MOZART Don Giovanni Overture
BOLOGNE Aria from L’Amant anonyme
MOZART Exsultate, Jubilate
BOLOGNE Violin Concerto in A Major
MOZART Symphony no. 35, “Haffner”
Two geniuses: one called Mozart, the son of a musician; the other called Joseph Bologne Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the son of an African slave and her white master. In the 18th century, both were revered. Bologne became a beloved violin soloist, composer, champion fencing master, and hero of the French Revolution. Hearing both composers side by side in glorious music, we ask why one was forgotten…?
“An aristocratic knockout. Sorrell animates every corner of this masterpiece with crackling vitality.”
