ANTONIO VIVALDI / W. A. MOZART / GEORG FRIDERIC HANDEL
Vivaldi / Mozart / Handel: Dixit Dominus
Jordi Savall, Le Concert des Nations, la Capella Reial de Catalunya

[ Alia Vox SACD / Hybrid SACD ]

Release Date: Friday 21 October 2016

Three composers and three masterpieces based on a cornerstone of the Bible, the psalm Dixit Dominus makes up Jordi Savall's latest recording.

Following the critically acclaimed Magnifcat & Concerti two years ago, here we experience the full maturity of Savall's ensembles. The vivid orchestral colours, the ideal spacing of the instruments, the infallible virtuosity of the choir, the bright sound bringing out both the delicate and the bold within the works prove that Jordi Savall has established a new standard for the recording of 18th Century music.

M. Mathéu, H. Bayodi-Hirt - sopranos

Direction : Jordi Savall

"Glorious singing and playing of irrepressable effervescence ... Superb SACD sound and a lavishly designed booklet." Choir & Organ

"The performances of all three pieces have an overall character that contrasts with the tendency these days for hard-driven interpretations…an individualistic and essentially musical approach, as one might expect from Savall" Gramophone Magazine January 2017
