Chineke! is the brainchild of Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE, who says, ‘My aim is to create a space where black minority and ethnic musicians can walk on stage and know that they belong.’ For this afternoon concert, Wayne Marshall conducts an attractively lyrical work by neglected black composer, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, a lively new work by American pianist Stewart Goodyear and a stalwart symphony, Dvorák’s magnificent Seventh.
