Chineke! Orchestra

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Nonet 25’
Strauss arr. Franz Hasenoehrl Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders! 9’
Schubert Octet 65’

2017 saw their thrilling debuts at Cheltenham Music Festival and the BBC Proms, and this summer Chineke! returns in chamber ensemble formation with a focus on later classical repertoire. An organisation dedicated to providing career opportunities to Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) classical performers, Chineke! also gives space to composers whose time in the spotlight is long overdue. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Nonet stands shoulder to shoulder with Schubert’s ever popular Octet, either side of an arrangement of Richard Strauss’ rousing tone poem Till Eulenspiegel.

Pre-Concert Talk: Samuel Coleridge-Taylor

Sunday 15 July, 10-10.40pm
Pittville Pump Room, Oval Room

Using materials from the Royal College of Music’s extensive and fascinating archive, Anna Maria Barry introduces us to alumnus Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, not just a fantastically talented composer and musical celebrity, but also an important force within the civil rights movements in Britain and the US.


Pittville Pump Room

Pittville Pump Room is an elegant Grade 1 listed Regency building and perhaps the most famous example of Regency architecture in Cheltenham. Standing in regal splendour at one end of Pittville Park, the Pump Room is a monument to more than 100 years of fame that Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town.

The Festival’s morning recitals at the Pump Room are its continuing glory
