Synopsis

Product Description
On this moving portrait of Granada, Jordi Savall leads Hespérion XXI and La Capella Reial de Catalunya in an exploration of 500 years of Spanish history. Granada is a symbol, like no other, of the fruitful but conflictual encounter of the three monotheistic religions. The succession of the zirid, almoravid, almohad and nasrid dynasties, their relationship with the neighboring christian kingdoms and the often precarious situation of the Jews (the first inhabitants of this area) are reflected in this wide musical fresco, in which each culture displays its most advanced refinement.
