Part of the Oxford Philharmonic Online 2021-22 Series

Add to my Calendar 14-10-2021 19:30 14-10-2021 21:30 36 Chevalier de Saint-Georges & Mozart II ONLINE In the mid-1760s the child prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart took Paris by storm, but at the end of the same decade, Parisians witnessed the rise of another virtuoso, the violinist Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. The illegitimate son of a wealthy planter and one of his slaves, born in the French colony of Guadeloupe, Joseph first came to prominence as a champion fencer. But it was as a musician that he left a greater legacy, as a soloist and concertmaster in Paris and as one of the first known classical composers of African origin. This series of two concerts pairs the works of the two composers, who were shaped by similar musical traditions but radically different backgrounds. This second concert begins with Mozart’s Divertimento in B flat major which is followed by Chevalier de Saint-Georges’s Symphonie Concertante in G major, a fine example of a genre which he pioneered. The concert concludes with Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Concerto.

Programme Note

In the mid-1760s the child prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart took Paris by storm, but at the end of the same decade, Parisians witnessed the rise of another virtuoso, the violinist Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. The illegitimate son of a wealthy planter and one of his slaves, born in the French colony of Guadeloupe, Joseph first came to prominence as a champion fencer. But it was as a musician that he left a greater legacy, as a soloist and concertmaster in Paris and as one of the first known classical composers of African origin.

This series of two concerts pairs the works of the two composers, who were shaped by similar musical traditions but radically different backgrounds.

This second concert begins with Mozart’s Divertimento in B flat major which is followed by Chevalier de Saint-Georges’s Symphonie Concertante in G major, a fine example of a genre which he pioneered. The concert concludes with Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Concerto.
