2004

In 2004, the JPO released the internationally acclaimed world premiere recording of the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Violin Concerto.

In the same year, the JPO commissioned and performed the world premiere of ‘A Mandela Portrait’ in recognition of the 10 years of democracy in South Africa. The work was later recorded and broadcast by SABC 2 on 1 December 2004 – World Aids Day.
