Sat Feb 4
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.
8:00 pm, Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard St
A Northwest Baroque Masterworks Project in collaboration with Early Music Vancouver.
