalacarte.net we have located eleven reviews devoted to this CD-Book. Most of them are definitely favourable to Savall’s proposition.
