A Dialogue of Souls: Istanbul

A peerless musician and conductor as well as an impeccable scholar, Jordi Savall is a “performer of genius,” says The New Yorker. He returns with a fascinating musical journey in time and space, devised on a dialogue of Arabo-Andalusian, Jewish, and Christian music from medieval Spain and around the Mediterranean. This program features Sefardic, Armenian, and Turkish music showcased in Moldavian prince Dimitrie Cantemir’s The Book of Science and Music, published in 1710 after he spent many years in Istanbul.
