They called it the Grand Tour, when 18th century youngsters would travel Europe in search of culture, learning, and a bit of fun on the side! Tonight, 18th-century music expert Benjamin Bayl takes the Orchestra on a musical Grand Tour: there’s timeless beauty from Bach, the latest Italian fashions from Corelli, spicy new flavours from Rameau in France and a bit of magical mischief from England’s very own Henry Purcell. And to finish, Handel’s ever-popular Water Music. All aboard!
