Why "Alia Vox" ?

For Jordi Savall, "Alia Vox means other voices and original voices in the recording business". What guides us, says Savall, are "... our personal preferences, without being systematic. We choose the works for which we have a feeling of sympathy and proximity. It is also a way to bring in the forefront the ensembles and the musicians with whow we work: Hespèrion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, my wyfe Montserrat Figueras and myself." And we could add to the list the daughter of the famous couple, Arianna Savall. Their son, Ferran, seems " to have branched out into jazz which (according to Savall) is not that far away from early music." This is a story to be followed...

In an interview on the phone with Brian Robins (Fanfare, vol. 23-1), Savall was more specific about his new involvement:
"My principal motivation was freedom, something essential to an artist. Also, there was the fact that we have seen a revolution among record companies. Every year they change their artistic director and so on, and in those circumstances it is very difficult to have a clear view of the future. Auvidis (with whom Savall had recorded for some years) is now part of a multimedia company. So the artistic policy had changed, and I was already thinking that, after 30 years of record-making experience with a large range of companies, I was finally prepared to create my own label and do my own production."


Savall adds that  "... the first objective is to present from the repertoire we cover the most beautiful music, and give to tour audience the opportunity of discovering music and composers who are perhaps not the most interesting from the commercial point of view."


Furthermore, says Savall, "... creating Alia Vox ... gives me the opportunity to control a recording in all its different aspects: repertoire, interpretation, sound." "To me it is important that even at the planning stage of a recording we are already thinking about which painting we will use, so that we can give our audience a visual idea of what the music will be like. In the era of the Internet and virtual reality I think it (is) very important that we poroduce an object that has an easthetic value, so that the owner can feel that he already has pleasure by the time he holds it in his hands."
