This concert investigates the modal and tonal characteristics of 18th century Scottish music influenced by that of Italy, looking at the works of Italians in Scotland or those making settings of Scottish repertoire (Bocchi and Geminiani), the hybrid style of James Oswald, the sounds of traditional Scottish melodies with a Highland pipe piobaireachd, dance repertoire and two song arrangements. The program also includes works by the fiddling giants of the latter half of the century, Niel Gow and Robert Mackintosh, both of whom were influenced by the music of Corelli. Corelli's Op 5 no 9, is said to be Gow's favourite amongst his sonatas.
