Academy Of Ancient Music | Mortal Voices (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00
2018-03-01T20:00:00+00:002018-03-01T22:00:00+00:00
Christian Curnyn director, harpsichord
Keri Fuge soprano
Tim Mead countertenor
 
Corelli Concerto Grosso Op 6 No 1 in D
Handel Cantata HWV230 Ah! Che troppo ineguali
Handel Cantata HWV82 Il Duello Amoroso
Pergolesi Stabat Mater
 
In a concert that will pull at the heart strings, baroque specialist Christian Curnyn directs soprano Keri Fuge and countertenor Tim Mead, in some of the most sublime music of the early 18th century.
 
Pergolesi’s beautiful Stabat Mater is his best-known work and one of the finest settings of this sorrowful song to Mary at the Crucifixion. A hidden gem in this concert is Handel’s cantata Ah! che troppo ineguali, an anguished appeal of mortal voices to Mary to extinguish every spark of warlike fury and bring peace – it is paired here with the altogether earthier cantata Il Duello Amoroso. Almost a mini-opera, it tells the story of an ‘amorous duel’ between the shepherd Daliso and the shepherdess Amaryllis, the music perfectly capturing the drama of the story.
 
Pre-concert talk 7pm

Gary Husband | A Meeting Of Spirits (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00

Gary Husband piano, in-piano percussion, vocals, bell
 
Internationally acclaimed pianist, drummer and composer (John McLaughlin & The 4th Dimension, Allan Holdsworth, Jack Bruce) Gary Husband, performing music from his highly emotive and acclaimed new release, compellingly reimagining the music of John McLaughlin, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Shakti.
 
Supreme inventiveness, absolute creativity and unique and deeply moving piano music!! Truly inspiring!! Chick Corea
 
Gary Husband the pianist has long been overshadowed by Gary Husband the drummer. I can personally testify to it. However, here we have a recording which surely will achieve the reverse of what I just wrote. In addition, he has chosen to base this recording primarily on my own compositions. I am honoured. And it’s a recording full of surprises, invention, modulations and inversions of melodic, harmonic and rhythmic content abound. This is Gary Husband in full bloom: Wonderful!!! John McLaughlin
 
I’m not sure that the word interpretations is the right one for these performances – they go so much further – not even close to what the industry calls covers – so individual are they. Michael Gibbs (arranger, Mahavishnu Orchestra Apocalypse)

A THOUSAND MILES ON FOOT THROUGH THE HEART OF THE MIDDLE EAST
 
In December 2015, Northern Irish adventurer, film-maker, writer and speaker Leon McCarron set off from Jerusalem to walk 1000 miles through the heart of the Middle East. The five-month-long journey took him through the rolling green hills and terraced olive groves of the West Bank; the deep chasm-like wadis and ancient kingdoms of Jordan; and the vast, rugged deserts of the Sinai peninsula.
 
Along the way, Leon collected the thoughts and stories of the people that he met, and explored the rich past, tense present and uncertain future of the region. He also looked at how contemporary borders and checkpoints have affected the land and its peoples, and the role of walking as a possible way to make divided lands feel whole again. Working on the premise that the brain works best at 3 miles per hour, this talk explores the various layers of culture, history, faith and politics at work in the bubbling cauldron of one of the most complex and compelling places on earth – the Holy Land.

Nominated for Gramophone’s Artist of the Year award in 2017, Bavouzet’s extensive discography includes a complete and highly praised survey of Debussy’s music for Chandos. The programme includes some of the composer’s defining works for the instrument: 7 of his Etudes, which Debussy described as ‘a warning to pianists not to take up the musical profession unless they have remarkable hands’; and the second book of Preludés with its evocations of landscapes including India, Egypt, England and his homeland, France.

Chris Abrahams piano
Lloyd Swanton bass
Tony Buck drums
 
Forming in Sydney Australia in 1986, over the last 30 years The Necks have built an international reputation as masters of their own musical language of long-form improvisation. Each night they step onto the stage with no pre-conceived ideas of what they will play – they and the audience go on a sonic journey that is created in the moment and in that room.
 
Over their years together, they have honed an assured process of building around repeated motifs through subtle shifts and layering, to produce an extraordinarily dense and hypnotic effect which builds in a mesmerising, epic fashion… a trio conjuring an orchestral expanse.
 
Every Necks performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room.

Come and hear about the future of business thinking as our DBA students take on real world problems and put the evidence back into business thinking.
The DBA is a practical and applied way of evidencing and validating how research can be used to solve real world problems that you experience in your businesses every day. DBA research addresses real world problems and is motivated by the challenges they pose.
Within our own business contexts, when we have been doing the same job for any length of time, we can easily become trapped in a particular way of thinking. This event gives every business an opportunity to talk to people with deep industry experience who are exploring these ‘thinking traps’.
Get involved and come along to our informal and FREE event where you can explore and possibly receive help in solving some of your own business problems. It’s a great place for you to network, learn and share ideas with other creative thinkers.

Rowan Rheingans vocals, fiddle, banjo, bansitar
 
With their unique approach to singing, and intelligent and thoughtful arrangements of both traditional repertoire and original compositions, Lady Maisery are skillful explorers of the power, beauty and vitality of song. Underpinning every performance are their distinctive harmonies: sometimes lush and rich, sometimes dark and invigorating, they intertwine with assured precision. The trio are also one of the foremost English proponents of mouth music, or ‘diddling’ – once common in England, and still found across parts of southern and northern Europe, this form of singing without words is a perfect showcase for their sheer musicality.

Epistemic Vice and Forms of Scepticism Conference (09:45)

09:45 - 18:00
2018-04-13T09:45:00+01:002018-04-13T18:00:00+01:00
Organised by: Philosophy
The aim of the one-day conference is to examine the connexion between the intellectual vices and various forms of doubt and scepticism. Although virtue epistemology is currently a booming topic, and the intellectual virtues (and vices) have received considerable attention, the connexion between intellectual vice and scepticism is a totally under-explored topic, both within epistemology itself as well as in wider cultural debates. This seems a particularly glaring omission in light of the fact that a form of ‘knowledge scepticism’ appears to dominate much of contemporary life as witnessed recently in the Brexit and climate-change debates, or the rise to prominence of such dubious notions as ‘post-truth’ and ‘fake news’.

Keyon Harrold trumpet, vocals

Burniss Travis bass
Charles Haynes drums
Nir Felder guitar
 
Raised from the fires of (now infamous) Ferguson, Missouri, Grammy Award-winning Keyon Harrold has developed a reputation as one of the world’s most sought-after, emotionally electric young trumpeters on the scene. Keyon has toured and recorded with or produced for the likes of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Common, Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill to name a few. He also has had numerous musical placements in film and TV including the 2015 Miles Davis biopic, Miles Ahead. Directed by Don Cheadle, Keyon is featured as the trumpet sound of Don Cheadle playing Miles Davis.
 
Tonight he plays music from his 2017 album, The Mugician. As the word ‘Mugician’ is an impromptu hybrid of words, this album is an accumulation of Keyon’s eclectic tastes, with stylistic twists and turns everywhere taking cues from jazz, hip-hop, blues, rock, reggae, and rap.

Stefan Mendl piano

Beethoven Variations in E flat, Op 44
Schumann Piano Trio No 3 in G minor, Op 110
Tchaikovsky Piano Trio in A minor, Op 50

Tchaikovsky’s sole contribution to the piano trio medium was born out of adversity. The death of the composer’s close friend and mentor Nikolai Rubinstein inspired him to produce this work with its subtitle In memory of a great artist. The work’s second movement is characterised by a set of variations, and the concert begins with Beethoven’s set, the starting point for which was a song from one of the popular operas at the time. Schumann’s third trio, a relative rarity in concert programmes compared to his first two, was described by his wife Clara as ‘…original and increasingly passionate, especially the scherzo, which carries one along with it into the wildest depths’.

Mamadou Sarr percussion
Andi Mclean bass
Westley Joseph drums
Derek Johnson guitar
 
Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora virtuoso, a modern-day woman in an ancient, male-dominated, hereditary tradition that has been exclusively handed down from father to son for the past seven centuries. She has modernised the presentation of kora music, playing whilst standing and singing to her rhythmic arrangements with electric instruments in a modern band.
 
Effortlessly blending different musical styles, not just between the West and Africa, but also between West African musical genres, Sona uses her innovative stance to talk about cultural identity, gender, love and respect, whilst still referencing and rooting herself firmly in her cultural heritage. She represents her tradition in a way that is easily accessible to her audiences from around the world, who are drawn in by her captivating voice, strong rhythms and catchy melodies.

Mark Guiliana has become recognised as one of the world’s leading drummers, admired and in demand across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music for his rhythmic sophistication, creative impulse, and individual sound. He has been in the vanguard of drummers creating a new vernacular on the instrument, blending virtuosity on acoustic drums with artfully deployed electronic beats and processing.
 
Along with leading his own groups, Mark has appeared on a string of acclaimed recordings with others. The verve and precision of Guiliana’s drumming was a prime mover of Blackstar, David Bowie’s multiple Grammy Award-winning final album, and he has collaborated with artists such as Brad Mehldau, John Scofield, Donny McCaslin and Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer-songwriter Matt Cameron.
 
Tonight he brings music from his most recent release Jersey, with his ever-compelling quartet.

Bill Frisell guitar
Thomas Morgan double bass
 
Multiple Grammy Award-winner Bill Frisell has established himself as one of the most admired and influential musicians across contemporary music. With his unmistakable trademark sound, his collaborations with a staggering range of artists from jazz, rock, film, and beyond – including Paul Motian, Elvis Costello, Paul Simon, Charles Lloyd, Bonnie Raitt, and John Scofield – have produced dazzling results, as evidenced by Small Town (ECM), his acclaimed recent release recorded live at New York’s famed Village Vanguard with rising bass phenomenon Thomas Morgan.
 
Tonight the duo bring their magical musical chemistry to the Turner Sims stage.
 
Morgan’s quick anticipations of Frisell’s moves give their conversations a startling buoyancy; the weave of bell-like harmonics, quiet electronics and folk-blues figures is mesmerising… The Guardian

2018-05-08T20:00:00+01:002018-05-08T22:00:00+01:00
For centuries mules were used to transport goods across Britain. Strong, sturdy and able to carry a great deal of weight, they made ideal walking companions – as long as you didn’t ask them to do anything they didn’t want to do!
 
Wainwright Prize-winner Hugh Thomson revived that ancient tradition, using his experience of hiking with pack mules across the Andes to have what he called ‘a South American adventure in England’. Taking his cue from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Travels With A Donkey – the bestselling travel book of the 19th century – Hugh took his mule, Jethro, across England from the Yorkshire Moors to the Lake District, using the old drovers roads and mule tracks that have largely passed into disrepair. These wild parts of the North of England used mules extensively in the past, and by recreating that experience, Hugh gained an insight into the forgotten men who were the muleteers for the mines and cattle that were scattered across the hills of Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Their programme includes Bach’s fifth solo suite alongside Ligeti’s work, of which the composer said ‘I attempted in this piece to write a beautiful melody, with a typical Hungarian profile, but not a folk song …’.

Beethoven Piano Trio in C minor, Op 1 No 3
Frank Zabel 2nd Piano Trio inner voices, traces (2017) (World Premiere)
Schumann Piano Quartet in E flat, Op 47
 
A special occasion, to mark the conclusion of the Vienna Piano Trio’s three years as Associate Artists, has as its centrepiece the world premiere of a new commission for the group by Austrian composer Frank Zabel. The concert ends with one of the works which Schumann composed in his so-called Year of Chamber Music, 1842. Written with his wife in mind – Clara was one of the performers to premiere it two years later – she described it as ‘a beautiful work, so youthful and fresh….’
 
To open we hear the trio which Haydn initially praised but then advised Beethoven to hold off publishing because it would be hard to understand and be badly received; Beethoven, who thought the third trio the best of the set, didn’t want to hear Haydn’s reasons, and ascribed his advice to jealousy or ill will.

Jordan Smart saxophones
 
Captivating, ethereal and majestic, Mammal Hands has carved out a refreshingly original sound from a disparate array of influences: drawing on spiritual jazz, north Indian, folk and classical music to create something inimitably their own. All three members contribute equally to the writing process: one that favours the creation of a powerful group dynamic over individual solos.
 
Tonight they perform music from their new release, Shadow Work; their third album and the first they have self-produced. The energy from their exhilarating live performances has fed into the writing process and yet there is a quiet reflective side to this album, giving it an expanded  emotional range that draws the listener deep into Mammal Hand’s sound world. Their records are entrancing and beautiful affairs, while their hypnotic live shows have seen them hailed as one of the most exciting bands in Europe.
