Steinway Magazine — “wonderful company, wonderfully organized…..Besides the music; it is really about the region – the culture, history, cuisines, and food;” “completely special – particularly as it offered visits to festivals such as La Roque d’Anthéron, an amazing piano festival…”
Gourmet Magazine — “A VERY GOOD EAR: If music and fresh produce sum up your idea of the good life, consider a tour of Bordeaux, from a company called Music and Markets, that hopscotches all over the region visiting some of the loveliest towns while stopping most evenings for a musical interlude. Three nights are spent dining to a classical ensemble at La Musique, the beautifully restored 18th-century salon on the wine estate of Le Faure; also on the program is a grape-based treatment at Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa.”
Cultural Travels: “By combining two great themes, Anne and Kirk Woodyard allow travelers to indulge a range of senses through great food, shopping, and some of Europe’s best music festivals. Such delights as Prague’s Spring Festival, Jazz in Italy and Amsterdam’s wonderful Canal Festival are just a few of this year’s tempting trips. From great castles to intimate gardens, the settings are sure to inspire and the music is sure to please.”
