On Tuesday, April 17, Sapienza University will host "Istanbul: Jordi Savall & Hespèrion XXI," a tribute to the popular music of Istanbul and the more refined instrumental music of the Ottoman Court in the 17th century.

Jordi Savall, one of the foremost interpreters of Baroque music, has recently been focusing on rediscovering and promoting traditional music from non-European countries, particularly the Middle East and the Mediterranean.

The concert is organised by the Sapienza University Concert Institution (IUC).
