Journeys through Europe were an educational rite of passage which flourished through the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. Searching for art, culture and education through the exposure of classical antiquity and the Renaissance, they became extremely fashionable with the polite upper English classes. Tracing our journey through music of the ages and various cities visited, this is a concert steeped in the wonderment of European Baroque, featuring seasoned favourites and lesser-known gems by Purcell, Handel Vivaldi and others.
