Duo Karadys Carol Hubel-Allen (viola) and Paul Turner (piano).Wednesday 13th November 2019 - Wyvern Theatre 1.05 pm

Carol Hubel-Allen

Carol received her musical training at the Royal Academy of Music where she studied with Sidney Griller, leading to a distinguished career throughout Europe and the USA. Currently a member of the Bochmann String Trio, her programme will feature Arvo Pärt’s haunting ‘Spiegel im Spiegel’, alongside Schubert’s ‘Arpeggione’ sonata and the Bruch Romance. A mesmerising event!

Paul Turner (piano)Wednesday 29th January 2020 - Wyvern Theatre 1.05 pm

The SRS founder makes a much anticipated return to the beauty of Chopin’s piano music, including favourites such as the ‘Raindrop Prelude’, ‘Fantaisie-Impromptu’ and the ‘minute’ waltz. A recent performance was described by Sheila Harrod, Patron of the Old Town Festival, as “Just wonderful and so very uplifting. It calmed my busy day. A very special man who speaks with his hands!” A melodic and contemplative programme.

Owen Horn TrioMiranda Dale (violin), Martin Owen (french horn) and Paul Turner (piano). Sunday 29th March 2020 - Arts Centre 3.00 pm

Martin Owen

Martin Owen is regarded as one of Europe's leading horn players, appearing as soloist and chamber musician all around the world. His playing has been described by the Sunday Times as ‘a luxury for the ear’. Brahms’ gorgeous Horn Trio is at the heart of this programme, and was the inspiration for Ligeti’s ‘Hommage á Brahms’ (for the same combination), which in turn was influenced by the opening theme of Beethoven’s piano sonata in Eb, ‘Les Adieux’.

Joseph Shiner (clarinet) and Paul Turner (piano)Wednesday 6th May 2020 - Wyvern Theatre 1.05 pm

'His rich tone, dynamic variety and dazzling technique had everyone spellbound'

Joseph is a multi-prizewinning clarinettist, featured as BBC Music Magazine's 'Rising Star' in August 2016, and currently a selected artist for the Tillett and Tunnell Trusts. He has already worked with the ROH, BBC Concert Orchestra and LPO, amongst others, after a glittering studentship at Cambridge and the Royal Academy of Music. His programme features Lutoslawski’s exciting Dance Preludes, Saint Saens lyrical sonata and Weber’s Grand Duo – watch out for the fireworks!
