Maya Youssef qanun
Elizabeth Nott percussion
Barney Morse-Brown cello
 
Born in Damascus, Maya Youssef is a virtuoso performer on the qanun, the traditional syrian 78-stringed plucked zither. Maya is the first musician from a progressive and intellectual Damascus family of writers and artists. She has performed all over the world and is the winner of the exceptional Talent award which enabled her to migrate to the UK in early 2012. Her unique innovative approach to playing the qanun has expanded her audience to international platforms, combining her extraordinary musical gifts with a generosity of outlook, warmth, humour and optimism.
When the war started in Syria, writing music was ‘no longer a choice’ and that was the birth of her highly acclaimed debut album Syrian Dreams (produced by the legendary Joe Boyd). For Maya, the act of playing music is the opposite of death; it is a life and hope affirming act. For her, music is a healer and an antidote to what is happening not only in Syria, but in the whole world.

Pip Stewart | Reflections From The Amazon (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00
2018-10-02T20:00:00+01:002018-10-02T22:00:00+01:00
HUMAN IMPACT ON A REMOTE REGION: REFLECTIONS FROM THE AMAZON
Gold mining, cattle ranching, deforestation – topics that can seem so removed from our everyday life. For the last two years, adventurer Pip Stewart has travelled on expeditions to the amazon to get a worm’s eye view of just how these issues impact the people that live there. Pip has cycled along Brazil’s Transamazonian Highway, lived with indigenous communities in Peru, and paddled Guyana’s Essequibo River from source to sea, a world first, accompanied by the local Wai Wai tribe. Through her adventures Pip has seen first-hand the destructive nature of modernity, and why protecting wild places and the rich cultures that exist within them is so important.
Perhaps it is humanity, and the choices we are all making, sometimes unknowingly, that is the biggest danger of all. Is so-called development actually hindering the progression of humanity? From building new roads, to buying gold, palm oil or beef, is it time we re-evaluated the choices we make and resulting impact we are having on the world?

Julia Hülsmann Trio (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00

Julia Hülsmann piano
Marc Muellbauer double bass
Heinrich Köbberling drums
 
It would be hard to imagine German jazz without Julia Hülsmann and her trio, who for 18 years now have helped shape contemporary jazz in the country and beyond. The Berlin-based pianist makes her Turner sims debut with music from her latest ECM release Sooner And Later, an album which distils the experience of journeys to distant destinations.
 
Sooner And Later is an album that grows in appeal with repeated listening. The trio masters interplay and while that dynamic takes precedence over solo time, there are numerous opportunities to appreciate each of the players individually. The quieter moments are warm and enveloping, each with a distinct personality. Where the trio displays their more energetic side, they show a brilliance for creating complex and highly engaging melodies. Sooner And Later is a significant achievement for a trio that had set a high bar, long ago. All About Jazz

Bach Two-part Inventions 12-15, BWV 783-786
Arvo Pärt Für Anna Maria
Liszt Piano Sonata in B minor, S178
 
Cordelia Williams’ programme opens with works by two composers who explore the ways in which two musical lines interweave and interact, responding to and changing one another: Bach’s Two-part Inventions, where the hands echo and answer one another, and Arvo Pärt, his tintinnabuli music, where the focus is on the intervallic relationship between two lines. The second half features one of the monuments of the piano repertoire. The 30-minute single-movement B minor sonata is dedicated to Schumann, and has been described by Alfred Brendel as ‘surpassing in originality, boldness and expressive range, anything written in this genre since Beethoven and Schubert’.

Tonight she makes a welcome return to Turner sims, with music from her new album MIZIKI, probably her boldest, most personal album, and one which pays homage to the two principal causes she supports: a rich, generous and unified Africa and the strength of African women.
 
WOMAD’s best act. The Guardian
 
Gnahoré’s not-so-secret weapon for lifting her performance to another level was her wild, acrobatic dancing, which she saved for exactly the right moments. The Boston Globe

In January 1937, one of the great musical partnerships began in the New York recording studios, when Billie Holiday teamed up with trumpeter Buck Clayton and members of Teddy Wilson’s band. For much of the next twenty-two years, Buck and Billie continued to play and record together. In this special presentation, the Buck Clayton Legacy Band (led by bassist and broadcaster Alyn Shipton, presenter of Jazz Record Requests on BBC Radio 3) is joined by vocalist and brilliant Billie Holiday interpreter Julia Biel, to explore that musical treasure trove. From Back In Your Own Back Yard to Good Morning Heartache, many favourites are there, including Teddy Wilson-style charts of some of the numbers that Billie only recorded with big band or orchestra, plus the emotional punch of pieces such as God Bless The Child.

They have moved audiences from Donegal to Tokyo to Seattle with their heartwarming, dynamic live performances and with their exquisitely produced, award-winning recordings that range from the most touching old Irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs. Throughout their career, Altan has shown unwavering commitment to bringing the beauty of traditional music to contemporary audiences, particularly that of the Donegal fiddlers and singers.
 
Tonight they perform music from their new album The Gap of Dreams, transporting us to the lifestyle of rural Donegal, to a time before electricity when folks would gather together in the mists of winter to tell stories, sing songs and dance into the wee hours of the night.

Renowned for his insights into the music of Beethoven and Schumann, Jonathan Biss features both composers in this recital. Written in 1801-02 shortly before the Eroica symphony, Beethoven’s sonata contains no slow movement, and is the last of the sonatas to feature a minuet. The eminent american pianist and scholar Charles Rosen described Davidsbündlertänze as ‘the subtlest, most mysterious and most complex of all Schumann’s large works.’ Mozart’s minuet is also known in the orchestral version which Tchaikovsky made in his suite Mozartiana.

Nik Bärtsch piano
Sha bass clarinet, alto saxophone
Thomy Jordi bass
Kaspar Rast drums
 
The extraordinary pianist and composer Nik Bärtsch brings his group Ronin to Turner sims for the first time to present music from his new ECM album Awase.
 
A term from martial arts, Awase means ‘moving together’ in the sense of matching energies – a fitting metaphor for the dynamic precision, tessellated grooves and balletic minimalism of Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin.
 
Despite the multiplicity of the band’s influences, Ronin’s music always possesses a strong individuality. They incorporate elements of disparate musical worlds, be they funk, new classical music or sounds from Japanese ritual music.

Ousmane Ag Mossa vocals, lead guitar, acoustic guitar
Aghaly Ag Mohamedine djembe, vocals
Cheick Ag Tiglia bass, acoustic guitar, vocals
Paul Salvagnac lead and rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar
Nicolas Grupp drums, percussion
 
There’s a raw beauty in Tamikrest’s rock’n’roll. It’s there in the driving, insistent groove that powers the songs, the lean, snaking bass lines and the guitars that twine and twist around the melodies, and the utterly natural musical blending of Sahel Africa, the Maghreb, and the West – a reflection of influences as diverse as Pink Floyd, Rachid Taha, and flamenco. Yet the Sahara, and the people who live there, is always firmly at its heart.
 
All around Kidal, the Malian desert stretches in every direction. Fought over, conquered and re-conquered, it remains the symbol of Tuareg defiance and hope, the spiritual home of a dispossessed people. It is also the town in which Tamikrest first came together as a group, and on Kidal, Tamikrest’s fourth studio album, the band pays homage to this place that’s nurtured them and their people.

Magnus Öström drums
 
Turner Sims is excited to present one of the first opportunities to experience the new supergroup of three major minds in European music history, as award-winning Norwegian pianist Bugge Wesseltoft joins forces with two friends and innovative forces in European jazz: Magnus Öström and Dan Berglund. With the groups New Conception Of Jazz and e.s.t. (esbjorn svensson trio) they created parallel music history, which dates back to the mid-90s. Both formations defined a new, fresh sound on a worldwide scale – with great openness for experimentation and radical thinking ahead. The result was an international music movement that became an inspiration of future generations.
 
The music of the new trio RYMDEN is based on three elements: melancholic and atmospheric songwriting, dramatically charged rhythms and virtuously played jazz of the highest level.

2018-11-27T20:00:00+00:002018-11-27T22:00:00+00:00
The legendary pianist Alfred Brendel made his final concert appearance with the Vienna Philharmonic on 18 December 2008.
 
Since then he has turned to his second great passion, the written word. His books, essays and poetry, written in German, have been translated into many languages and he continues to give lectures, talks and poetry readings at major festivals and concert halls throughout Europe and North America. His most recent book, A Pianist’s A to Z, was published in English in 2013.
 
In this evening’s lecture, Alfred, no friend of autobiographies, presents a survey of his musical life. The emphasis is on the word ‘musical’ as he holds the opinion that the private person and the artist are not an equation, and one doesn’t necessarily illuminate the other. He considers what stimulated, formed and amused him in the course of his distinguished career, and to point out how it is feasible in this profession to remain largely independent.

The Fisk Jubilee singers were a choir of emancipated slaves who set out in the 1860s to raise money for their university in Nashville, Tennessee, which was the only American university to admit black students at that time. They astounded audiences across America and Europe with the plantation spirituals and ‘songs of sorrow’ that had never been heard before on a public stage. They came to London where they performed before Queen Victoria, Prime Minister Gladstone and the great and good of the land to universal acclaim, but they also came to Southampton on March 26th 1874, and performed at the Hartley Institute (forerunner of the University of Southampton).
 
An opportunity to hear many of the greatest spirituals – Go Down, Moses, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and many others, while paying tribute to the choir who brought them to the attention of the world.

David Owen Norris presenter
The Music Department Singers
 
Our Vaughan Williams Series concludes with a seasonal celebration. Vaughan Williams loved Christmas and had a lifelong passion for carols, which manifested itself through his music but also his role as co-editor of The Oxford Book of Carols. First published in 1928 the book has become the cornerstone for choirs and choral societies in the lead up to Christmas.
 
Having marked the centenary of the first publication of Vaughan Williams’ other hymnbook association, The English Hymnal, in 2008, this evening David Owen Norris is our guide through the enduring book of carols for all ages. The evening is an opportunity to hear some of the carols, both familiar and unfamiliar, as well as join in with some wonderful festive singing. If you have a copy of the book, bring it along – and do stay for mulled wine and mince pies in the foyer afterwards!

2018-12-12T09:30:00+00:002018-12-12T16:00:00+00:00
Science teaching has a very good health and safety record. Nevertheless, science teachers must comply with health andsafety legislation as there are many hazardous chemicals, living organisms, pieces of equipment and procedures in use in school laboratories. There are many pitfalls to trap the unwary, particularly newly-qualified science teachers. As well as knowing how to work safely, new teachers also have to develop the skills needed to run a successful practical lesson. As part of the course we will consider what this means and offer suggestions and tips based on new CLEAPSS publications. Course led by Matt Endean.

Do people think irrationally?

Yes, they do! No, wait. It’s complicated…Why don’t you come to this seminar and make up your own mind? Whereas it is fashionable lately for magazines, newspapers, popular science writers and others to pronounce us to be irrational, bad thinkers, bad decision makers, one should read beyond the headlines—and perhaps reconsider? I will present to you puzzles, examples and arguments from decades of research. We will discuss together what the ‘right’ answers are. I am guessing that we will not all agree, but we can try to have a rational discussion about irrationality.

There is another side to Christmas…far away from Bing crooning and Noddy screaming…it’s a place where the story of Jesus’ birth is retold with genuine wonder and celebrated with the dignity, passion and beauty it deserves. Turner Sims is delighted to welcome back Cara Dillon, possessed of one of the most celebrated folk voices to have come out of Ireland, who is touring her Christmas show Upon A Winter’s Night for a third year running this December.
 
Cara and her band will once again capture the mystery of Christmas with a collection of songs ancient and modern providing a welcome reminder that the festive season can be about more than just commercialism. A far cry from Jingle Bells and Santa Baby Cara will be joined by her wonderful band who weave celtic and folksy rhythms alongside reverent and atmospheric carols while Cara holds the darkness at bay with the purity of her voice.
 
Cara’s acclaimed Christmas album Upon A Winter’s Night reached Number 1 in the Indie Album Charts not once, but twice in 2016. Christmas is one of Cara’s passions and her live show and album only go to prove it.
