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.
