In the eighteenth century many young men of the Scottish aristocracy and gentry went on the Grand Tour through France to Italy. There they met the latest great composers, among them Corelli from whom some of them also had lessons. Concerto Caledonia explores music by (and inspired by) the great Arcangelo Corelli.
“Concerto Caledonia’s unique performance style is to deliver early music with a panache that is impeccably informed, beautifully refined, yet ignited by a cheeky and compelling charm” – The Scotsman
The Georgian Concert Society acknowledges financial support from the Scottish Early Music Trust in respect of this concert. The Trust’s funds are generated from the assets of the former Scottish Early Music Consort. The principal aim of the Trustees is the encouragement of live performances of early music within Scotland.
