Sunday, January 30, 2022 at 3 p.m.

Two 18th century composers, both revolutionaries in their own right, created sparkling works that still connect today

What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • For the first time in its history, the BSO performs the music of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, who was born into slavery in the French West Indies and navigated France’s colonial “Code Noir” for a swashbuckling life of fencing, music, and revolution
  • The BSO’s own principal bassoonist Wren Saunders takes center stage in Mozart’s beloved Bassoon Concerto
