Swindon Recital Series

  • Paul Turner to play recital at Christ Church – July 14th

With the latest relaxation of restrictions in place Paul Turner, Swindon-born Founder and Artistic Director of Swindon Recital Series, is to give a piano recital at Christ Church on Wednesday July 14th, 1.05 – 2pm. He intends to play gentle, less dramatic pieces to create a relaxing atmosphere. Paul says 'I would like there to be no applause until the end of the concert so that I can take the audience on a journey with pieces related only by mood and key. I'm hoping this approach would be much more interesting for an audience if they don't know what to expect, rather like turning on the radio and simply enjoying whatever comes next. Leave your preconceptions at the door and simply enjoy the music.' Entry will cost £5, cash on the door.

In compliance with a comprehensive risk assessment seating will be distanced at 2 metres and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Hand sanitiser will be available and contact details will be required. Currently face coverings will be required indoors (with the usual medical exemptions) and 2 metres social distancing should be observed when moving around inside or outside of the church.

Paul Turner 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. An experienced recitalist he has appeared at London's leading venues and major UK festivals. He has given concerts in Europe and South America and worked with eminent singers and instrumentalists.

"For his part, Turner offered…intricate piano writing rendered with exemplary clarity and poise" (Richard Whitehouse – St. Johns Smith Square)
