Jordi Savall is one of the most versatile musical personalities of his generation. For more than fifty years, he has rescued musical gems from the obscurity of neglect and oblivion and given them back for all to enjoy. A tireless researcher into early music, he interprets and performs the repertory both as a gambist and a conductor. Together with Montserrat Figueras, he founded the ensembles Hespèrion XXI (1974), La Capella Reial de Catalunya (1987) and Le Concert des Nations (1989), with whom he explores and creates a world of emotion and beauty shared with millions of early music enthusiasts around the world.

'The Kid Next to Me' is a duet created and performed by father and son, after many hours of sharing playful spaces around movement. It is an open letter to parental love, to fear, to the uncertainty of what it means to raise a child, and to the struggle of adults to save that inner child that reminds us of what is essential in life.
