"An insight into the music that appealed to contemporary audiences."
Early Music Review, October 1999 more reviews

The programme takes the listener on the route followed by travellers like Lord Burlington and Robert Adam and presents the musical complement to the great art collections acquired on The Grand Tour. Taken from manuscripts and contemporary editions the Parisian shows, the opera in Italy, the Roman Soirées and the traditional music of Naples and Venice, all described and collected by tourists, are represented.
