Kevin Appleby Concert Hall Manager Celebrating the past and creating for the future are the strands for a Spring series which offers an array of new talent and musical treats. 2013 sees anniversaries for classical heavyweights Verdi and Wagner. Towering over them for Turner Sims and many others though, is the centenary of Benjamin Britten. Our Britten focus, which launched with cellist Matthew Barley’s extraordinary solo recital in January, continues through the year with Spring explorations of chamber and orchestral music. Composers John Woolrich and Sally Beamish will be with us in April and May respectively to offer their own thoughts on the Britten year (and in Sally’s case to introduce the world premiere of her new work). Another notable anniversary is the 60th of the first ascent of Everest. Mountaineer Stephen Venables is here in June to mark the occasion. Enjoy other ‘Everests’ too in the form of the complete Bach Orchestral Suites from the Academy of Ancient Music and our on-going complete Beethoven quartets series with Associate Artists the Elias Quartet. Burt Bacharach, Charlie Parker, and Duke Ellington have no major anniversaries to mark in 2013 but are the inspiration for new projects with vocalist Ian Shaw, pianist Django Bates’ trio and saxophonist Mark Lockheart’s all-star band which form part of our Jazz@Turner Sims season. Trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth and pianist Benjamin Grosvenor have taken the classical world by storm and I’m delighted that we can welcome them for debut performances this season. Folk performers Sam Lee and Lau are newcomers too, both having been omnipresent in end of year best album polls. With MOBO Award winner Zoe Rahman, American minimalism from the London Sinfonietta, jazz from New York in the form of The Bad Plus and down under from Trichotomy, plus pianist John Lill in his 70th birthday year, I hope you find much to excite and intrigue you over the coming months.

La Serenissima

ORCHESTRAS LIVE From Bach and Vivaldi to Reich, Riley and Glass the Spring orchestral series, presented in association with Orchestras Live, spans four centuries of music. Bach’s Orchestral Suites, performed by the Academy of Ancient Music showcase grand and graceful dances whilst La Serenissima’s new programme celebrates two years in Vivaldi’s life when his focus was on theatrical endeavours. Creative endeavours of a different kind can be found in the London Sinfonietta’s latest Landmarks programme. Explore the origins of American minimalism and experience classic works including Steve Reich’s Clapping Music and Terry Riley’s In C live. Live performance was an integral part of Benjamin Britten’s life as a performer and conductor. Turner Sims’ contribution to the composer’s centenary year features not only his music but that of composers he knew and admired as well as contemporary reflections. The orchestral highlight is the world premiere of Sally Beamish’s new work which the Academy of St Martin in the Fields present in May. Another eminent British composer, John Woolrich, presents a specially curated programme in April.

JAZZ @ TURNERSIMS The Spring jazz series looks across continents for its inspiration with British, European, American and Australian names. A quartet of legendary names are the inspiration for part of the season. Duke Ellington, Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and Charlie Parker are the starting point for new projects from saxophonist Mark Lockheart, vocalist Ian Shaw with SYJO, and pianist Django Bates respectively. And Django Bates’ European trio contrasts with two others on view in the Spring: Trichotomy make a welcome return to offer their antipodean perspective on jazz while America’s The Bad Plus bring their distinctive brand of trio jazz to us in May. A strong UK offering features three pianists: MOBO Award winner Zoe Rahman; Robert Mitchell premiering his left-hand project; and Ivo Neame whose Quintet forms part of a double-bill with trumpeter Neil Yates’ trio to celebrate Edition Records’ fifth birthday. Finally Get the Blessing are joined by their Portishead bandmate Adrian Utley for an evening guaranteed to blow away the cobwebs.

BACH’S ORCHESTRAL SUITES Following the huge success of the AAM’s acclaimed Brandenburg Concertos project which Turner Sims presented in 2010, Richard Egarr and his musicians now turn their attention to another pinnacle of JS Bach’s instrumental music. The Orchestral Suites are a series of grand and graceful dances, paying homage to the French baroque style, as championed by the ballet-obsessed King Louis XIV. Written during Bach’s years in Leipzig, where he had a wider range of instruments at his disposal than ever before, the Suites revel in new sonorous possibilities and employ varied combinations of wind, brass, stringed instruments and timpani.

CHLOE HANSLIP

Tuesday 19 February – 8pm Popular violinist Chloë Hanslip makes a welcome return to Turner Sims with a diverse programme of music for the instrument. Heifetz was a good friend of Gershwin and his affection for the material is evident in his arrangements of songs from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. They retain all the character of the original songs, but with the addition of virtuosic elements such as doublestopping and jazzy flourishes to showcase Heifetz’s performing style. Whilst Beethoven’s sonata is one of the most well-known, Delius’ 1892 work went unpublished during his lifetime but has found an enthusiastic following since its rediscovery in the 1950s. Bloch described his First Violin Sonata, written soon after the First World War, as representing ‘the world as it is: the frantic struggle of blind and primordial forces’.

In the writings of Paul Richter, Robert Schumann discovered a world of humanity turned inside out. Richter’s varying images of human nature inspired Schumann’s Carnaval, a series of kaleidoscopic pianistic portraits shaped by characters real, mythological and both. Stephen Hough negotiates their almost orchestral sonorities here alongside Brahms’ majestic Third Piano Sonata and two of Chopin’s most spellbinding Nocturnes. But the centrepiece is a sonata by Hough himself, who in composing mode ‘speaks with substance, fluent ease, confidence and communicative immediacy’ according to Gramophone magazine.

Formed in 2000 when bassist Jim Barr and drummer Clive Deamer from Portishead joined forces with the twin horns and electronics of saxophonist Jake McMurchie and trumpeter Pete Judge, GTB have forged a unique signature sound that defies easy classification, yet never loses sight of thumping tunes, monstrously infectious beats, or joyous collective spontaneity. Tonight GTB will be joined by fellow Bristolian and guitarist Adrian Utley, widely known for his work with Portishead, who performed on Get The Blessing’s latest release OC:DC. With influences ranging from Ornette Coleman and Tortoise, to Blondie and Samuel Beckett, GTB consistently confound expectation.

ETRAN FINATAWA

Friday 7 June – 8pm Among the grasslands of the Sahel and the shifting sand dunes of the Sahara desert, two legendary nomadic peoples, the Wodaabe and Tuareg, are joined together through the raunchy guitars, camel-gait percussion and haunting voices of Etran Finatawa. Reflecting on their roots and with a nostalgia and warmth that mirrors the majesty of their desert home, these musicians have toured constantly all over the world since the release of their BBC Award-nominated first album in 2006. Many of the group’s songs reflect their longing to return to their roots – the nomadic lifestyle which relies on cattle, the great expanse of the Sahelian grasslands and never-ending dunes of the Sahara. Never before have the clear, piercing vocals of the Wodaabe been heard in a contemporary context, infused with swirling Touareg guitars and hypnotic, driving, calabash rhythms.

DJANGO BATES BELOVED “Bird Lives” was the prophetic graffiti seen on a New York wall soon after jazz legend Charlie Parker’s death and it continues to testify to the remarkable time-capsule from the future that was bebop. In tonight’s concert, pianist and composer Django Bates and his Belovèd trio present the compositions of Parker and Bates’ own from their new album Confirmation. Django’s originals stand in their own right but also serve to recontextualise Parker’s lines, using the same rhythmic and harmonic signature that is brought to bear in his astonishing reworkings of Donna Lee, Confirmation, et al.

Bates now has one of jazz’s great piano trios on his hands. His restless questing after new experiences probably won’t keep it there for long . The Guardian

STEPHEN VENABLES THE EVEREST STORY Stephen Venables is one of the world’s greatest mountaineers who has done innumerable climbs from the Eiger to Everest. He is perhaps most famous for achieving the first ascent of Everest by the huge Kangshung Face from the Chinese side, which he made without oxygen, reaching the summit alone. Because it was by then afternoon, he had to spend the night alone, just below the summit without a tent, then the highest ever bivouac, followed by an epic 3-day descent without food. Tonight’s talk coincides with the 60th anniversary of the first successful ascent of Mount Everest. 2013 is also 25 years since Stephen’s own first successful ascent to the mountain’s summit. He will discuss Mount Everest, the lives of those who have attempted to climb her, the geography of the region and more. In association with the Royal Geographical Society with IBG

ASSOCIATE ARTISTS

ELIAS QUARTET THE BEETHOVEN PROJECT III The Elias Quartet continue their presentation of all of Beethoven’s quartets with a programme which includes the first of the ‘late’ quartets, Op 127. The Op 18 work contains many humorous touches whilst the musicians at the premiere of the first Rasumovksy quartet in 1807 felt that Beethoven was playing a joke on them. In response he declared that the music was ‘not for them but for a later age’. The Elias Quartet’s Beethoven Quartets cycle is supported by the Friends of Turner Sims
