Mr. Savall’s repertory ranges from the medieval era to the French baroque and beyond. Since 1973, he has been a teacher at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. His work in teaching, research and as a concert performer makes him one of the main figures in the process of revaluation of historical music which is happening in Europe.
