Festival Concert Programs Written by Prof. Michelle Garnier-Panafieu, Laid Out by Catherine Pizon

[International Week of the Saint-Georges Festival in Guadeloupe 2011]

Prof. Michelle Garnier-Panafieu, author of Un contemporain atypique de Mozart, writes a comment in French, which we have translated. It has been added to the post "Afro-French Composer Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Born Dec. 25, 1745, Honored With Festival in 2011." We feel the comment deserves to be made a post as well:
