Crochet Joseph Bologne aka Chevalier de Saint-Georges

France during the Revolution (1789-1799) was filled with big thinkers and action. One person who was larger than life was Joseph Bologne or the Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799). He was a real life hero of epic proportions! He was considered the best swordsman in Europe, a composer, a virtuoso violinist, a conductor and a Colonel in the French Revolution.

A brilliant life

☆ Joseph Bologne was born in the French colony of Guadeloupe to a wealthy plantation owner and a Senegalese woman named who was enslaved by his wife’s family and served as her personal maid. His father was very proud of his exceptional son and took him to France to study. Upon becoming a chevalier (knight), he took his father’s suffix “de Saint-Georges”.

☆ Virtuoso violinist and accomplished composer. Saint-Georges composed and published numerous operas, string quartets, concertos, and symphonies over a short span of time, from 1771-1779. He performed all his violin concertos as soloist with Le Concert Olympique, which included 6 symphonies.

☆ Conductor for Le Concert Olympique orchestra.

☆ He was nominated as the Director of the Paris Opera, but it didn’t happen due to the racism of some prima donnas (they didn’t want to take orders from a “mulatto”).

Known as the greatest swordsman in Europe.

U.S. President John Adams called him, “The most accomplished man in Europe.”

During the French Revolution, he was the Colonel the Légion St.-Georges, a black regiment established in 1792.

Chevalier de Saint-Georges was already famous when Mozart was still unknown at 11 years his junior.
