Fung, Bologne + Brahms
Joseph Bologne, le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, was an 18th century composer (and swordsman) born to a white plantation owner and a Black slave. If you haven’t heard of him, you won’t soon forget his charming Symphony No. 2. This work pairs perfectly with Johannes Brahms’ cheerful second symphony. The concert opens with Canadian composer Vivian Fung’s Prayer, written during the pandemic and inspired by a chant by Hildegard von Bingen.
