Augustin Hadelich Performs Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-George's Violin Concerto in A in Houston and New Jersey

Sep. 01, 2021

Violinist Augustin Hadelich leads the Houston Symphony and appears as soloist in performances of Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges's virtuoso Violin Concerto in A on September 24-26. Concerts will take place in person and the September 25th performance will be livestreamed as well. Hadelich will also perform the Violin Concerto in A with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and conductor Nicholas McGegan on October 14, 16, and 17. The NJSO program includes Boulogne's Overture to L’amante anonyme and Beethoven's Symphony No. 2 and Romance for Violin and Orchestra No. 2

Hadelich became better acquainted with the music of Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges during the COVID-19 lockdowns. He pondered:

"How is it possible that somebody so celebrated during his lifetime could be erased so completely from our history books? In music history class, I never learnt his name, though I remember seemingly memorizing the names of just about every Italian and French composer of the period. If Viotti and Clementi could find a spot in the Canon, why not Chevalier de Saint-Georges? Happily, Saint-Georges may finally get his long-overdue recognition, as his name appears on many programs this year."
