9.30am Building a Library: Ben Walton on Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle

Ben Walton surveys the available recordings of Rossini's Petite messe solennelle.

The great opera composer Rossini died 150 years ago this week. According to popular legend he more or less stopped composing after completing his operatic masterpiece William Tell and spent his final years in a sybaritic and depressed retirement. However he did compose two glorious works of religious music during this final period: the Stabat mater and the Petite messe solennelle. The Mass is famously neither little nor solemn. It is a large-scale work with a stream of lyrical arias and energetic choruses. Originally scored for 12 voices, 2 pianos and a harmonium; it is also sometimes performed in a fully orchestrated version. Rossini said of his final masterwork, "Dear Lord, here it is finished, this poor little mass. Have I just written sacred music, or rather, sacrilegious music? I was born for opera buffa, as you well know. Not much technique, a little bit of heart, that’s all. Blessings to you and grant me Paradise."

Nicholas also talks about what makes a successful piece for piano left-hand and shows us just what he means with music by Korngold and Rachmaninov.

At 2 o’clock Nicholas presents his Must Listen piece - a choral work that he sang when he was in music college and that immersed him in 360 degrees of beautiful and uplifting harmonies.

A series in which each week a musician explores a selection of music - from the inside.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b04p51zp)
John Harvey

Crime writer John Harvey has no shortage of fans. His prize-winning books have sold over a million copies and have been translated and published all over the world. His Nottingham detective Charlie Resnick is now so well known – after 12 novels, two television adaptations and four radio plays – that he seems like a real person: a brooding solitary sensitive man who has a passion for ... listening to jazz. And this is where the fans come in. Because for years now they have been sending Harvey compilation tapes of the kind of jazz tracks that they think Resnick would enjoy. So no surprise to discover that his creator John Harvey has a lifelong love of jazz, conceived during a misspent youth in London jazz clubs.

As part of the jazz season across Radio 2 and 3, with highlights from the London Jazz Festival, John Harvey chooses his favourite jazz tracks. The playlist includes early Billie Holliday, Thelonius Monk, James P. Johnson and Chet Baker. Harvey, who’s a fine poet as well as a crime writer, reads a moving poem about Chet Baker’s mysterious death. Other music choices include Shostakovich, Mendelssohn’s ‘Hebrides Overture’, and a Tango for corrugated iron by Jocelyn Pook.

Harvey reveals that he dislikes how crime fiction has changed during the 25 years he’s been writing it: ‘There almost seems to be a competition who can have the most disgusting things in their books, and what awful things you can do particularly to female victims.’ And he talks about his decision to retire his detective Resnick, leaving him sitting on a park bench, ‘hankering after a fresh helping of Thelonius Monk`.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m00016sp)
Rossini - Master Chef and Maestro

To mark the 150th anniversary of Rossini's death, Tom Service salutes the opera composer who was a celebrity in his own time, whose music was whistled in the street. A colourful, jovial character, Rossini was also a renowned gourmand (Bolognese-spattered manuscripts are evidence that he composed while he ate) whose love of food permeated his whole creative outlook. His innovative whipping up of musical excitement earned him the nickname "Signor Crescendo", and he had a healthy attitude to the ephemeral nature of his art: as today's guest, baritone Simon Butteriss, points out, Rossini famously re-composed a page of manuscript that he had dropped while composing in bed, rather than disturb his breakfast tray getting out of bed to pick it up. Rossini understood that music is an essential ingredient of everyday existence - and we all need him in our lives.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m00016sr)
Beginnings and Endings

One of the most fundamental questions we can ask is ‘where do I come from?’ And poets, philosophers, religions and scientists down the ages and across cultures have fashioned theories and stories to try and answer that question. We can hear their work in Norse mythology, Cherokee creation beliefs and Darwin’s theory of evolution. But what came before the beginning? One theory was chaos and Rebel offers us glimpses of that in musical form. There are also creative beginnings - a 14-year-old Aretha Franklin recorded in her father’s church and Prince rehearsing a new song (Purple Rain) alone at night in his studio. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein stands as a warning of the risks of scientific experimentation while the orphan Pip, from Dickens’ Great Expectations, is forced to create his own origin story from the tiniest of clues. Birth is the theme of Gerald Finzi’s cantata, Dies Natalis, which sets to music the poetry of Thomas Traherne - about being unborn, emerging into the world and what it is to be human.

This edition of Words and Music complements a week of Free Thinking programmes to tie in with the Being Human Festival – which showcases humanities research around the UK. This year the festival takes Origins and Endings as its theme.

Endings come in the shape of Haydn’s false endings, Caryl Churchill’s apocalyptic visions and the final words from Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable “I can’t go on, I’ll go on.” There are lost loves and lost countries - Amineh Abou Kerech – a 15-year-old Syrian migrant – writes a poetic lament for her homeland accompanied by 19-year-old Palestinian composer Nay Barghothi.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m00016st)
The Kristapurana

A full 50 years before John Milton wrote Paradise Lost, an Englishman called Thomas Stephens composed an epic based on the story of the Bible, and he wrote it in Goa, India - that lush, monsoon soaked region so beloved of hippies and holidaymakers.

And he wrote it, not in English, or any European language, but in a regional Indian language, Marathi. 11,000 verses in a classical Indian verse form, rich with images of India - jasmine and coconuts, palm trees and gurus.

'The Kristapurana' is the great, forgotten jewel of Anglo-Indian contact, and the story of its making is as complex as the man who wrote it. Once read and recited in every Christian household in Goa, now barely a memory… why has it disappeared?

And who was this man, this Thomas Stephens? How did he find himself on the other side of the world?

Professor Nandini Das, scholar of early travels and voyages of exploration, is fascinated by Thomas Stephens, and 'The Kristapurana'. She brings the epic poem, and it's writer to life, tracking the scattered traces of his life, from the Tower of London to a remote parish church in south Goa, in an evocative monsoon soaked adventure, reaching back almost 500 years.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00016tb)
Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967)
Something to Live For

Donald Macleod looks at the life and work of American jazz musician Billy Strayhorn, beginning with his early days growing up in difficult circumstances in Homewood, Pittsburgh.

"The biggest human being who ever lived, a man with the most majestic artistic stature", so began Duke Ellington's eulogy on Billy Strayhorn.
A life cut short at just 51, Strayhorn's funeral on 5th June 1967 drew a line on a musical relationship that had continued for almost thirty years. During that time Duke Ellington had never produced a formal contract for Strayhorn's services, yet virtually every performance and every recording session done by the Duke and his Orchestra included original compositions and arrangements done by Strayhorn. The band's sig tune, Take the A Train is one of a number of works which were originally registered as being Duke Ellington's. While not an unheard of practice, this neither reflected Strayhorn's importance within the Ellington enterprise, nor could it be regarded as advantageous to his reputation as a composer. It's possible a significant factor from Strayhorn's perspective wasn't musical. Remaining out of the limelight enabled him to lead an openly homosexual life in an age of strong prejudice.

Taking five key environments that shaped Strayhorn's personal and musical trajectory, across the week Donald Macleod builds a picture of the contributory factors supporting Strayhorn's development as a composer and his extraordinary association with Ellington.

Born in 1915, Strayhorn's early life was over-shadowed by poverty and a violent father. Set on a career in classical music, it took him 6 years of toil as a “soda jerk and delivery boy” at a local drugstore to get the money together to study at music college. Then, an Art Tatum record showed him that everything he loved about classical music was there in one form or another in jazz.

In this concert, recorded last Friday afternoon at Bath's ornate Guildhall, these prodigiously talented young musicians explore three works for piano quartet.

Donald Macleod follows American jazz musician’s exploits after he cuts free and heads to New York to work for Duke Ellington.

A life cut short at just 51, Strayhorn's funeral on 5th June 1967 drew a line on a musical relationship that had continued for almost thirty years.

Taking five key environments, across the week Donald Macleod builds a picture of the contributory factors supporting Strayhorn's development as a composer and his extraordinary association with Ellington.

According to a close friend, it was only a matter of time before Billy Strayhorn’s talent was recognised. That moment happened when his path crossed with Duke Ellington. Strayhorn was quick to discover an exciting new world of opportunity in the big Apple.

BBC Philharmonic
Moritz Gnann

A programme which includes music to commemorate soldiers killed in the First World War opens with music by a young German shot while serving on the Eastern Front in 1915; before the war Rudi Stephan had been considered one of the leading talents of his generation. Music of commemoration opens the second half of the concert too; Herbert Howells wrote his Elegy in memory of a fellow student at the Royal College of Music, killed in service in 1917. Lawrence Power joins the orchestra for Walton's Viola Concerto with its haunting opening theme, written just over a decade later. The programme ends with Shostakovich's Ninth Symphony. Writing for performance in 1945 Shostakovich had been expected to produce a celebratory work. The Symphony that was premiered however is almost neo-classical, light and playful. Perhaps the dichotomy Shostakovich felt between the expectation on him to produce something celebratory piece, honouring Stalin, and his own inclination to reflect the pain and suffering that had been experienced during the Second World War and which continued to be part of life for millions of people across the globe forced him to move in a more abstract direction. In the event the work caused both anger from Stalin and criticism from the West.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000173m)
Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967)
Hollywood beckons

Donald Macleod explores the reasons why the American jazz musician Billy Strayhorn's time in Hollywood turned out to be an opportunity and a source of disillusionment.

"The biggest human being who ever lived, a man with the most majestic artistic stature", so began Duke Ellington's eulogy on Billy Strayhorn.
A life cut short at just 51, Strayhorn's funeral on 5th June 1967 drew a line on a musical relationship that had continued for almost thirty years. During that time Duke Ellington had never produced a formal contract for Strayhorn's services, yet virtually every performance and every recording session done by the Duke and his Orchestra included original compositions and arrangements done by Strayhorn. The band's sig tune, Take the A Train is one of a number of works which were originally registered as being Duke Ellington's. While not an unheard of practice, this neither reflected Strayhorn's importance within the Ellington enterprise, nor could it be regarded as advantageous to his reputation as a composer. It's possible a significant factor from Strayhorn's perspective wasn't musical. Remaining out of the limelight enabled him to lead an openly homosexual life in an age of strong prejudice.
Taking five key environments, across the week Donald Macleod builds a picture of the contributory factors supporting Strayhorn's development as a composer and his extraordinary association with Ellington.

Stuck in Hollywood for months, working on various projects for Duke Ellington enabled the Duke to tour with his Orchestra secure in the knowledge that Strayhorn would make sure everything ran to plan in his absence. There were artistic downsides to this arrangement, but on the plus side, Strayhorn met one of his closest friends, Lena Horne.

Creation myths and music from folklore

Gather round, settle down. Verity Sharp wants to tell you a story through the songs she has selected tonight. In fact, there are several stories to tell.

Norwegian-French-Greek Folk String Quartet Tokso perform a work by Anne Hytta, which was inspired by the Norse 1000 year old creation myth Völuspá.

Colombian producer and sound artist Lucrecia Dalt makes music out of the folkloric forest figure of El Boraro, who inflates his victims like a balloon.

Composer Derek Charke and The Kronos Quartet collaborate with Tanya Tagaq and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory to tell the tale of Sassuma Arnaa, the Inuit goddess who created all living beings.

Vocalist Hanna Tuulikki engages in sound mimesis to create a heavily symbolic work drawing on birdsong and ancient Gaelic tradition.

Finally, Ursula K. Le Guin and Todd Barton weave an anthropological narrative of folklore and fantasy, imagining the ancient-futuristic traditional music of an invented Pacific Coast people called The Kesh.

Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967)
The Mars Club

Donald Macleod looks into American jazz musician Billy Strayhorn's deep connection with Paris, the city where he found the night-life and the artistic independence he craved.

"The biggest human being who ever lived, a man with the most majestic artistic stature", so began Duke Ellington's eulogy on Billy Strayhorn.
A life cut short at just 51, Strayhorn's funeral on 5th June 1967 drew a line on a musical relationship that had continued for almost thirty years.

Taking five key environments, across the week Donald Macleod builds a picture of the contributory factors supporting Strayhorn's development as a composer and his extraordinary association with Ellington.

The cracks were beginning to show in his dealings with Duke Ellington. A life-long Francophile, whenever he felt oppressed, Billy Strayhorn headed to Paris, a city he adored. He loved shopping, he loved the night-clubs, and he had a big circle of friends. It's also where he was given the chance to record his first album under his own name.

Beethoven: Symphony No 5 in C minor

Robert Plane (clarinet)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Ryan Bancroft (conductor)

Continuing the Beethoven cycle with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Ryan Bancroft presents the composer's fledgling first symphony and his iconic fifth, unmistakable from the outset. Between these two extraordinary works is a gem of the woodwind repertoire, Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No 1, written three years after Beethoven's fifth symphony, and also considered innovative for its time. The soloist is BBC NOW’s own Principal Clarinettist, Robert Plane.

Please Note: We’re very sorry to announce that Xian Zhang is unable to conduct these concerts as planned as she is unwell. We are extremely grateful to Ryan Bancroft for stepping in at short notice.

Okkyung Lee's Mixtape

Cellist, improviser and composer Okkyung Lee is the latest compiler of the Late Junction mixtape. She has thirty minutes to select the music that has been most meaningful in her life, including John Zorn, Jimmy Giuffre, Glenn Gould, Ella Fitzgerald, and Rick Astley.

Born in South Korea and based in New York, Okkyung Lee has created an extensive body of work blurring genre boundaries, while testing the limit of contemporary cello performance techniques. Her music draws from noise and extended techniques, jazz, Western classical, and Korean traditional and popular music. A prolific collaborator, she has worked with Laurie Anderson, David Behrman, Chris Corsano, Mark Fell, Vijay Iyer, Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, Bill Orcutt, Marina Rosenfeld, Evan Parker, Wadada Leo Smith, Swans, and Cecil Taylor, to name just a few.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00018b6)
Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967)
Riverside Drive

Donald Macleod charts American jazz musician Billy Strayhorn's difficult final years in Riverside Drive, New York.

"The biggest human being who ever lived, a man with the most majestic artistic stature", so began Duke Ellington's eulogy on Billy Strayhorn.
A life cut short at just 51, Strayhorn's funeral on 5th June 1967 drew a line on a musical relationship that had continued for almost thirty years. During that time Duke Ellington had never produced a formal contract for Strayhorn's services, yet virtually every performance and every recording session done by the Duke and his Orchestra included original compositions and arrangements done by Strayhorn. The band's sig tune, Take the A Train is one of a number of works which were originally registered as being Duke Ellington's. While not an unheard of practice, this neither reflected Strayhorn's importance within the Ellington enterprise, nor could it be regarded as advantageous to his reputation as a composer. It's possible a significant factor from Strayhorn's perspective wasn't musical. Remaining out of the limelight enabled him to lead an openly homosexual life in an age of strong prejudice.
Taking five key environments, across the week Donald Macleod builds a picture of the contributory factors supporting Strayhorn's development as a composer and his extraordinary association with Ellington.

Having lived in the shadow of Duke Ellington for a quarter of a century, when Billy Strayhorn received an invitation to give the first solo concert of his life, he suffered serious anxiety over whether or not anyone would come to hear him play. His decision was to be a significant cross-roads in both his professional and personal life.
