PROGRAMME INFORMATION

The ‘Grand Tour’ was a 17th century tradition for upper-class Europeans to travel through Europe when they had come of age, especially to visit the major cultural centers of Paris and Rome. Follow along a similar path and hear the many styles of the 18th century European organ in this tour de force of organ music from the English, French, German, and Italian schools, including organ concertos by George Frederic Handel and Michel Corette. Featuring the Pacific Baroque Festival Ensemble and organist Mark McDonald.
