"Here too, the portraits seemed to stop and listen...joyous." —New York Times
Hailed by the New York Times as "perhaps the most perfect realization yet of the mission of Met Museum Presents," The Grand Tour, which sold out both performances last season, returns with music from the British Isles for triple harp in the Met's Drue Heinz Gallery for British painting; Dutch songs and dances played on the recorders, shawms, bagpipes, and lute seen in the paintings of Bruegel, Vermeer, and Rembrandt; music from sixteenth-century Spain in the El Greco gallery; and, honoring the Met's seventeenth-century Italian galleries, music composed for Concerto delle donne–the group of professional female singers who revolutionized the role of women in music during the late Renaissance under Alfonso II, Duke of Ferrara.
