LE MOZART NOIR resurrects the lost genius of Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a black composer famous in 18th century France. The son of a slave, Saint-Georges overcame adversities of class, race and prejudice to become a musical star who would inspire Mozart. Tragically, his music and legacy were lost to history. Canada’s internationally acclaimed Tafelmusik Orchestra champions Saint-Georges’ long-silenced music.
