Introducing the Bridge Ensemble, a wind quintet supported by Music in the Round, who champion music by marginalised composers from backgrounds under-represented in chamber music. Featuring Valerie Coleman’s joyous Kwanzaa dance ‘Umoja’ and concluding the first half with Èkó Scenes, a brand new Afrobeat-inspired work by the group’s clarinettist Ọlá Akindipe, this concert is an inviting tour through unjustly overlooked works and also features the beguiling and bluesy ‘Summer Music’ by Samuel Barber, best known for his ‘Adagio for Strings’.
