Concerto Caledonia celebrate the restoration of the Ardkinglas Clementi square piano, in some characteristically domestic chamber music with flute and violin. Along with trio sonatas by two of JS Bach’s most successful composer sons, Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christoph Friedrich, there is music from two Scottish violinist-composers, the mercurial Robert Mackintosh, and William McGibbon, whose music was still revered half a century after his death. Finally, as a taste of early 19th-century Edinburgh society nightlife, music for dancing and entertainment that was published as souvenirs from Nathaniel Gow’s celebrated annual quadrille Balls, held in Edinburgh's Assembly Rooms from 1817 onwards.
