Info zu Stamitz / Richter: Early String Symphonies, Vol. 1
The musicians at Mannheim formulated a codified, highly articulate musical language, which is full of rhetorical musical gestures and effects borrowed from earlier musical languages. In its classic form, the Mannheim symphonic language typically combines energetic and exciting Italianate string figurations with driving bass lines, and soothing cantabile Italian opera style melody writing.
The New Dutch Academy Mannheim Project is an immense project involving original material from dozens of libraries throughout the world, the analysis of manuscripts, the preparation of working scores, the consultation of treatises and other sources; thought about aesthetically schools, flows, changes and in relation to instruments, playing techniques and musical realization; and the combination of all this with performance, learning the Mannheim language, and bringing the music to life. Through this album we are very proud to launch our Mannheim Project, and to set the tone for the resulting series of recordings which will present newly discovered works, many of which will appear here for the first time in recorded form.
“Although the authentic instrument ensemble The New Dutch Academy was launched in 2002, it has quickly secured an international reputation, formed as it is of a number of well established early music performance specialists in the Netherlands…. Vibrant, energetic and wonderfully secure playing is supported by a sumptuous recording which fairly wallows in the fulsome acoustic, yet there is no loss of detail in the fast music.” (Ivor Humphreys, Gramophone)
“Murphy and his orchestra bring the melodic figures and rhetorical effects in the symphonies of Franx Xaver Richter and Johann Stamitz to life with a fantastic flair – energizing performances of this music ... daring and full of character” (Haagsche Courant)
