The Grand Tour used to mean an extended visit to Venice, Florence, and Rome (among other prominent European sites) to soak up Roman, early Christian and High Renaissance culture. Today we have a seemingly infinite number of grand tours, some in conjunction with a more recent construct, the Bucket List.
Chamber music has its own Grand Tour, and it includes a stop at the Piano Quartet in E flat, Op. 47 of Robert Schumann. A Romantic masterpiece, the quartet is possessed of some of the most astounding melodic and contrapuntal invention in all of music. Composed in 1842 in Leipzig, the work pays respect to that other musical titan and Leipzig resident, J.S. Bach. Happily, this stop on tour includes wine by Rôtie Cellars in the very space in which it is made and aged.
