SPRING SEASON

Turner Sims, September 2014

WELCOME With this season we complete our milestone 40th anniversary programme. I’m delighted that we follow a star-studded Autumn with an equally eminent Spring. There are some mouth-watering events and series to look forward to, many of them created exclusively by or for Turner Sims.

WELCOME turnersims.co.uk 2

Our Associate Artists the Elias Quartet and London Sinfonietta reach the end of their formal three-year partnerships with two fascinating takes on music history. Schumann’s three quartets are comparative rarities in chamber music programmes and the Elias’ three-concert series plus associated talks, specially created for Turner Sims, will be an opportunity to re-evaluate these important works in the composer’s canon. Meanwhile, the London Sinfonietta and composer Fraser Trainer guide us through the music of the last 100 years. In our jazz line-up it’s a particular pleasure to present a special weekend focus on saxophonist John Surman. John’s music has been a regular part of the Turner Sims programme over the past two decades and in his 70th birthday year it is fitting to celebrate the work of this master instrumentalist and composer. Reaching 70 in a different

way is the Borodin Quartet who stop off on a worldwide tour to perform works from two composers with whom they are synonymous: Beethoven and Shostakovich. And with Pascal Rogé, joined by his wife Ami, presenting French repertoire; Chopin competition winner Yundi performing an all-Chopin programme; and Emma Kirkby exploring the golden age of Early Music there are opportunities galore to see artists in repertoire for which their interpretations are justifiably celebrated. Our Ruby Campaign continues apace as we seek to deliver the second phase of our revamp to the building following the Summer 2014 refurbishment of the auditorium seating - I’m hugely grateful to everyone who has supported the appeal thus far. Do consider helping us achieve our plans as we reach the end of the 40th anniversary. We’re keen to keep the impetus going as we improve the visitor and artist experience at Turner Sims for generations to come. Join us this Spring for more GREAT MUSIC LIVE.

Kevin Appleby Concert Hall Manager

PIANO SERIES

PIANO SERIES

The music of Chopin and some of the defining works written for the piano feature in the second half of the series performed by some of the instrument’s greatest exponents, many of them competition winners.

Two prize winners from the Chopin Competition – Ingolf Wunder from 2010 and Yundi, outright winner in 2000 – make their debuts with Chopin and, in Wunder’s case Liszt too. Another winner – of the 2012 Leeds Competition – is Federico Colli and his debut showcases his approach to a range of repertoire, from Mozart’s glorious variations to Scriabin’s technically challenging last sonata.

A different challenge is faced by Christian Blackshaw who closes the series with Schubert’s monumental last three sonatas. Lastly Pascal Rogé, known for his solo and chamber recitals here, visits with wife Ami Rogé for a magical evening of music for four hands on one piano. French repertoire, of course, is to the fore.

Pine and Zoe Rahman and Andy Sheppard showcasing music from his new quartet album. New material also comes from Norwegian Marius Neset whilst American Ravi Coltrane completes an extraordinary quintet of saxophonists. Legendary Brazilian group Azymuth revisit their 1975 debut album Azimuth, and we journey from Brazil to Manchester

to welcome GoGo Penguin, whose debut comes hot on the heels of earning a 2014 Mercury nomination for their acclaimed album v2.0. Finally no celebration past and present would be complete without a vocal element. Ian Shaw and swinging New York band Hot Sardines both guarantee celebratory occasions whatever repertoire they are presenting.

SCHUMANN SERIES ASSOCIATE ARTISTS

ELIAS QUARTET SCHUMANN SERIES

Following his year-long immersion in song in 1840 and orchestral music in 1841 Robert Schumann spent 1842 focussing almost exclusively on chamber music, producing three string quartets, a piano quartet and a piano quintet. For the last of their three years as Associate Artists the Elias Quartet

present an exclusive series centred around the three quartets. Across three concerts the Elias place Schumann’s works in context with the composers who influenced him, as well as British music from the past 40 years and today. Each event is preceded by an introduction to Schumann the composer and the music for the evening.

Ingolf Wunder grabbed the attention of a wide public when he won second prize at the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 2010, the year of Chopin’s bicentenary. For his Turner Sims debut he performs Chopin and Liszt including the Hexaméron Variations. The composers were friends for a period when both were in Paris, and in 1837,

Princess Belgiojoso invited six composers, including Liszt and Chopin to write variations on a theme fromBellini’sopera Ipuritani. Liszt organised the effort, and composed the introduction, interludes and finale, but the most notable contribution came from Chopin, who ironically transforms the rousing martial sung chorus into a beautifully cantabile larghetto for solo piano.

SCHUBERT

Thurs 14 May 8pm PIANO SERIES MAY PIANO

CHRISTIAN BLACKSHAW Christian Blackshaw brings the 2014-15 Piano Series to a close with an evening of monumental music: Schubert’s final three sonatas, haunting works written in an extraordinary outpouring of masterpieces just months before the composer’s death in 1828.

MAY

2014 saw soprano Claire Booth feted for her performances in the lead role of Garsington Opera’s The Cunning Little Vixen (...her Vixen is beyond compare, both in the way she moves and acts, and in the soaring beauty of her sound. The Independent); the opening concert of the 2014 Edinburgh International Festival in August; and Welsh National Opera’s production of Rossini’s Moses in Egitto. Tonight this outstanding artist gives an intimate recital with a programme that includes Grieg’s masterpiece, arguably one of the greatest song-cycles for the female voice ever written.

THE HOT SARDINES

Fri 15 May 8pm All tickets: £20

MAY JAZZ

Take a blustery brass front line, add salty stride piano in the timeless image of Fats Waller and a frontwoman with the attitude and style of a 30s cabaret diva and you have The Hot Sardines in a seashell. And that’s not to mention the tap dancer! The Sardine sound is steeped in hot jazz, gypsy swing – a slice of between-the-wars Paris via New Orleans. Catch them as they take the world by storm. Promoted by Serious in association with Turner Sims.

JUNE

2013 was an amazing year for Gisela João: her debut album was unanimously acclaimed as the Best Portuguese Album of the Year by major magazines and newspapers, achieving gold record status. Following her sold-out concerts at the Casa da Música and Belem Cultural Centre, it became evident that her music revealed a unique and extraordinary fado singer. Tonight is one of the first opportunities to see this compelling artist in the UK.
