Callaloo, perhaps best known as a popular Caribbean dish, is also a virtuosic tour de force for piano and orchestra composed by young Canadian composer/pianist, Stewart Goodyear. Full of driving jazz rhythms and colourful orchestration, Callaloo is an immediately appealing work.
Having opened the last Birmingham Classical season, Chineke! make a welcome return as the final orchestra to perform in this season.
