Vienna Piano Trio (15:00)

15:00 - 17:00

David Mccarroll violin
Matthias Gredler cello
Stefan Mendl piano
Schubert
 Sonata for cello and piano in A minor, D821 Arpeggione
 Fantasy in C for violin and piano, D934
Herzogenberg
 Piano Trio No 2 in D minor, Op 36 (1882)
Sunday afternoon with our Associate Artists brings music by two 19th century composers, one very familiar and one influential and yet relatively unknown. Herzogenberg was a friend of Brahms whose music, whilst distinctive, was largely overshadowed by that of his contemporary. Schubert’s Arpeggione sonata takes its name from the stringed instrument for which it was written. No longer in existence when the work was finally published in 1871, it has become familiar in arrangement for either viola or, to open this concert, cello.
Ticket price includes complimentary cup of tea and slice of cake.

2017-01-21T10:00:00+00:002017-01-21T16:00:00+00:00
The stunning sites and landscapes of Avebury, Stonehenge and Old Sarum in Wiltshire mark some of the most nationally important archaeological landscapes in Britain, and the focus of research over the course of the 20th century. These landscapes cover ritual complexes, settlements and strongholds spanning from the Neolithic to the medieval period, and while the sites are well-known archaeologists are discovering new and exciting insights into how they functioned and the people who built them. This study day will look at the importance of these different sites, their landscape context, and how they changed through different periods, from the later prehistoric complexes of Avebury and Stonehenge, to the Iron Age. Romano-British and medieval monuments of Old Sarum and Salisbury. It will look at past archaeological research and perceptions of the monuments, and will present the results of new research, including archaeological fieldwork at Old Sarum and its environs.

Recently united to record a track and sing at the Barbican launch for Clara Sanabras’s A Hum About Mine Ears CD, three original Wallbangers, joined by two new members had such a fine time singing together that they decided to do some more. With this new line up for a new millennium, they revisit some of the vocal harmony material from the first time around – songs like Paper Moon / Sunny Side of the Street, adding some material written specially for this appearance. If you remember what the fuss was about, or want to find out why they were such a beloved band in the (ahem) 1980’s – this is for you.

A new look at the housing consequences of union dissolution in Britain (15:00)

15:00 - 16:00
2017-02-16T15:00:00+00:002017-02-16T16:00:00+00:00
Part of the CPC Seminar Series.
 
Speaker: Rory Coulter, University of Cambridge
 
Abstract
Many studies have shown that union dissolution often has adverse short- and long-term consequences for the housing careers of men and women. However, much of this research concentrates on who exited and subsequently re-entered homeownership after separating during the late twentieth century boom in owner-occupation. As homeownership has become less accessible in recent years and a growing proportion of households now rent privately, it is becoming increasingly important to also know more about how men and women living in rental accommodation adjust their housing and living arrangements in response to partnership dissolution. In consequence, we use up-to-date and geocoded data from the initial waves of the United Kingdom Household Longitudinal Study to assess how and why the short-term housing outcomes of separation vary by gender, tenure and across Britain. This seminar will present and discuss some initial findings from this ongoing project.

Mozart - Piano Trio in G, K496
Schoenberg - Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night),Op 4 (1899) in the version for piano trio by Eduard Steuermann.
Schubert - Piano Trio in B flat, D898

Tonight our Associate Artists open with a defining work by Mozart. Composed in 1786 when his career was flourishing, K496 is the first known piano trio in which the three instrumentalists are treated as equals in contrast to simply supporting the keyboard. Schoenberg’s masterpiece Verklärte Nacht is heard in the sumptuous arrangement made by his pupil Eduard Steuermann in 1932. Schubert’s joyous Piano Trio in B flat, closes the programme. Dating from the composer’s final years and published posthumously, Robert Schumann said of it: A glance at Schubert’s trio, and all miserable human commotion vanishes, and the world shines in new splendour.

A five-star international Gypsy jazz line-up as Mozes Rosenberg – the most recent guitar genius from the Rosenberg dynasty and younger brother of Stochelo – joins violin superstar Tcha Limberger and his trio. Since picking up his first instrument the guitar, composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Tcha Limberger is one of a handful of world class musicians to have become accepted and respected in a style of music culturally not their own. Born into a renowned Belgian family of Manouche musicians, he grew up in a world of the Gypsy swing style of Django Reinhardt, and over the years he has collaborated with many of its leading performers, including the celebrated Fapy Lafertin. Put Tcha – a spectacular guitarist himself – on stage with Mozes Rosenberg and you have something close to Gypsy jazz royalty. Expect guitar mastery and swinging Reinhardt classics mixed with traditional western European Gypsy repertoire.

2017-02-18T10:00:00+00:002017-02-18T16:00:00+00:00
Film has from its very first days been a way of relaying images of travel and escape. From early travelogues in exotic lands to fantastical visions of imaginary worlds, cinema provides an invitation to explore distant realities, as well as to see the world around us anew. This study day will delve into the importance of journeying to film, as seen in genres like the road movie, sci-fi and fantasy as well as documentary realism. It will consider the journeys taken by film itself, from financing and shooting to distribution and exhibition across global networks of festivals and film theatres. It will offer ways of understanding movies as moving pictures, demonstrating the artistry of films in producing thrilling speed and epic action or their opposite, stasis. In an age of global interaction and migration, it will also provide insight into the political and ethical issues surrounding film, both as an industry and as a way of commenting upon our contemporary lives.

Violinist Chloë Hanslip has been a regular visitor over many years. She and pianist Danny Driver present a complete cycle of Beethoven’s violin sonatas – a first for the artists and for Turner Sims. These 10 works re-defined the landscape for the violin and piano repertoire. Across three concerts we have the opportunity to understand them with insights from Chloë and Danny and other contributors. It promises to be a fascinating journey.

All but one of Beethoven’s ten sonatas were composed over a six-year period when the composer was in his late twenties and early thirties. Tonight’s first recital in Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver’s series features works from the first two sets of three, Op 12 and Op 30.

2017-03-03T13:00:00+00:002017-03-03T14:00:00+00:00
I am interested in understanding the processes controlling water flow in soils and plants. My hypothesis is that the root-soil interface, where soil and plants meet, is a central region in soil-vegetation process. Although it is a small-scale process, it has significant applications for water use efficiency, agriculture, plant breeding and grass lands. My recent studies showed that the soil near roots, the rhizosphere, has particular properties that favour root water uptake from drying soils. However, the rhizosphere may ultimately turn hydrophobic after being dried. What are the consequences for root water uptake? Is this a strategy of plants to isolate roots from dry soils? Could the rhizosphere hydrophobicity affect soil moisture dynamics at larger scale (evaporation, preferential flow, etc…), as well as vegetation patterns?

His songs were inspired by the folk tradition at the beginning of his career – they still are – but have transformed into gritty social comment and life observations. An evening with the affectionately nicknamed ‘Teesside Troubadour’ is an exciting combination of his talents as a raconteur, humorist, and his unique and powerful delivery of the music he loves. Tonight is an opportunity to experience Vin’s artistry in the intimate surroundings of the Turner Sims foyer.

Hailed by Gramophone magazine as a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music, the Chiaroscuro Quartet return to Turner Sims after leader Alina Ibragimova’s triumphs in the 2015 BBC Proms playing all of Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin in two televised concerts in the Royal Albert Hall. They open tonight with a selection from Bach’s work exploring the developmental possibilities of a single theme. To follow this we hear music by Schubert, including the composer’s masterpiece named after the song from which a set of variations is heard in the second movement.

Barry Douglas (20:00)

2017-03-23T20:00:00+00:002017-03-23T23:00:00+00:00

Schubert - Impromptus, D899 (Op 90)
Brahms
- Variations on a theme of Paganini (Book 1)
- 3 Intermezzi, Op 117
Schubert - Sonata No 20 in A, D959

Barry Douglas’ recital focusses on two composers with whom he has a special affinity, most notably through his acclaimed recent recordings for Chandos. Schubert is represented by the first of his two sets of impromptus and the second of the three sonatas which were composed within the space of a month, just weeks before his death at the age of 31 in 1828. Brahms’ virtuosic set of variations takes as its starting point the most famous of all themes by Paganini, one which has subsequently proved inspiration for composers from Rachmaninov and Lutoslawski to Andrew Lloyd Webber. The 3 Intermezzi are among the best-loved and most popular of Brahms’ late piano output.

Alfredo Rodríguez - piano
Munir Hossn - bass, guitar
Michael Olivera - drums

Grammy nominated artist Alfredo Rodríguez reflects the talents of legendary jazz pianists Keith Jarrett and Thelonious Monk. Schooled in the classical conservatories of Havana, Rodríguez’s artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as it is by his Cuban and jazz roots. Tonight he performs music from Tocororo – his new album on Mack Avenue Records – where his story is represented by the national bird of Cuba. The Tocororo is a bird that if caged dies of sadness, reflecting not only the desire for liberty, but the necessity of it. Beyond that, though, is the story of everything else the bird represents: freedom, travel, and cross-pollination. In Rodríguez’s case, it represents the cross pollination of his Cuban culture with all of the cultures he has experienced throughout his musical journey

Part of són’s Reimagined : Recomposed Series
Max Richter - The Four Seasons Recomposed
Max Richter - On the Nature of Daylight
Barber - Adagio for Strings
Elgar - Sospiri
Vaughan Williams - Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus

Continuing their exploration of newly imagined and interpreted music, són present a powerful and eclectic mix of string orchestra works, including The Four Seasons Recomposed by the increasingly popular post-minimalist British composer Max Richter. Featuring soloist Thomas Gould, Seasons Recomposed premiered at London’s Barbican in 2012, and the subsequent album topped the iTunes classical chart in the UK, US and Germany. Richter’s treatment of Vivaldi’s music is fascinating and engaging: despite discarding 75% of the original material, he ‘recomposes’ with phase-shifts and loops, in keeping with his post-modernist and minimalist roots.

Alongside works by Max Richter, són extend their survey of musical remodelling with Vaughan Williams beautiful Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, as well as exploring the passionate string colours of Barber’s ever-popular Adagio and Elgar’s Sospiri – looking ahead to their next concert Elgar Unwrapped in June.

THE SONGS AND POEMS OF MOLLY DRAKE
 
A wistful mother in the 1950s makes some simple home recordings in her family sitting room. Little could she have known that decades later, her son Nick Drake would become one of the most poetic and influential songwriters ever, or that more than sixty years later, the dust would be blown off her own songs.
 
With active encouragement from the Drake estate, and with the full blessing and enthusiasm of celebrated actress Gabrielle Drake (Molly’s daughter and Nick’s sister), The Unthanks revisit and reappraise Molly’s charming and bittersweet songs – works that are extraordinary enough to rank alongside those of her brilliant son.
 
The Mercury nominated mavericks of British folk music are bound to treat the challenge with the same love and diligence for their subject as they did when reinterpreting the work of Robert Wyatt and Antony & The Johnsons. This tour of her reimagined work will be accompanied by an album release of Molly Drake’s work – Diversions Vol 4. – the latest in a growing line of intrepid projects by The Unthanks.

Benjamin Grosvenor’s programme to close the Piano Series includes works with natural phenomenon as their inspiration. The ever-popular Moonlight sonata was so-named after Beethoven’s death by poet Ludwig Rellstab, who likened the effect of the first movement to that of moonlight shining upon Lake Lucerne. Scriabin wrote of the first part of his sonata that it evokes the calm of a night by the seashore, whilst Liszt’s work takes its inspiration from his visits to Spain and Portugal.
