Nearly half a century after their first publication, Robert E. Turner's brilliant writings on music have finally been collected into one volume to be enjoyed anew. Throughout his remarkable career in music, he was primarily known as a pianist and piano teacher. Yet, for seventeen years, Turner's Program Notes and Concert Comments were fixtures of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra programs. These essays were written for concerts by the greatest performing artists of his day -- Heifetz, Rubinstein, Mehta, Cliburn, Stern, Casals, Boulez, and many more. The concerts were presented at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Auditorium, the Shrine Auditorium, the Hollywood Bowl and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center. Robert E. Turner wrote essays about more than one thousand pieces of music, and scores more about a variety of musical topics. Bowl Notes encapsulates that legacy, something not to be found on the internet, written by a musical eminence who was for so many years the pride of Los Angeles' musical community.

Robert E. Turner (1914 - 2001) was one of America's finest pianists and teachers. He performed to critical acclaim throughout the United States and in Europe. Over a period of fifty years, he became one of the most important piano teachers in the western United States. Born in San Francisco, Turner was awarded a fellowship for study at the Juilliard Graduate School when he was only fourteen years old. His years of study in New York with the Lhevinnes proved to be his strongest musical influence. Beginning in 1950, Turner was program annotator for the Hollywood Bowl. A few years later, he assumed the same position with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, continuing in both assignments until 1967. In 1969, Turner founded the Repertoire Chamber Orchestra in Los Angeles to give performance opportunities to gifted young soloists. Turner served as the Orchestra's music director and conductor for twelve years. While most of his teaching and coaching activities took place in a private setting at his Santa Monica home, he fulfilled institutional teaching assignments at the University of Washington, UCLA, the University of Southern California, and the University of California at San Diego.
