by the Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799)
celebrated  Black composer, violinist, and Europe's champion fencer, edited from the original manuscript by Dominique-René de Lerma

The finest of the piano works by this Créole composer: an elegantly stated bittersweet melody demanding a subtle and expressive interpretation, a very sensitive work, suitable for young musicians, yet in the repertoires of Natalie Hinderas, Raymond Jackson, Maria Thompson Corley, Eric Conway, and Richard C. Alston.
