Couplets des Folies d’Espagne
Andrew Lawrence-King

Brooding and impassioned, the Folia was a dance of baroque Spain. The Romanesca embodied the spirit of Italy in its golden age. Jordi Savall gleefully throws them together: he’s never acknowledged any musical boundaries, and in this exuberant concert ‘the man who made the viola da gamba sing again’ comes together with specialist baroque harpist Andrew Lawrence-King to celebrate some of the most vibrant music of any nation, or any century. Join them: and get ready to party like it’s 1599.
