Music from the Festival on the Niger 2008

Episode 2

Lucy Duran presents highlights from the Festival on the Niger 2008.

The Festival is literally on the Niger, as the performers play from a barge that floats on this great African river. It was started three years ago to promote culture and tourism in that region, to try and tempt travellers on their way to Timbuktu to stop in Segou for a while. The artist line-up is a mix of internationally known Malian artists such as Afel Bocoum from Niafunke, and artists who are popular in Mali but less well known outside.

Afel Bocoum was a musician in the band of the great Ali Farka Toure, and many see him as continuing Ali's tradition. He performs a song especially for the programme, and talks about life in rural Niafunke. Neba Solo is a virtuoso balafon player, who has formed a band which works up a storm with three balafons plus percussion,. Mangala Camara made his name as a lead singer with artists such as Toumani Diabate, and has now started a solo career which has already had a hit: his song 'Minye Minye', which was intended as a critique of politics, was adopted by Mali's President as his campaign song.

SAT 16:00 Jazz Line-Up (b00d3kbk)
Claire Martin presents a special all-CD edition of the programme, with a discussion with saxophonist Tony Kofi about his new 2008 album The Silent Truth. A graduate of the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, Tony has studied with musical figures such as Andy Magee, Ernie Watts and Billy Pierce and was also a member of the noted UK jazz group The Jazz Warriors.

Prom 49 - Part 1

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Penny Gore.

The young star players of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain are conducted by the youngest man ever to be appointed musical director of the Royal Opera Antonio Pappano. The programme has an American theme and is launched by Frenchman Edgard Varese's hymn to the New World where he went to live. This is followed by the last numbered piano concerto - composed mainly in New York - by Rachmaninov, a more reluctant US resident, who was self-exiled from Soviet Russia.

Rock's DNA - Portrait of a Guitar Chord

Embedded in the riffs to Purple Haze and Foxy Lady there's a guitar chord that's saturated in the blues, that's jazz-inflected and inclined to funk but, above all, speaks of rock. The Jimi Chord, a conflicted major-minor chord with a flattened seventh, unlocks the window into the soul of rock music and much more besides.

With contributions from famous axemen such as Steve Howe (Yes), Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake), and John Campbell (Are You Experienced?).

Prom 50: Bach Day - Simon Preston

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Suzy Klein.

Renowned Bach interpreter Simon Preston is at the Royal Albert Hall's great organ for a cross-section of repertoire by the instrument's most eminent composer. With a mixture of the famous and the less well-known - ranging from the celebrated Toccata and Fugue to one of a set of small but intricate duets which the composer wrote towards the end of his life. Bach the inventive contrapuntist is represented by the Canonic Variations, while Bach the pious Lutheran by two of his chorale preludes and finally Bach as a master of high-flown musical rhetoric is heard in the St Anne Prelude and Fugue.

Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565

Prom 52: Bach Day - Jian Wang

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Christopher Cook.

Chinese cellist Jian Wang takes centre stage for the first three of Bach;s six solo cello suites. Works of considerable technical accomplishment as well as intellectual and spiritual nourishment, Jian Wang comments that 'Bach's music has a lot of qualities that appeal to the Chinese philosophy of life: to be humble, to wish but not desire, to love but not own.'

Jian Wang (cello)

Bach: Suites for solo cello: No 1 in G; No 2 in D minor; No 3 in C.

SUN 23:15 Words and Music (b00d3ktg)
The Ring Cycle

Most of us have opinions about marriage. Gandhi claimed that he first learned the concepts of non-violence from his and Katharine Hepburn maintained that marriage was the way to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of just one.

You don’t have to have been a wife or a husband of course. We’ve all been children and we’ve seen our parents or other adults experimenting day to day with the notion that two individual squares can and should be turned into a single, smooth, gilded circle of domestic bliss.

This edition of Words and Music traces that impulse from the spark of desire to its flaring in the conjugal hearth; from its collapse into ash and embers to its occasional, miraculous re-kindling.

So forget Das Rheingold and think instead about the double dream of matrimony. You’ll be in good company, the actors Jane Lapotaire and Ralf Little will be lending their voices to Tolstoy, Saul Bellow, Elizabeth Bishop and Anne Carson amongst others to conjure up this vision and the music will be provided by the Words and Music jukebox – a machine that can produce Mozart’s sounds and sweet airs, the slinkiness of Billie Holiday, Anouar Brahem’s feline oud playing and the cybernetic funk of Grace Jones. What else would you expect from an attempt to describe “the triumph of hope over experience”?

Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

The Stage Works: Who Wants the English Composer?

Despite his fascination with music for the stage from childhood onwards, Vaughan Williams's operas remain a neglected area of his work. His first opera, Hugh the Drover, was influenced by his folksong collecting of the early 1900s, and the concerns expressed in his 1912 essay 'Who wants the English Composer?'.

BBC Proms 2008:

A Prom featuring Vaughan Williams's Flos Campi with a solo viola accompanied by orchestra and wordless chorus, prefaced by highly charged words from the Song of Solomon. It is a score that may have been a concealed declaration of love for Ursula Wood, who was to become the composer's second wife.

Well known for his advocacy of British music, Richard Hickox also directs Nigel Osborne's Flute Concerto in celebration of the composer's sixtieth birthday and with a Radio 3 New Generation Artist as soloist. Completing the programme are a Mozart Symphony and Beethoven's Mass in C. Introduced by Louise Fryer.

Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

The Stage Works: Shakespearean Portraits

The experience of working with the RSC on the music for a number of plays in 1913 sowed the seeds for Vaughan Williams's Falstaffian opera Sir John in Love. This, like most of his operas, was first produced by amateurs, as opportunities for an English composer to get an opera performed were almost non-existent in the early 20th century. With Donald Macleod.

Manchester: Masters and Men

Chris Bowlby visits the Victorian cotton capital to discover how its buildings evoke the confident period when Manchester liberalism became the dominant ideology.

As the middle classes prospered, free trade and dissent achieved architectural, as well as social and political, status. Local luminaries, such as Halle, Mrs Gaskell and Engels, also decisively shaped the way later generations have thought about capitalism and how we consume culture today.

WED 22:00 BBC Proms (b00d5b57)

Prom 56: Rautavaara and Tavener

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

A concert given as part of the BBC Proms 2008 featuring Einojuhani Rautavaara's most popular work - a soundscape for taped birdsong and orchestra, set against John Tavener's early cantata The Whale, the work that the London Sinfonietta premiered at its first concert 40 years ago. The programme concludes with the UK premiere of Tavener's Cantus mysticus, which uses texts by Goethe Dante and Buddhist scripture to explore the creative feminine element in the divine.

Donald Macleod continues his survey of the stage works of Vaughan Williams, with an astonishingly bleak and intense one-act opera based on a play by J.M Synge, and a less successful "romantic extravaganza".

In series about how different cities have shaped our world, Felipe Fernández-Armesto probes the relationship between leading economists and political thinkers at the University of Chicago in the 1950s, including Milton Friedman and Leo Strauss, and the city itself.

George Steiner and Richard Sennett recall the Chicago of the time, and we learn how the celebration of individualism by some Chicago intellectuals contrasts starkly with other aspects of life in the Windy City.

Double Header: Tyft/Rudresh Mahanthappa Quartet

Jez Nelson raids the archives to present the finest concerts of the past year, including sets from international jazz-metal power trio Tyft and New Yorker Rudresh Mahanthappa's quartet, both given at The Wardrobe in Leeds.

Led by Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson, Tyft also features New York reeds player Andrew D'Angelo and drummer Jim Black. The performance includes material from the band's critically praised album Meg Nem Sa as well as earlier material composed by Jensson.

The Rudresh Mahanthappa Quartet is the American saxophonist's flagship ensemble, made up of Vijay Iyer on piano, Francois Moutin on bass, and Dan Weiss on drums. Recorded last October, the gig includes music that draws heavily on elements of both Mahanthappa and Iyer's Indian ancestry.
