“Just wonderful and so very uplifting. It calmed my busy day. A very special man who speaks with his hands!” (Sheila Harrod, Patron of the Old Town Festival)

Pianist Paul Turner is a widely experienced soloist and chamber music player renowned for his sensitive playing “...superbly partnered by Paul Turner’s sensitive and alert accompaniments...that sixth sense of timing which is the true accompanist’s particular gift” (Eastern Daily Press). He excels in a wide range of genres as demonstrated in recent events, which include: performances of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Concerto in F; his National Theatre debut with Maria Ewing in a celebration for the life of Sir Peter Hall; the Ralph Vaughan Williams festival with Jack Liebeck and members of the Sacconi Quartet; Kings College Cambridge with Nicholas Daniel during Easter week; Ligeti ‘Hommage a Brahms’ with Martin Owen; recording with Miranda Dale for the Proust Society and a new collaboration with BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist, saxophonist Robert Burton. “For his part, Turner offered…intricate piano writing rendered with exemplary clarity and poise” (Richard Whitehouse). “Turner...impressed with a spectacular performance, demonstrating his astonishing abilities as an accompanist” (Surrey Advertiser) “A wise and sensitive pianist” (Gower Festival). “Thank you Paul for a truly wonderful concert! Your playing was amazing and beautiful, and it was a joy to be so close to it! I do hope we'll see you again soon!”(Lucy Hollins, conductor)
