MOZART Don Giovanni Overture
BOLOGNE Aria from L’Amant anonyme
MOZART Selections from Exsultate, Jubilate
BOLOGNE Violin Concerto
MOZART Symphony no. 41, “Jupiter”

Two geniuses: one was called “Mozart,” the other was called “Le Mozart Noir” (The Black Mozart). Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint- Georges, was as renowned in the 18th century as his Viennese colleague. The son of an African slave and her white master, he became a beloved violin soloist, composer, champion fencing master, and hero of the French Revolution. Hear the 2 composers side by side in this thought-provoking evening of glorious music.

“The Jupiter Symphony was an aristocratic knockout. Sorrell animates every corner of this masterpiece with crackling vitality.”
– CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER
