“Magical Fingers” Metro

“Scrupulous attention to the harp's rhythmic and dynamic possibilities” The Times

"Agile and assured performance from Eleanor, who shines throughout the recording" The Gramophone

Eleanor Turner is a versatile electro acoustic harpist who performs internationally as soloist, with her band Ranagrí and in collaboration with world-class artists such as Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead bassist and composer) and Mendi Singh, tabla maestro, in her Tāla Tarang duo. Her concerto debut at age 15 was in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, broadcast live on Classic FM.

Eleanor is at her most creative and daring in cross-discipline collaborations, whether with hip hop dancer Lizzie Gough or in the field of electronic gesture-controlled music created in collaboration with Balandino Di Donato (who performed her British Sign Language piece The Wood and The Water for harp and sound spatialisation). She won First Prize in the European Harp Competition, a Wingate Scholarship and awards from the Tillett Trust, Help Musicians and the PRS Foundation for New Music. She has performed solo recitals and with chamber ensembles at the Wigmore Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw and concertos in London, Bristol, Sydney and New Orleans.

Throughout lockdown, Eleanor has focused on composing and producing, recently completing a commission for ‘A Sound A Place’ by Tubipora duo in Turin. She has also recorded her own solo pieces at home and with Voces8 and Cassell the Beatmaker, duetted via video with UK singer Ruti and Italian harpist Adriano Sangineto, and has created a new musical work ‘And that’s why we are here today’ in collaboration with bassist Wayne Bennett, for Sound and Music’s ‘Interpreting Isolation’ award.
