Pacific Baroque Orchestra: Le Mozart Noir
Alexander Weimann music director
Monica Hugget violin soloist
One of the greatest composers of the early classical period was Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Known as "Le Mozart Noir”, he was one of the earliest musicians of the European classical tradition to have African ancestry. Incredibly, this son of a slave overcame adversities of class, race, and prejudice to become a major musical star all over Europe inspired by both Mozart and Haydn. Today, he is almost entirely forgotten. This program includes several of his violin concertos, orchestral works by Mozart and one of Haydn’s Paris Symphonies. This concert will be preceded with a screening of a Canadian-made documentary on St George’s life featuring Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra.

As one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century, Michel Foucault’s reputation today rests on his political philosophy in relation to the contemporary subject in a neo-liberal and globalized society.
