Photo: Jordi Savall on Flickr



There are several hundred photos of Jordi Savall on Flickr. It’s not surprising when you take into account how much he tours as director of Hesperion XXI and other distinguished ensembles.

One thing that struck me as I went through them—he’s often photographed in what seem to be quiet moments, a perspective even official publicity photos try to capture. In any case, they are very telling of an introverted and powerful musician.

Here are the most interesting.
