Music Before 1850

Jordi Savall

When: Tue., March 16, 8 p.m. 2010

The irreplaceable viol master and early music wonder JordiSavall and Hespèrion XXI, featuring the great soprano Montserrat Figueras, returns to Cal Performances for a delicious program entitled LuxFeminae (900-1600): Seven Portraits of the Woman in Ancient Hesperia. The evening of poems and songs that focus on aspects of womanhood, also featured on a CD issued by Savall's Alia Vox label in 2006, will blend sacred, secular, and ethnic boundaries. It should also be downright gorgeous. At the First Congregational Church (2345 Channing Way, Berkeley) on Tuesday, Mar. 16. 8 p.m., $52. 415-642-9988 or
