Concerto Caledonia – Corelli’s Legacy in Scotland
Aaron McGregor, Gabi Maas – violins; Lucia Capellaro – cello; David McGuinness – harpsichord, fortepiano
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
