JERUSALEM: The City of Two Peaces – the Heavenly and the Mundane
A Prelude to the New Special Exhibition
Jordi Savall is one of the most eminent musicologists and interpreters of early music. His elaborately designed programs and audio books have not only introduced a large audience to historical performance practice, but he is also a dedicated humanist who builds bridges to other cultures and is committed to helping create lasting peace worldwide.
