The concert will feature a Sonata by an extraordinary historic figure: the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a gifted mulatto who became nothing less than Marie-Antoinette's music teacher, a virtuoso violinist and also a quasi-invincible fencer. This music survived the post-mortem destruction of his musical output by Napoleon in his rage against black rebels in Haiti.
