D.’ (To my dear little Chouchou, with tender apologies from her father for what follows).

 The eldest of the world-famous Kanneh-Mason siblings, Isata has continued to make waves both on disc and in concert. In 2021, she received the 2021 Leonard Bernstein Award and was selected as a 2021–22 European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Star.

Anne Tallentire: Material Distance (11:00)

11:00 - 2023-01-14 17:00
2022-10-08T10:00:00Z2023-01-14T17:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, England

This autumn, legendary conceptual artist Anne Tallentire comes to John Hansard Gallery for a major solo exhibition.

Tallentire encourages us to think again about the spaces and environment that we inhabit. Questions of how we occupy both public and private space are brought to the fore in works that utilise everyday materials, systems and structures.

The significance of the spaces we all inhabit is intriguingly revealed. We are encouraged to think about how our daily lives are impacted by the conditions in which we live. One work, made specially for this exhibition, directly relates to Wyndham Court in Southampton. Plans, measurements, proportions and diagrams are animated and made relatable through Tallentire’s thoughtful depiction of this iconic building.

The specific qualities of the John Hansard Gallery spaces and location are brought beautifully into focus through both new and existing works. Using sightlines between buildings and referring to neighbouring architectural space, Tallentire adapts and roots her work to its locality. However, despite the modest means by which the works are made, Tallentire raises significant questions about the built environment, housing provision, the economics of labour, and the ongoing inadequacies of social housing and its societal impact.

Anne Tallentire (b. County Armagh, Northern Ireland) has lived and work in London since the 1980s. She has exhibited extensively in the UK and internationally and is Professor Emerita at Central St Martins, London (where she taught from the early 1990s to 2014). In 2018, Tallentire was a recipient of the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists.

Anne Tallentire: Material Distance is organised in partnership with The MAC, Belfast and Hollybush Gardens, London, supported by Henry Moore Foundation. A publication will be produced in conjunction with the exhibition, including new texts and extensive photography throughout. To be published in January 2023.

Liza Sylvestre: asweetsea (11:00)

11:00 - 2023-01-14 17:00
2022-10-08T10:00:00Z2023-01-14T17:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, England

This autumn, John Hansard Gallery presents a new exhibition by artist Liza Sylvestre.

asweetsea explores what it means to communicate. The first solo show by artist Liza Sylvestre outside of the United States, asweetsea comprises newly commissioned moving image, together with drawings, sculptures and audio works.

As an artist who is deaf, and whose child and partner are both hearing, Sylvestre tries to locate where her disability lives within their family structure. Through her work, Sylvestre investigates the complicated edges of distinctions. What does hearing mean? What does deafness mean? What does disability mean? Where do these things begin and end?

In a new film, Sylvestre has collaborated with her 6-year-old child to reimagine an animated cartoon from the artist’s own childhood. Sylvestre’s fond memories of the Sweet Sea cartoon evolved at a time when she had a very different sensory makeup. Now, as her hearing child relays their experience of the film, Sylvestre reworks the animated material to fit their description. Captioned conversations between parent and child convey both the sound and the emotion of their interaction. Vividly coloured and shimmering with undersea motion, their remake engages generational experiences of disability, interdependence, sensory memory, communication, and time.

To accompany the film, Sylvestre has created clear resin sculptures and diagrammatic drawings. Memories of Sweet Sea toys amalgamate with components from contemporary cochlear implants. Illustrations for the assembly of these implants overlap Lego construction diagrams in Sylvestre’s new drawings. The structure of language within a family is made visible as an investigation of overlapping systems. Also explored in the exhibition is the role of description in creating access. Silent screens and audio tour headsets bring additional layers of imagery, sound, access and interpretation.

Liza Sylvestre (b.1983) lives and works in Illinois, USA. Her work was previously included in the group exhibition, Many Voices: all of them loved at John Hansard Gallery in 2020.

asweetsea is Sylvestre’s first solo exhibition in the UK, and is curated by Sarah Hayden as part of Voices in the Gallery, an AHRC funded research project, with additional support from the University of Southampton’s Higher Education Innovation Fund.

Note on Access: The works in this show can be accessed in multiple ways. The videos include open captions in English and integrated verbal descriptions. Two audio tours are installed on headphones. One tour describes the visual aspects of the artworks and the other is a creative exploration, an audio artwork. Captions for both tours are displayed on screens within the space. To further expand access and audience, we have included videos of these two audio tours on this page.

Supported by Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Florence Price Quartet No 2 in A minor
Beethoven Quartet No 8 in E minor, Op 59 No 2 Rasumovsky

On 15 June 1933, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performed a new piece by an unknown composer. The work had won first prize in a competition. The Chicago Daily News declared it ‘a faultless work, a work that speaks its own message with restraint and yet with passion… worthy of a place in the regular symphonic repertoire.’

The unknown composer was Florence Price. She was the first African American woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra. Join us tonight as the Elias Quartet perform her Quartet No 2 as part of their programme.

The Elias Quartet begin with Haydn’s rarely heard quartet, one of a set of six written for the King of Prussia. The evening closes with Beethoven’s popular quartet, one of the set of three dedicated to Count Rasumovsky.

The Elias String Quartet is internationally renowned as one of the leading ensembles of their generation. Known for their intense and vibrant performances, the quartet has travelled the globe playing in the world’s great halls. The Elias Quartet were Turner Sims Associate Artists from 2012-15. They gave memorable cycles of the quartets of Beethoven and Schumann.

CHEP in-person workshop: Using Threshold Concepts to help students ‘get’ difficult ideas (12:00)

2022-10-12T11:00:00Z2022-10-12T12:00:00Z
Additional Place Info: Highfield Campus

​Threshold Concepts represent the pivotal “eureka” moments in learning, where a person makes a leap in their understanding or ability.  According to Meyer and Land, they are “akin to a portal, opening up a new and previously inaccessible way of thinking about something” (2003, p. 1). Crossing these thresholds can be transformative, integrative, irreversible, but also troublesome and bounded within a particular domain.  This session introduces the idea of threshold concepts, and provides strategies to identify and address these concepts in teaching and learning activities in your subject area.

Interpretive Political Science

Additional Place Info: University of Southampton, Southampton, England

Many students in the social sciences, especially in political science, public policy and public administration who decide to undertake qualitative or interpretive research, feel they are unqualified to do so.

They express deep-seated confusion about the reliability and generalizability of data, results, and conclusions. They feel that interpretive approaches lack the type of specialised training that has become commonplace in quantitative political science.

The aim of this course is to redress this gap. We will equip students with a toolkit that will enable them to both conceptualise and execute an interpretive project.

A meeting to define and refine the aims of the new KEE Community of Practice at the University of Southampton. 

 

This event is for all staff on any pathway who have an interest in KEE.

 

We are delighted to invite you to the inaugural meeting of a new “Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise Community of Practice” at the University of Southampton on Wednesday 26th October, 2-3pm.

A member of the highest echelon of living guitarists… fluent technique, great beauty and variety of sound, finely controlled emotional response, and stylistic sensitivity.

Gramophone

Fabio Zanon is one of today’s outstanding guitarists. As a solo and chamber player, author, conductor, teacher and broadcaster, he has sought to expand the perception of the guitar in the concert scene.

In 1996, Fabio won first prize in two of the most important international guitar competitions. He has since performed as a recitalist and concerto soloist in more than 50 countries.

Tonight, Fabio’s programme includes works by both Spanish and Brazilian composers. He also features a work by Vincent Lindsey Clark, who himself performed at Turner Sims earlier this year. Shadow of the Moon is a favourite with many solo guitarists, in part inspired by Lindsey-Clark’s discoveries as an amateur astronomer.

Threshold Concepts represent the pivotal “eureka” moments in learning, where a person makes a leap in their understanding or ability. According to Meyer and Land, they are “akin to a portal, opening up a new and previously inaccessible way of thinking about something” (2003, p. 1). Crossing these thresholds can be transformative, integrative, irreversible, but also troublesome and bounded within a particular domain.

This session introduces the idea of threshold concepts, and provides strategies to identify and address these concepts in teaching and learning activities in your subject area.

…this is seriously good music, beautifully played by two jewels of British jazz.’ London Jazz News

Join us as British Jazz stars, Courtney Pine and Zoe Rahman perform music from Courtney’s new album SPIRITUALITY.

Courtney Pine CBE OBE was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene in the 80s. His debut album Journey to the Urge Within became the first serious jazz album ever to make the British Top 40. Zoe Rahman is a vibrant and individual pianist and composer. Her style is rooted in jazz, yet reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste.

Courtney and Zoe last toured together with the sublime Song, The Ballad Book. The project saw Courtney on bass clarinet and Zoey on grand piano, performing beautiful, stripped back ballads. These were some of the most intimate shows of Courtney’s long and celebrated career.

This year, the duo reunite for a string of concerts to celebrate and debut brand new music from SPIRITUALITY, due for release in the Autumn. A string quartet joins them for a very special live experience.

Beethoven Quartet in A, Op 18 No 5

Britten Quartet No 1, Op 25
Dvořák Quartet No 13 in G, Op 106

Join us for an exciting and passionate performance from one of the world’s great ensembles.

The Takács Quartet are praised for their flawless balance between rich individual playing and compelling sound. They are among the world’s most accomplished chamber ensembles – and one of its most musically distinctive.

Tonight’s programme opens with one of Beethoven’s first set of quartets. It continues with music by Britten and Dvořák written at significant moments in both composers’ lives. Initial ideas for Dvořák’s penultimate quartet came whilst he was living in America. The work itself was written and premiered after he returned to live in his native Bohemia.

Britten’s quartet was commissioned by the American patron Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge. He composed the work in the humble surroundings of a garden tool shed during his stay in California. The work premiered in Los Angeles and Britten told his benefactress that he rated the quartet as ‘my best piece so far’.

Additional Place Info: Turner Sims

A very special night with visionary South African pianist, composer, and healer Nduduzo Makhathini.

Nduduzo Makhathini grew up in the lush, rugged landscape of umGungundlovu in South Africa. The area is historically significant as the site of the Zulu king Dingane kingdom between 1828 and 1840. Zulu, in fact the African warrior code, is deeply reliant on music for motivation and healing. Nduduzo’s experiences as a traditional Zulu healer are inseparable from his improvisational performance.

Nduduzo’s music draws influence from South African jazz legends such as Bheki Mseleku, Moses Molelekwa, and Abdullah Ibrahim. He also blends flavours from the great American jazz canon – like John Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, and Randy Weston. The result is a cross-continental, multilayered melodic groove.

Tonight Nduduzo performs music from his tenth studio album, released in 2022, In the Spirit of Ntu.

…what you’ll feel most acutely isn’t incorporeal but deeply human, a potent brew of fury, joy, and solidarity. Jazz Times

An evening of captivating West African sounds.

His fascination with Mali’s rich musical traditions and instrumentation is central to his continued success. These sounds permeate his latest album Kharifa. Recorded in Bamako in 2019, it features guests including Toumani Diabaté.

Tonight, Habib Koité and his band Bamada are supported by Gambian kora masters Sura Susso and Jally Kebba Susso. Cousins from the same family of griots, they are each prodigious talents in their own right.

‘Lewis is one of the great Schubertians of our time.’ Gramophone

20 years on from his first survey of Schubert at Turner Sims, Paul Lewis begins a four concert series exploring the composer’s piano sonatas.

Paul Lewis is one of the leading musicians of his generation. His studies of piano works by Beethoven and Schubert have received worldwide critical and public praise.

Tonight opens with the E flat sonata left in unfinished form in D flat in 1817, then transposed, revised and completed by the composer around 1826. The A minor work dates from 1823, while the D major piece, sometimes called the ‘Gasteiner’ Sonata, was composed in the Austrian spa town of Bad Gastein in 1825. It would be the only one of the three works this evening to achieve publication in Schubert’s lifetime.

2022 marks the 30th career anniversary of outstanding English folk musician and President of the EFDSSEliza Carthy MBE.

To mark this significant milestone, she will be releasing a new album Queen Of The Whirl with her band The Restitution. The album features re-recordings of some of her ‘greatest hits’ and audience-favourites from past 30 years, including songs from her three Mercury Award nominated albums.

Eliza turned pro (or quit college, depending on if you ask her or her dear departed mam) in 1992. Since then she has toured all over the world. She has danced with Hugh Masekele in Ghana; crossed the Prairies, the Alps, and the waters of Lake Titicaca, playing the fiddle and spreading the word of English traditional music.

Queen Of The Whirl is her celebration of thirty years of silliness and profundity, with a crack team of brilliant musicians. Thirty years of music reimagined, from Billy Bragg to Peggy Seeger, from The Ratcatchers to Imagined Village, from bloody boots in Trafalgar Square to the moors of North Yorkshire, and everywhere between. It’s been quite a ride!

Be moved and inspired by some of the greatest songs for peace ever written.

Throughout the 20th century, injustice and bloodshed inspired a powerhouse of songs. These songs express anger, pain and sadness, but also hope for a better future. Musical maestro Harvey Brough has arranged stunning new choral versions in this latest concert from USV.

Sheryl Crow wrote one of the great anthems for peace after visiting war-torn Bosnia in 1995. Her Redemption Day was reworked by Johnny Cash after the outbreak of the Iraq war eight years later. Nina Simone reframed Kurt Weill’s Pirate Jenny in the early 1960s as a cry for revenge in America’s Southern states. Rodgers’ and Hart’s wistful Spring is Here has moved many artists, including Ella Fitzgerald and the Supremes.

The USV perform with stellar soloists Christina Gill and Clara Sanabras. The band is headed by pianist Liam Dunachie and bassist Oli Hayhurst.

Altogether now (in the words of Nina Simone):

Everything must change,
Nothing stays the same.
Winter turns to spring.
Wounded heart will heal.

Immerse yourself in Indian classical music through Khayal, Bhajan, Taraana and the energy and excitement of Sufi music.

Southampton-based Indian classical singer Pooja Angra leads a distinguished quartet of musicians as she premieres her new project.

Creative Unity explores both poetry and music compositions from medieval India (8th to 16th century). This period saw an influx of embracing languages, cultures, and music traditions from various other parts of the world. Great poets and composers of the era such as Meera, Baba Nanak, Tulsidas, Kabir, Bulle Shah and Amir Khusrow created many masterful works. These creations acted as a catalyst for social inclusion.

The poems were composed in a variety of languages including Sanskrit, Hindi, Punjabi, Rajasthani, Avadhi, Braj and Urdu. They carried rich messages on moral values, social awakening and societal beliefs.

Pooja is joined by her brother Karan Rana, tabla player Mitel Purohit and sitar player Baluji Shrivastav, OBE. Their heartfelt music weaves medieval poetry into musical threads built on rich Indian classical music traditions. Tonight, the group’s captivating compositions showcase the art of improvisation.

Haydn Quartet in B flat, Op 33 No 4

Haydn Quartet in D, Op 33 No 6
Schubert Quartet in A minor, D804 Rosamunde

‘a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music’

Gramophone

Our Associate Artists have a unique sound which comes from them performing on gut strings and with historical bows.

For their latest visit, the Chiaroscuro Quartet perform two of the Op 33 set of quartets which Haydn described as written ‘in a new and special way’. It has been suggested this was a marketing pitch to subscribers. However it was also a reflection of the fact that the works are lighter and less serious than their predecessors. Schubert’s work is the only one of his 15 quartets to be performed and published in his lifetime. It is so-called because it incorporates some of the incidental music the composer wrote for the play of the same name.

Playing with gut strings is one thing; playing with such assuredness and golden musicality on them is another. Scotsman
