Synopsis

Product Description
The name of the Balkans has an unusually graphic etymology. Having discovered the beauty of this pivotal part of Europe and experienced the ruggedness of its people (who put up fierce resistance to invasion), the Turks chose to describe the region with the words Bal (Honey) and Kan (Blood). Never was there so apt a metaphor. On this new set from Alia Vox, Jordi Savall presents an ambitious program that explores the length and breadth of a region that has always had more than its share of human and historical drama. Joined by guest musicians from the Balkan region, Savall traces the cycles of life, structured around the four seasons of the year and the corresponding seasons of human life. The set features nearly four hours of spellbinding music, accompanied by a lavishly documented 616 page CD-Book. A full track listing is available upon request.
