    • Carmen is probably the most popular opera of all times. It is the most performed of all operas, with a universal appeal that transcends cultures and generations. It has been the most filmed opera in history. Written in 1874 and first performed in 1875, the year of Bizet's death, it was harshly criticized and was not a success until after the composer's death. Bizet's masterly use of orchestral color heightens the dramatic pace and gives the whole opera an almost…

    • The Casbah of Tetouan was conceived during a visit to Morocco in the summer of 1988. The composer offers the following anecdote: "As we crossed the Straits of Gibraltar and first laid eyes on the North African coast, I knew we were in store for an adventure! The city of Tetouan was our destination; we were soon standing before its main gates. As we entered the city, our senses were overrun by the many exotic new sights, complementing the wild…

    • Fandango is an impressionistic tone poem, written in November 1995 for the American Horn Quartet. It was the wish of Mr. Turner to express a passionate Spanish dance in the tradition of Maurice Ravel's La Valse and Bolero. At the same time he wanted to show case the particular virtuosity of the American Horn Quartet, who premiered the piece in Kerrville, Texas at a concert on April 14th, 1996. Mr Turner explains the piece as follows: At the opening of…

    • I chose the title "Improvisation" because of the circumstances in which the piece was written. At the time of receiving the commission by the Loraine Brass Quintet, I was doing quite a lot of traveling and didn't always have access to a piano or keyboard. During the month of April 1998, I had several different motives bouncing around in my head. The theme at the very opening (the listesso tempo after letter A) the motive in the treble voices at…
