Armenian Spirit (Esprit d’Arménie) – Featuring Georgi Minasov

This album produced by Maestro Jordi Savall, is a tribute to Armenia and to the Armenian musicians who have played alongside Savall and his wife Montserrat Figueras over the past several years.

The repertoire, pulled from Hesperion XXI’s fascinating live programs, ranges from lively to contemplative.  All of the unique and powerful music on Armenian Spirit is beautifully played using traditional instruments including the duduk, an ancient double-reed instrument with a deeply moving sound quality.

Jordi Savall illuminates this music with a faultless musical flair, driven by his endless curiosity and supreme musicianship. The disc is accompanied by a lavishly documented and richly illustrated booklet.
