Join curator of the Classical Stage, international award-winning conductor and violist Simon Murphy, for an exhilarating musical journey with music from his new album, JET SET!
Simon’s new album follows the 18th century musical “jet set” as they do the sparkling cultural epicentres of the time – including London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna and St Petersburg.
Spotlighting works by celebrated musicians in residence at the Court of Orange as well as star musical visitors to the city, the performance also gives special insight into The Hague’s own richly cosmopolitan musical heritage.
Simon explores the sights and sounds of 18th century Europe together with his colleagues from The Hague’s award-winning Baroque orchestra, The New Dutch Academy, performing musical gems by Abel, Graaf, Stamitz, Zelter and Mendelssohn.
