Searchlight Pictures’ “Chevalier” Original Motion Picture S…


Hollywood Records is has announced the 12″ 2-LP vinyl album release of Chevalier (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) with an original score by Kris Bowers, including two new tracks, “VIOLIN CONCERTO IN C MAJOR, OP. 5, NO. 1: I. ALLEGRO” and  “VIOLIN CONCERTO IN A MAJOR, OP. 5, NO. 2: II. LARGO” available exclusively on the vinyl.

  • Included on the album are on-camera performance tracks produced and arranged by Michael Abels, and songs composed by Joseph Bologne, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Alessandro Scarlatti.
  • Inspired by the incredible story of composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. The illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner, Bologne (Kelvin Harrison Jr. in a tour de force performance) rises to improbable heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer, complete with an ill-fated love affair and a falling out with Marie Antoinette (Lucy Boynton) and her court.
  • With Bologne’s incredible talent and charisma, some liken him to an 18 century rock star, with Michael Abels calling him “the Prince of his day.”
  • You can order your copy of the Chevalier Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on vinyl here.
  • The Soundtrack is also available on all digital platforms.
