From London to Venice via Leipzig and The Hague, with Grand Tour – Baroque Road Trip, Simon Murphy and the New Dutch Academy take a fascinating journey through Europe in a sumptuous programme of Baroque musical treasures. Using authentic instruments in an immersive acoustic, these vivid performances not only celebrate the glories of the Baroque but also the sheer joy of making music.

"We've aimed to create a musical experience where you can really feel the human physicality involved”, writes Simon Murphy, “from the refined, elegant and poised end of the spectrum, right through to the earthy and raw, textured and gritty, sometimes rustic aspects of this Baroque craft of music making.”

This musical journey takes in works by Bach, Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi and van Wassenaer.

In the two irresistible concertos by Vivaldi – the famous Concerto for Lute, Strings and Basso Continuo in D and the infectiously bubbly Concerto for Flautino, Strings and Basso Continuo in C – the outer movements radiate a sunny optimism, balancing slow movements of great tenderness and beauty. Noted for its somewhat unusual scoring, the rhythmic bounce and swing of Bach’s delightful Brandenburg Concerto no. 6 in B flat is given here an extra fillip with the addition of a lute to the basso continuo. The delicious interplay between the ensemble parts continues with van Wassenaer’s characterful Concerto Armonico no. 1 in G which Murphy notes “could be nicknamed the ‘Dutch Brandenburg 3’”. And in his operas, Handel never really strays far from Italy, demonstrated here with the delicious arias Tornami a vagheggiar (from Alcina) and Brilla nell'alma (from Alessandro).

Described by De Volkskrant as “a musician with guts: a conductor with the passion and conviction of a born missionary”, Simon Murphy has a reputation for bringing fresh perspectives to the classic symphonic repertoire and is the founder and artistic director of the award-winning New Dutch Academy. This Baroque orchestra was described by BBC Music Magazine as “a big band playing on period instruments” and praised for its “sumptuous ... swinging rhythms ... stylish ornamentation ... inventive extemporisation.”

“This album takes its inspiration from the sheer delight and excitement of 18th century musical travellers”, writes Simon Murphy in the album notes, “there is such a palpable excitement as they embark on their musical adventure … I hope you enjoy the album and feel inspired by it.”

This is Simon Murphy and the New Dutch Academy’s sixth release for PENTATONE.

"Altviolist Simon Murphy doet met zijn strijkers en continuospelers een rondje Europa: Händel, Vivaldi, Telemann, Bach. Dat hij ook Den Haag kan aandoen, de vestigingsplaats van zijn ensemble, is te danken aan musicoloog Albert Dunning die in 1983 ontdekte dat de zes Concerti Armonici, lange tijd aan Pergolesi toegeschreven, in werkelijkheid werden gecomponeerd door Unico Wilhelm, graaf van Wassenaer. Murphy is zelf solist in het altvioolconcert van Telemann en neemt ook in het heerlijk kalm gespeelde Zesde Brandenburgse concert van Bach het voortouw. Net als op de vorige vijf cd’s klinkt de New Dutch Academy warm en vol en hoor je hoe enthousiast Murphy zijn musici aanvuurt. Zijn begin-ademhaling is bij ieder stuk duidelijk te horen. Tijdens concerten stampt hij vaak ook nog op de grond, maar dat heeft hij voor de cd-opname toch maar achterwege gelaten. De New Dutch Academy gaat met dit programma op wereldtournee, waarbij ook locaties worden aangedaan waar men nog niet zo vertrouwd is met barokmuziek als bij ons. Daarvoor is dit rijke en afwisselende programma bijzonder geschikt. Wie nog weinig barokmuziek kent, kan zich geen betere gids wensen dan Simon Murphy en zijn prachtige orkest.
