Sail across musical boundaries in this programme by Chineke!

Fela Sowande came to London in 1934 and had a distinguished career in England, Nigeria and the USA. His music combines Western tradition with his native Yoruba culture. Perhaps his best-known work, the African Suite is packed full of open-hearted melodies in its five short movements.

Cassie Kinoshi is a Mercury Prize-nominated and Ivors Academy Award-winning composer and saxophonist. Her short concerto for the distinctive sound of the handpan was written for tonight's soloist, who herself won a Royal Philharmonic Society award for her work with the instrument.

Max Richter fused the musical DNA of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with his own style. The result topped the charts in 22 countries and has now been recorded by Chineke! – take this chance to hear it live.

Listening to Max Richter's reimagining of Vivaldi's much loved Four Seasons is a hugely satisfying experience.
