We all know that Catalan Jordi Savall’s artistic capacity includes much more than baroque music. Recently we were reminded of it when he received the Léonie Sonning Music Prize at an unforgettable concert at Trinity Church. Nevertheless, it must be more than usually interesting to hear how this great artist can inspire Concerto Copenhagen musicians in the fascinating program of French and French-inspired orchestral suites, he has put together for this concert event ...

Savall is not only leading the ensemble but also performs on the viola da gamba, and the concert ends with a large excerpt from Handel's beloved Water Music.

G. Dumanoir & Anonymous: Suite du Ballet de Stockholm
J.-B. Lully: Suite from Alceste
G. Ph.. Telemann: Suite in D major for viola da gamba and strings
G. F. Handel: Water Music

Musical direction and viola da gamba: Jordi Savall

Léonie Sonning Music Foundation has supported this concert featuring this year's recipient of the Léonie Sonning Music Prize”
