Seattle Baroque Orchestra: Le Mozart Noir


Benaroya Hall Downtown
Fri., Feb. 3, 7:30 p.m. 2017


Recommended by Jen Graves

Often referred to as the first classical composer of African origins, Joseph Boulogne gained the title in Paris, where he rose to lead the most exciting orchestras in the 18th century, as "Le Mozart Noir. The Chevalier de Saint-Georges was born on the island of Guadeloupe, the son of a Senegalese slave and a French colonialist. He overcame massive prejudice to become an influential marker of the era's musical traditions. Seattle Baroque Orchestra will resuscitate his inspiring memory again with several of his violin concertos, alongside orchestral works by Mozart and one of Haydn’s Paris Symphonies.
