Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745 – 1799) was a Guadeloupean Creole classical composer, virtuoso violinist, a conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris, and a renowned champion fencer. In 1773 he was appointed director of the orchestra Concert des Amateurs, a group described as “…performing with great precision and delicate nuances and became the best orchestra for symphonies in Paris, and perhaps in all of Europe.” This concert explores some of his chamber music, including sonatas for two violins, a string quartet, piano quartet, a sonata for cello and piano, and a violin concerto.
