A big hello to all our Tafel-Fans! On Thursday morning (or very late Wednesday evening!) we set off to Asia for another exciting tour. As well as returning to China for the third time, we will play a couple of concerts in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The trip was easily the longest travel day that we've ever experienced: over 27 hours of travel!

Julia Wedman's Grand Tour - September 4, 2010

In the 17th and 18th centuries, sons of English noblemen would undertake a “Grand Tour” of Europe as a kind of “life education,” or a rite of passage into adulthood. They travelled from England to France, Italy and other countries on the continent to learn about contemporary and ancient art, architecture and music, to learn new languages, explore new cultures and make new connections with people.
