Scottish born Classical period composer Philip Antony Corri (1784-1832) began making a name for himself also as a musical theorist and educator with his L'anima di musica and his work in helping to found the London Philharmonic Society. However, it seems that personal problems caused him to flee for the United States in 1817, where he changed his name to Arthur Clifton and became a composer, teacher, church organist, performer, music publisher, and dry-goods merchant. He is most remembered through his piano works.
