Il Viaggio D'amore
- (SALINAS / SAVALL / JOHANSEN / MARIS / NAGY)
- Format: CD
The new album by Arianna Savall and her ensemble Hirundo Maris, following last years' Hildegard of Bingen. Recording is a musical journey of Amor, the love, through Europe and beyond, and through different ages and cultures. Assembled on this album are traditional songs, songs from Renaissance sources as well as new compositions by Arianna Savall and, finally, the famous "Gracias a la vida" by Chilenian singer and political activist Violeta Parra. The six musicians of HIrundo Maris combine all these diverse musical sources of their music into a time and weightless dance through time and space. In the end, it is not clear anymore where the borders and differences between them are, and it is not even important anymore: Love as the universal uniting force is being applied here in a most practical way, and made comprehensible and very real to the attentive listener.
