Resonate: Concerto Grosso by Errollyn Wallen

About the piece

Errollyn Wallen’s Concerto Grosso was a compelling choice for Chineke! A vibrant composition and tour de force for the solo instruments and string orchestra, it will be rewarding to perform, as well as appealing to audiences, with its combination of dance elements and the buoyant rhythms of Baroque and popular music.

About the composer

Born in Belize, Errollyn Wallen studied composition at the universities of London and Cambridge. Described by the Observer as a “renaissance woman of contemporary British music”, Errollyn Wallen is as respected a singer-songwriter of pop influenced songs as she is a composer of contemporary new music. She is an Ivor Novello Award winner and in 2007 received an MBE for services to music.

Championed by Chineke! Orchestra
