Chineke! stormed last summer’s BBC Proms with a sensational debut, one of many opportunities it creates for young Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) classical musicians.

Its Wigmore debut includes impassioned music by Florence Price, the first African-American woman to break through as a symphonic composer.

  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
        • Septet in E flat major Op. 20
  • Florence Price (1887-1953)
        • String Quartet in G major (European première)
  • Richard Strauss (1864-1949)
        • Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders (arr. Hasenöhrl)
