Music that turned Paris on its ear!
The musicians of 18th Century Mannheim were so virtuosic that music historian Charles Burney dubbed them ?generals.? We?re fortunate to welcome three modern-day ?generals? of our own for an evening of challenging masterworks by five of the era?s leading composers ? including the Afro-French pioneer known as ?The Black Mozart.? Come hear the music that turned Europe on its ear.?
