Savall: Long-Lasting Legacy of the Viol

WHRB reviews Jordi Savall's recent concert with the Boston Early Music Festival at Sanders Theatre. The concert was based on the soundtrack for the French film Tous les matins du monde which Savall recorded in 1991. The concert celebrated the legacy of 17th century viol masters Marais and Saint-Colombe and demonstrated Savall's commitment to continuing this legacy as a viol player himself.
