    One of the most beloved artists in the world, Jordi Savall returns to the BEMF concert stage to lead his acclaimed ensemble Hespèrion XXI in a program of masterpieces from the golden age of viol consort music, which flourished between 1500 and 1700. Savall directs his ensemble of seven exceptional artists—playing all members of the viol family, plus lute, theorbo, and percussion—in a fascinating and expansive tour of two centuries of music. From Elizabethan England to the Baroque French court, Venice to Spain, and Germany to Rome, this program is sure to delight, as you immerse yourself in the timeless music of such masters as Dowland, Gibbons, Cabezón, Philidor, Scheidt, Rossi, and many others.
