Jordi Savall: The House of Borgia – With Montserrat Figueras La Capella Reial de Catalunya – Hespèrion XXI

About

The musicians of Hespèrion XXI and La Capella Reial de Catalunya, conducted by Jordi Savall, follow the political career of the Borgias to present an original programme with works from Spain and Italy spanning five centuries of music history.

Native of Valencia (Spain), the Borgias have remained notorious in history essentially through Pope Alexander VI (1492-1503). Accused of simony, nepotism, rape and corruption, Pope Alexander VI led a life of debauchery. As to his children, Lucrezia was accused of incestuous relationships, and Cesare served as a model for Niccolò Machiavelli's famous book, The Prince.
