Chineke! Orchestra : with conductor Jonathon Heyward and Tai Murray

With conductor Jonathan Heyward and violinist Tai Murray

Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges Overture to L'amant anonyme
Haydn Violin Concerto No 1 in C major
Elgar Serenade for Strings
Mozart Symphony No 29 in A major K201

With its debut concert described as 'a significant moment in our cultural life' by The Independent, the Chineke! Orchestra is the most diverse orchestra working in Europe, its aim to champion change and celebrate diversity in classical music. They appear in Salisbury following sell-out performances across the UK, and ahead of their much-anticipated BBC Proms 2017 appearance. 

The overture from the opera L’Amant anonyme was written by the 18th century black composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint- Georges, who, as a virtuoso violinist, led the orchestra in Paris for whom Haydn wrote his Paris Symphonies. Tai Murray, a BBC New Generation Artist 2008-10, makes her Festival debut with a performance of Haydn’s first Violin Concerto. A pair of classic scores complete the programme, Elgar's youthful string serenade and a symphony by Mozart that marked his coming of age in the form.
