Zachary Wilder & Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien - Forever Fortune: Scottish Music from the 18th Century

A unique combination of traditional and classical styles is what makes 18th century Scottish music so compelling. Italian composers, specifically Arcangelo Corelli, had a great influence on composers such as William McGibbon, James Oswald, Robert McIntosh and many others. But all of them, without exception, remained true to the traditional Scottish themes, adapting them to the forms and harmonies of the Baroque style. “With superlative virtuosity, François Lazarevitch and his musicians whirl the listeners away, leaving them with their heads in the stars”, Classica wrote. Combining Scottish dance music, songs and airs with variations, Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien present an exceptional programme in which the poetry of early instruments is combined with the energy of traditional music.
