Spanish Follies: Greatness Appreciates Greatness

"[W]e listen to a lot of early music in our household," writes Paul Krugman, in a tribute to the world-class musician from the Nobel-winning economist. We do at Our House, too. Follow the link to Krugman's post containing a YouTube of the great Jordi Savall (wiki), arguably the greatest living master of the viola da gamba, now in his mature years, and improved like a fine wine since the days in the late Eighties when I attended a workshop by him. (I haven't followed up, but recalling the appearance of Jordi's wife, soprano Montserrat Figueras, lamentably deceased in 2011, I would guess that the strikingly beautiful child at the harp is his daughter, or perhaps granddaughter.)
