Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799) was an Afro-French composer who was also France’s best fencer. During the French Revolution he was Colonel of a legion of Black volunteers, and fought heroically. His works were seldom played after 1803, when Napoleon reinstituted slavery in France’s colonies.  The music of Saint-Georges was played with increasing frequency in the late 20th century, and much of it has been recorded since the 1970s.
