About This Event

One of early music’s living legends, Spanish viol master Jordi Savall, leads his ensemble Hespèrion XXI and Carlos Núñez in a special program titled “Celtic Universe.” The evening will be a musical dialogue between ancient, historical, and modern traditions of north and south Europe: Ireland, Scotland, the French Brittany, Galicia, and the Basque Country.

Jordi Savall has had a truly exceptional life and career that has produced over 120 records, most released on his own label, and combined with a “never-ending tour” that takes him to the four corners of the world every year. His ensemble Hespèrion XXI is a Grammy Award winner for Best Small Ensemble Performance.

When the Los Angeles Times suggested that “if it’s possible to become a pop star playing traditional music on bagpipes and recorder, Núñez could be the man,” it may have been an understatement. Few pop stars pack the energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into their concerts and recordings as Galician multi-instrumentalist Carlos Núñez. He is the world’s most famous player of the gaita, the bagpipes of Galicia, Spain’s northwest, Atlantic Ocean-abutting region rich in vibrant, uniquely expressive Celtic traditional music.
