Chineke! Orchestra | Europe | November 2019
Nov 2019 - Nov 2019

Introduction

The ground-breaking Chineke! Orchestra – Europe’s first majority-BME orchestra – embarks on its first major European tour this autumn, presenting a programme that features the romantic Violin Concerto of Samuel Coleridge Taylor alongside works by Brahms and von Weber. The orchestra will travel to Bruges, Amsterdam, Cologne, Antwerp and Aachen.

The orchestra’s programme centres on Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Violin Concerto. Commissioned by the Norfolk Festival in Connecticut, the original score was destroyed on the Titanic, and Coleridge-Taylor – who sadly died before he could hear the first performance of the work – had to hastily rewrite the piece from memory. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was one of the first Afro-British composers ever to break through internationally.
