About

In few words:

The artists of the Academy are back on the Garnier’s stage for an exceptional concert gathering some rarely performed pieces by Joseph Bologne de Saint-Georges, better known as the Chevalier de Saint-

George. An important figure of the court of Louis XVI, Saint-Georges taught music to Queen Marie-Antoinette (at least, when he wasn’t dueling against the Chevalier d’Eon as a champion fencer). A virtuoso violinist, he composed many Chamber music works and some opéras comique, working with authors such as Choderlos de Laclos. A potential Director of the Royal Academy of Music, his application was denied by a handful of artists who refused the idea of a man born a slave as their leader. Tonight, the artists of the Academy pay a tribute to his work and the work of his contemporaries, young Mozart and Gréty.
