Celtic Universe: A dialogue between Ancient, Historical, and Modern traditions
For more than 50 years, Jordi Savall has crafted a legacy as one of the most versatile musical personalities of his generation, in performances that marry meticulous research with enthusiastic and engaging musicianship. A favorite of BEMF audiences since our very first Concert Season, Mr. Savall returns to conclude the 2017–2018 Season with a fascinating journey through Celtic musical traditions. Join this extraordinary collection of musicians—including Carlos Nuñez, Andrew Lawrence-King, and others—for a dialogue between Ancient, Historical, and Modern traditions featuring music from Ireland, Scotland, French Brittany, Galicia, and the Basque Country.

Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm.

“A certifiable superstar.”
—The New Yorker
