About this Event

Chineke! Ensemble

Coleridge-Taylor Piano Quintet in G minor, Op.1

Schubert Piano Quintet in A, D667

Premiered in 1893, Coleridge-Taylor's charismatic four-movement quintet was written at the age of eighteen. The influence of his favourite composer, Dvorak, as well as Schubert, is evident in the inventive, melodic lines and rich tone colour of this Post-Romantic piece, demonstrating a remarkable self-assurance for one so young.

This is complimented by Schubert's innovative Trout Quintet composed in 1819 when he was just 22 years' old. The fourth movement features variations on his earlier Lied, Die Forelle and is scored for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass rather than the more usual piano and string quartet configuration.

Chineke! Ensemble comprises principal players of the critically-acclaimed Chineke! Orchestra, Europe's first majority Black Minority Ethnic (BME) orchestra. Founded in 2015 by distinguished international double bassist Chi-chi Nwanku OBE, Chineke!'s mission is to champion change and celebrate diversity in classical music.

The ensemble made its debut in 2017 in Manchester followed by concerts at Wigmore Hall, Cheltenham and Ryedale festivals in 2018. It has since performed at the Tonbridge Music Club, Wimbledon International Festival, Cambridge Music Festival, St George's Bristol, The Africa Center in New York, The Stables in Wavendon and Petworth Festival.
