Ashay’s Price: $18.95

Description: Joseph Bologne was one of the most famous men in 18th-century France. The son of a slave and a French nobleman in Guadaloupe, the ambitious Joseph moved to Paris, where he was christened the Chevalier de Saint George. During his extraordinary life, he conquered every limitation by becoming a champion swordsman, violin virtuoso, composer, and military commander in the French Revolution. From the plantations of the West Indies to the palace at Versailles, The Other Mozart details the true story of a remarkable man. Illustrated by original paintings and archival materials, the Chevalier de Saint George’s inspiring and affirming story lives on. (48 pgs) Ages 5-10

Ashay says, "I know when I was growing up, I don’t remember, Saint George being mentioned during discussions on European history.  If he was, it was not emphasized that he was a Black man.  So famous and talented.   His life is important, because it acknowledges his contribution to classical music and the culture of that era.    Also I am sure our young music students will be happy to read about him. A must have for the classroom!"
