Jordi Savall & Le Concert des Nations

2018–2019 Season

Jordi Savall, director & Le Concert des Nations

Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 7:30pm
Sanders Theatre at Harvard University, Cambridge

Tous les matins du monde
Viol legend Jordi Savall revisits Alain Corneau’s 1991 film Tous les matins du monde in a stunning program of music from the French Baroque. The award-winning motion picture explored the often tense relationship between viol master Marin Marais and his mentor Sainte-Colombe, with Savall and Le Concert des Nations providing the crucial soundtrack. Over 27 years after the movie’s premiere, Savall has assembled some of the world’s finest musicians for an evocative program featuring music by these extraordinary composers and other French Baroque masters, including Jean-Baptiste Lully, François Couperin, and Jean-Marie Leclair.

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE AND TIME CHANGE. Due to unforeseen repairs to the beautiful sanctuary at St. Paul Church in Cambridge, the concert has been moved to Sanders Theatre at Harvard University at 7:30pm. We regret that there will be no pre-concert talk.

“A certifiable superstar.”

—The New Yorker
