Tunde Jegede kora
Programme features new works by RBC composers: Kailan Barton-Porter, Millicent James, Yuqian Zhang, Adam Parry-Davies and works from Tunde Jegede’s repertoire.
Tunde Jegede’s work has changed the face of classical and contemporary music in Europe and Africa. He is one of the only composers in the world steeped in both Western Classical Music and the Griot Tradition of West Africa. This unique cultural inheritance informs his work as a composer and multi-instrumentalist, creating links between European classical music and that of Africa.
Tonight he performs a number of new pieces composed for him by musicians of Royal Birmingham Conservatoire’s composition department, as well as a selection of works from his own repertoire.
