Exploring themes of slavery and freedom, Mighty River combines contemporary classical techniques with spirituals which were introduced to Hull in 1871 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers – an African-American a cappella choir of ex-slaves. The piece, written for orchestra, takes its inspiration from William Wilberforce the English politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade who was, very fittingly, a native of Hull. Errollyn Wallen's brilliant CONCERTO GROSSO (commissioned by Orchestra of the Swan and published by Peters Edition) will be performed in the opening concert of Classical:NEXT in Rotterdam on May 17th. The performers are Chineke! featuring Chi-chi Nwanoku on double bass, Tai Murry, violin and Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano. Conductor is Shaun Matthew.
