A strong educational portfolio is increasingly important in supporting career progression for all staff involved in education, and particularly for those in teaching focussed roles.  However, it can be a challenge to engage in the kinds of activity that contribute to such a portfolio given the pressures associated with the multi-faceted role of the modern academic. 

This workshop will give practical examples of how colleagues can develop their educational portfolio in a way that complements the ‘day job’, supporting enhanced effectiveness as well as enhancing the CV.  Pathways to Senior/Principal Fellowship of the HEA will be discussed, along with the prestigious National Teaching Fellowship administered by AdvanceHE. 

The workshop will be facilitated by Prof Shelley Parr and colleagues who have achieved promotion on the education pathway here at Southampton.

Xuefei Yang is acclaimed as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists. Hailed as a musical pioneer, her fascinating journey began after the Cultural Revolution, a period where Western musical instruments and music were banned. Fei was the first-ever guitarist in China to enter a music school and became the first internationally recognised Chinese guitarist on the world stage.

Fei is one of the few guitarists whose artistry connects with audiences far beyond the guitar fraternity. Her international success has led her to be invited to play in more than 50 countries at numerous prestigious venues and is frequently invited to play with the world’s leading orchestras, and collaborate with artists such as Ian Bostridge, Rosalind Plowright, Sir James Galway.

Gramophone magazine praised her as one of the leading innovators of her generation for continuing to build the guitar repertoire. Fei has made many acclaimed recordings for major labels. Her first (for EMI) received a gold disc and her second (also for EMI) was selected as ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone magazine. Fei’s recent releases include a solo album Colours of Brazil (Decca), Songs from our Ancestors which continues her successful collaboration with Ian Bostridge, EP Summertime (Apple Music) and Sketches of China (Decca).

Presented by Southampton Classical Guitar Society in association with Turner Sims

​This series is aimed at Research staff and ECRs


Series Overview:

In this workshop, we provide an introduction to some of the core skills and tools needed to produce reliable, sustainable, and reproducible workflows for research data management. The core skills taught are: - Manipulating data in Spreadsheets using traditional programmes e.g. Excel and in the data specific program OpenRefine. - Using the shell/bash which is a text base interface that allows for more precise, efficient, and in-depth control of the computer and its file systems. - Using Git/Github a version control and collaborative working tool that keeps track of previous versions of files and code and can show differences and contributions from many collaborators. - Using R to load, process, and visualise data. As well as demonstrating some best practice for writing clear code. Each of these lessons are suitable for learners who have never used these tools before or have had some experience and are looking to go back to basics to formalise their understanding.

 

Learning Outcomes:

- Learn the basics of Spreadsheets, Shell/Bash, Git/version control, and R.

- Use traditional and data-focused spreadsheet tools to load, manipulate, clean, and analyse data.

- Be able to manage and manipulate directories containing thousands of files, process the data and provide output from the command line.

- Use Git to start a project, make changes and commit changes to Github.

- Write an R script that opens a file, processes the data and visualises the result.

 

Series Details:

"Introductory Research Data Management with R" is a seven part series which runs from 8th – 17th August 2022. You are welcome to book for all seven sessions, or just for those you feel you need. The exception is sessions 5-7, which are all focussed on R, and all need to be attended.

A strong educational portfolio is increasingly important in supporting career progression for all staff involved in education, and particularly for those in teaching focussed roles.  However, it can be a challenge to engage in the kinds of activity that contribute to such a portfolio given the pressures associated with the multi-faceted role of the modern academic. 

This workshop will give practical examples of how colleagues can develop their educational portfolio in a way that complements the ‘day job’, supporting enhanced effectiveness as well as enhancing the CV.  Pathways to Senior/Principal Fellowship of the HEA will be discussed, along with the prestigious National Teaching Fellowship administered by AdvanceHE. 

The workshop will be facilitated by Prof Shelley Parr and colleagues who have achieved promotion on the education pathway here at Southampton.

Mozart Quintet for piano and winds, K452

Mozart Horn Quintet in E flat, K407
Brahms Horn Trio in E flat, Op 40

A magical evening of chamber music.

Felix Klieser, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Artist in Residence, is joined by pianist Danny Driver and principals of the orchestra.

Mozart composed his quintet for for piano, horn, oboe, clarinet and bassoon in 1784, a year in which he wrote six piano concertos. Mozart played piano for the first performance and wrote to his father afterwards that it was ‘…the best thing I have written so far in my life.’ Mozart’s Horn Quintet is scored for an unusual string combination including two violas. This gives it a deeper sonority than that of a regular string quartet. Full of gentle, amiable music, it has been compared to a miniature horn concerto: the horn frequently given a starring role.

Brahms’ Trio is regarded as one of his greatest chamber works. The instrumental combination (piano, horn, and violin) was almost unheard of before he wrote for it. Noble, with a hint of melancholy and mystery, it makes for a multi-faceted rather than a one-dimensional experience.

One of the most inspiring figures on the concert scene today. The Times on Felix Klieser

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.

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.

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.

ELIZA CARTHY & THE RESTITUTION | 30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00

Eliza Carthy fiddle, voice

Saul Rose melodeon
Dave Delarre guitar
Phil Alexander piano
Ben Seal bass
Willy Molleson drums

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!

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON VOICES | EVERYTHING MUST CHANGE (19:30)

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
