STÉPHANE TÉTREAULT

CHEVALIER DE SAINT-GEORGE - HAYDN - MOZART

Concert Webcast

Haydn’s eloquence, lyricism and spirit come to life under Stéphane Tétreault’s bow. Both tragic and complex, Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 takes shape around a simple, poignant theme that leads us from turmoil into darkness before exploding with transformative violence. Without a doubt one of his most tormented and celebrated pieces.

Son of an African slave and a rich Frenchman, the Chevalier de Saint-George was a violin virtuoso whose light, elegant compositions are in the purest tradition of 18th-century France. Lost for 200 years and rediscovered in 1961, Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C is beloved by audiences and cellists alike for its technical brilliance and scope of melody.
