Joseph BOULOGNE, CHEVALIER DE SAINT-GEORGES (1745-1799), the black Mozart vc opus2 no.2

April 4, 2012 at 11:43 AM

Because of the time in which he lived they call composer Joseph BOULOGNE, CHEVALIER DE SAINT-GEORGES (1745-1799) "the black Mozart", but perhaps you could call Mozart "the white Boulogne", because his violin concertos and not much less than those of Mozart, but Mozart is so much played as great composer and is on the Austrian 1 euro coin and Joseph Boulogne is forgotten.
