The Grand Tour

Music of the Baroque

A “gap year” is in vogue today—and it was in the 17th and 18th centuries, too. Harry Bicket, Baroque specialist and artistic director of The English Concert, leads a lively musical reenactment of the grand European tour of young nobles and aristocrats, from London and Versailles to Venice and Munich.
