Description: The conceit behind this program is that these composers were the equivalent of a “Jet Set” or “Classical Glitterati” who used to “do” cosmopolitan cultural epicentres of the time, including London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna and St Petersburg. OK. The style of the symphonies is early Classical with Zelter’s concerto also referring to the Empfindsamkeit style of C.P.E. Bach No texts. Gudrun Sidonie Otto (soprano), The New Dutch Academy; Simon Murphy (viola).
