This is a biography of The Chevalier de Saint-Georges. "Now, over two centuries after his death, the legacy that Saint-Georges left to posterity is as multifaceted as his attributes: fairness, honor, strength, courage, and a passion for justice. But above all, he left us a musical heritage that has enriched our knowledge and appreciation of that most human of instruments: the violin." -Gabriel Banat ["Epilogue"] This book was originally published by Pendragon Press in 2006.
