Tim Whitehead spent more than a year on a Leverhulme Scholarship studying JMW Turner. We previewed the resulting gig in detail last October – HERE .
Part of that gig at Tate Britain (with Liam Noble, Pat Bettison and Milo Fell) was recorded. There were further sessions this July, and this CD is the result.

Tim Whitehead is an artist responding with sincerity and depth to Turner’s work. His work will last longer than…………. this this lurid cheapening of Turner’s art, also released today, .
JMW never had much to do with public subsidy. He only ever received public money for his art once.
