Notes and Editorial Reviews

This double album is an invitation to explore the forces of nature, so vividly depicted by the composers at the turn of the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries.

With this stunning (and first) recording of Jean-Fery Rebel’s Les Elements, Jordi Savall displays his unmatched vision of the baroque orchestral repertoire, proving that authenticity and timbral beauty aren’t mutually exclusive.

New recordings of works by Locke, Vivaldi, Marais, Telemann and Rameau - a splendidly varied and expressively wide-ranging selection - is a welcome addition to the existing landmark recordings made by Savall in this repertoire.

Review:

Jordi Savall’s inventive programming explores earth, air, fire and
Read more water. The ferment of Rameau’s Tonnerre from Hippolyte meets the cooler but highly original Curtain Tune from Matthew Locke’s Tempest and Vivaldi’s bubbling Tempesta di mare concerto. Hidden in Marin Marais’ Alcione, with its tremendous Chaconne, is the surprise of a march that became a popular Christmas carol. Le Concert des Nations plays with typical verve and energy.
