This season sees Paul Turner, the founder and Artistic Director of the Swindon Recital Series, return with a truly inspiring and beautifully impressionistic solo programme, based on the widely varied piano compositions of Claude Debussy. It will feature three of his most popular sets of pieces in ‘Suite Bergamasque’ (which includes ‘Clair de lune’), ‘Children’s Corner’ and ‘Estampes’, as well as ‘Deux Arabesques’, ‘La Cathedral Engloutie’ and the spectacular ‘L’Isle Joyeuse’.
Paul is an honours graduate and an elected Associate of the Royal Academy of Music, where his many prizes and awards culminated in the Queen’s Commendation for Excellence and the Peter Pears Accompaniment Prize. His recent work has included a Wigmore Hall recital and a live broadcast on Radio 3 with cellist Caroline Dale, concerts and a BBC recording with soprano Elizabeth Watts, chamber music festivals on the Rhone and in Blair Atholl, and a Mozart concerto with the English Chamber Orchestra.
