 Update me on new releases by Roschmann

Dorothea Roschmann (b1967)


In an age of remarkable individuals Joseph Boulogne, le Chevalier de Saint-Georges occupies a unique position as an athlete, violin virtuoso and composer. He is the archetypal romantic hero; spectacularly gifted and destined always to be the outsider, his life the stuff of legend.

The son of a former councillor in the Parlement at Metz and a negress from Guadeloupe, Joseph Boulogne was born near Basse Terre, Guadeloupe, and lived for some time on an estate on St Domingue (now Haiti) before his family finally settled in Paris in around 1749. At the age of 13 Saint-Georges became a pupil of La Boëssière, a master of arms, and also had riding lessons with Dugast at the Tuileries. He fought his first public fencing match in Paris with Giuseppe Gianfaldoni on 8 September 1766 and although he lost his opponent predicted that Saint-Georges would become the finest swordsman in Europe.
