Deutsche Grammophon/Archiv Produktion Release on CD for the First Time Bataglie e Lamenti Featuring Jordi Savall
Album of 16th & 17th Century works devoted to depicting scenes of battle and lamentation

Jordi Savall is hugely respected both as an instrumentalist and as a music director across early music. Throughout his career he has made outstanding period instrument recordings, exploring the roots of European Musical tradition, and his masterly playing of the viola da gamba gave immense depth to the success of the film ‘Tous les matins du monde'. Deutsche Grammophon is immensely proud to present this album from Savall and Hespèrion XX which was recorded in 1981 and has never been issued on CD before making this a rare find amongst the catalog.

In the 17th Century, battles were celebrated with musical compositions which inspired soldiers with the glory of the past. But battles breed as much grief as grandeur. "Bataglie e Lamenti" is a musical journey which takes listeners through exhilarating and somber landscapes, masterfully depicted by Savall, Figueras and Hespèrion XX.
