The perennial freshness of Grieg’s music to Peer Gynt never fails to make an impact. Stewart Goodyear’s Callaloo is a tour de force for piano and orchestra which, with its jazz rhythms and colourful orchestration, has an immediate appeal. The concert ends with Dvořàk’s most powerful and dramatic symphony, first conducted in London by the composer himself to scenes of overwhelming enthusiasm. While influenced by the German tradition, it retains Dvořàk’s own winning brand of melody.

Chineke! Orchestra is Europe's first orchestra to feature a majority of black and minority ethnic musicians. It has performed throughout the UK and abroad to great acclaim and continues to fulfil its mission to champion change and celebrate diversity in classical music.
