SIMON MURPHY AND NEW DUTCH ACADEMY
Celebrating the Dirk Hartog Year
Presented by The Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands and Sydney Festival
The Dutch music scene of the 17th and 18th centuries had an energy and effervescence that will never be repeated in music history – but, it turns out, now Sydney music lovers can experience it.
For one special concert, Sydney-born conductor and viola player Simon Murphy returns to his homeland with period instrument ensemble New Dutch Academy in tow and a treasure chest of rare riches from the Baroque repertoire: Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann, de Fesch, van Wassenaer and more.
Marking the 400th anniversary of Dutch explorer Dirk Hartog’s expedition to Australia, here’s a wonderfully improbable opportunity to experience the cosmopolitan glory days of the Baroque right here in Sydney.
