Hirundo Maris

V roku 2009 Arianna Savall a Petter Udland Johansen založili súbor Hirundo Maris, ktorý sa špecializuje na starú hudbu od stredoveku po barok, ale aj na ich vlastné kompozície. Ich kreatívnym jadrom je stredozemná a severská hudba, ovocie ich širokého hudobného spojenia. Ako sťahovavé vtáky, opakujú cesty ponad moria s hudbou ktorá odnepamäti spája Škandináviu s Pyrenejským polostrovom.

Hirundo Maris sa pravidelne objavuje na mnohých festivaloch po celej Európe, napríklad na  Stanser Musiktage (Švajčiarsko), Cologne’s Fest für Alte Musik, the Jazz in Church Festival, Bucharest (Rumunsko), the Menuhin Festival Gstaad (Švajčiarsko), the Bachwochen Thun (Švajčiarsko), the Styriarte Festival (Rakúsko), All’Improvviso Festival (Poľsko), the Oslo Kirkemusikk Festivalen, Nordlysfestivalen (Severský festival svetiel) Tromsø (Nórsko), Festival de Dinan (Veľká Británia), Seduced by Harps (Belgicko), the Sentmenat International Harp Festival (Katalánsko), the Arp Sanati Dergi Festival in Istanbul (Turecko), Festival de Fontfroide a Philippe Maillard Productions (Paríž), a iných.

Súbor Hirundo Maris nahral svoj prvý CD nosič Chants du Sud et du Nord pod prestížnou značkou Manfreda Eichera ECM record.

Súbor Hirundo Maris spolupracoval s inými súbormi a nahrávacími spoločnosťami ako sú Alia Vox, Ramée Records and CAB Records.


"The ensemble splices elements of Nordic and Mediterranean tradition into a drifting, formal but ballasted slow dance. Gorgeous." Nick Coleman, Independent on Sunday, July 2012.

"Arianna Savall and Petter Udland Johansen propose a musical journey through time and space. Alternating between traditional music (Sephardic, Catalan, Spanish, Celtic and Norwegian melodies) and their own compositions, creating a distinctly individual universe of sound and poetry, combining with amazing naturalness the different styles of musical practice acquired throughout their careers with an extraordinary diversity that embraces all kinds of music. With their accompaniments on the harp and the hardingfele (Hardanger fiddle), Arianna Savall and Petter Udland Johansen achieve a deft and subtle evocation of each climate that shimmers with the thousand-and-one colours of the plucked strings. As usual, their voices convey a light that is warm and diaphanous by turns and tempered with perfect discipline and, above all, their ability to evoke lyrical inflections such as the natural brilliance of traditional song. Arianna and Petter have brought together in this recording a group of exceptional musicians from North and South, from artistically diverse traditions whose virtuosity enables them to move from one aesthetic style to another. The musicians of Hirundo Maris (a Latin term meaning ?sea swallow?) undoubtedly do justice to the name of the ensemble, effortlessly winging their way from one continent to another, from one period to another, creating in each piece an atmosphere of perfectly defined reflections, the whole being permeated with that Mediterranean and Nordic essence which underlies the irrepressible musical heritage of Arianna Savall and Petter Udland Johansen. At a time when we are eagerly exploring bridges between musical repertories, between art music and the timeless legacy of our oral traditions, the music in this album is remarkable for its exceptional originality and flawless musicality."
