Musical Wanderlust
by Appollo’s Cabinet


Join award winning ensemble Apollo’s Cabinet on a European tour:

Until 1776, no history of music existed in the English language. To equip himself to fill the gap, musicologist Dr. Charles Burney set off on two long journeys in 1770 and 1772, to Italy, France, Germany, Bohemia (Czechia), Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands. He researched in libraries and archives, spoke to personalities in the musical world, attended musical events, and subsequently published accounts of both tours.

You’ll be taken on a Baroque musical voyage following Burney on his journey: a kaleidoscope of European Baroque music with compositions from each of the countries Burney visited, interspersed with readings of his original 18th century diary entries and anecdotes from his travels.
