A MUSICAL JOURNEY THROUGH A RADIANT AGE
Featuring works by Abel, Reichardt, Zelter, Storace, Mozart and Paisiello, this album follows the musical “jet set” of the 18th century as they “do” the splendid cosmopolitan cultural epicentres of the time, including London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna and St Petersburg. Exploring the intertwining stories of these leading lights as they criss-cross the European Continent, the album watches the sparks fly as they inspire each other in this period abuzz with creative fervour, international cultural exchange and mind-blowing talent. With several world-première recordings of new discoveries (Abel, Reichardt, Storace) alongside some well-loved classics, this journey features music which abounds in enlightened positivity, radiance, inventiveness, energy and inspiration.

This outstanding programme is presented by conductor/violist Simon Murphy and his New Dutch Academy, with soprano Gudrun Sidonie Otto providing the vocal contributions. JET SET! is the seventh PENTATONE release of Murphy and his ensemble, after having presented albums performing the works of Corelli, Stamitz, Richter, Schmitt, Zappa, Bach, Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi and Van Wassenaer.

Press reviews

De Volkskrant

Since 2002, the (post) baroque orchestra New Dutch Academy has been operating from The Hague, which plays on historically sound instruments. On the new album Jet Set! his works have been collected from distinguished figures in European music metropolises from the second half of the 18th century, providing a nice overview of the various accents and fashions. We hear pieces by Stephen Storace, Johann Friedrich Reichardt, Giovanni Paisiello, Carl Friedrich Abel. And forward, Mozart.

The album opens with the Viola Concerto by Carl Friedrich Zelter, one of the founders of the Bach Renaissance in the 19th century. Leader Simon Murphy performs as a soloist. It immediately becomes clear that this ensemble distinguishes itself by its rhetorical ability, the art of telling a musical story. The Academy makes the theme sound incomparably longing and plays with spice, but does not watch over excessive accentuations. And if this album makes clear, Bach student Abel may be put on the programs more often.
