Happy Birthday, Amadeus!

Martin Kuuskmann
We begin the festivities with Symphony No. 2 by Chevalier de Saint-Georges, otherwise known as Joseph Bologne. A contemporary of Mozart, Bologne was born the son of an aristocratic French plantation owner and an African slave. Despite the racial intolerance of the time, Bologne emerged as a virtuoso composer, violinist, and swordsman, leading a prestigious orchestra in Paris and performing personally for Marie Antoinette. He is often compared to Mozart for his compositions which some have cited as possible sources of inspiration for Mozart’s own compositions.
