SAT 09:00 Record Review (m00046c8)
Record Store Day: Andrew McGregor, Katy Hamilton and Chris O'Reilly

with Andrew McGregor.

09.30
Building a Library: Katy Hamilton listens to and compares recordings of Brahms' Cello Sonata No.1 in E minor, Op.38.

Brahms composed his first cello sonata between 1862 and 1865, and it was to mark a turning point in his compositional style, away from the exuberant youthfulness of his previous sonata works and towards a more mature character with echoes of the great Austro-German lineage that lay before him. In it Brahms pays homage to Bach, most notably in the fugal finale, which emerges from a theme that echoes the mirror fugues of Contrapunctus numbers 16 and 17 of the Art of Fugue. The first movement is a classic sonata form while the second movement, an Allegretto and Trio, is reminiscent of Mozart. The cello sonata was premiered in Leipzig on 14th January 1871.

10.50
Andrew McGregor marks Record Store Day and is joined in the studio by CEO of Presto Classical, Chris O'Reilly, who brings his pick of the latest releases to hit the shelves of record stores. Andrew McGregor also discusses the story from the High Street with Jim Elliott, who is Head of the Music Department at Foyles, he finds out what consumers are listening to with Katy Hamilton, and gets up to speed on where classical music downloads are with Steve Long, the Director of Signum Records.

11.25
Andrew chooses an outstanding new release as his Disc of the Week.

Michael Tippett and Ukrainian polyphony

An earlier British musical icon, Charles Halle founded his orchestra in Manchester in the mid-19th century and it still flourishes today: archivist Eleanor Roberts and conductor Sir Mark Elder praise a remarkable man.

Also, star tenor Juan Diego Florez talks about his work with disadvantaged children in Peru, and about his upcoming opera roles, and Miklos Both tells Tom about a living tradition of ancient choral singing, which he has been recording in Ukraine.


SAT 12:30 This Classical Life (m00046cp)
Jess Gillam with... Belle Chen

Jess Gillam presents her new show, with pianist and sound artist Belle Chen.

From her musical beginnings in a carnival band, to being the first ever saxophone finalist in BBC Young Musician, and appearances at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018 and at this year’s BAFTA awards, Jess is one of today’s most engaging and charismatic classical performers. Each week on This Classical Life, Jess will be joined by young musicians to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.

Her guest is the former BBC Introducing pianist and sound artist Belle Chen, and their 30-minute musical journey includes Korngold's Violin Concerto, music for prepared piano by John Cage and Aphex Twin, Sibelius' 7th Symphony and Herbie Hancock playing Ravel.

Forthcoming guests include the pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, the double bassist Sam Becker. This Classical Life is also available as a podcast on BBC Sounds.

Musical delights unravelled with recorder and violin player Charlotte Barbour-Condini

Charlotte Barbour-Condini won the woodwind final of BBC Young Musician in 2012 playing the recorder, and she is also an accomplished violinist. She remembers the inspirational pieces that sparked her enthusiasm for performing and demonstrates that the recorder is an instrument that can shine in both ancient and new music.

As well as the recorder, highlights include a Scarlatti sonata played by pianist Yevgeny Sudbin, the sound of silence as it’s incorporated into the music of Arvo Pärt, and a voice recorded over 100 years ago that can teach musicians how to interpret music now.

At 2pm Charlotte brings us her Must Listen piece - a work for strings that communicates emotion in a seemingly effortless way.

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

There’s also more orchestral music from Viteslav Novak and Sir Michael Tippett. The Sunday Escape features Three Tone Pictures by the American composer Charles Tomlinson Griffes.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m00045vc)
Roger Kneebone

The surgeon Roger Kneebone tells Michael Berkeley how his work with tailors, lacemakers, Formula One teams, and musicians has transformed his understanding of medicine.

Roger Kneebone began his career as a trauma surgeon in Soweto, operating on victims of stabbings and shootings, before working in a war zone in Namibia in the 1980s. Then he was a GP in Wiltshire for fifteen years before joining Imperial College London, where he is Professor of Surgical Education and Engagement Science.

So with that impressive medical background it comes as something of a surprise to discover that he spends a lot of his professional life these days hanging out with craftspeople, engineers and musicians.

He says: ‘When I started to think about surgery not only as an application of scientific knowledge but as a form of performance and craftsmanship, it made a lot of sense to find out what other performers and other craftsmen were doing and see what the connections were between their worlds and mine, rather than looking at the differences. It’s a whole new area of exploration and research.’

As a child Roger rebuilt a piano with his father and they formed a close bond over their mutual love of baroque music: Roger chooses Rachel Podger playing Bach’s Double Violin Concerto, and Handel’s 'As Steals the Morn'.

Later he built a harpsichord from a kit when on call as a GP and we hear his harpsichord teacher Sophie Yates playing Couperin.

And Roger chooses jazz from the American saxophonist Charles Lloyd, which leads him to consider the parallels between musical improvisation and the improvisation so often necessary during surgery.

SUN 23:00 Unclassified (m00045vl)
Systems Align

Unclassified returns for a third series with a soothing soundtrack for the end of Sunday and a blissful bundle of brand new sonic treats to see us into the middle of the night, setting us up for a new week.

Unclassified is for curious ears and composers who want to nudge their audience into strange and serene new sound worlds.

This edition features an exclusive first play of music from the forthcoming album 'Orange' by Pullitzer Prize winning composer Caroline Shaw. Orange is a collaboration with the Attacca Quartet which Shaw describes as having colours that are "vivid and familiar" and the shapes which "follow a pattern that you seem to know until you don’t". It comes out April 19th.

American composer and guitarist Sarah Louise takes us to the hills of North Carolina with her contemporary take on the American primitive guitar style, which sounds both rootsy and otherworldly. Caroline Eyck marries the bonkers sound of the theremin with the brilliant strings of the American Contemporary Music Ensemble and the British producer Raven works with the limitations of analogue technology to create a sound for the dance floors of now.

Also, an unlikely but joyful collaboration from one of the biggest names in UK Techno, Joy Orbison, with composer, improvisor and saxophonist Ben Vince sounds perfect alongside new music from Nils Frahm.

Unclassified runs for six weeks and then returns later in 2019 in a new, regular slot on Thursday evenings.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00047vt)
Alban Berg (1885-1935)

I corrected the deficiency

Alban Berg ended up writing two operas full of depravity, bloodshed and sex. And he was once described as a musician dangerous to the community. But far from being dissolute and degenerate, Berg was a man of great sensitivity and ambiguity. He was born and lived all his life in Vienna. At the turn of the 20th Century, the city embodied a sense of crisis, standing at the heart of a whirlwind in which artistic and cultural forces came together to disorientate a whole generation.

As a youngster, Berg loved the music of Brahms, Mahler and Richard Strauss and the plays of Strindberg and Ibsen. Between the ages of 16 and 19 he composed 34 songs and maybe this would have been the end of it, but his brother Charly secretly took some of these songs to show a music professor in the city - Arnold Schoenberg. He was taken on as a composition pupil and Berg regarded Schoenberg as his teacher for the rest of his life. It wasn’t always an easy relationship.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m00047w7)
Behold the Man

Christ Crowned With Thorns by Dirk Bouts

Born to devout Sikh parents, the writer Sathnam Sanghera (best known for his memoir, The Boy With The Topknot, which became an acclaimed BBC Two drama) had a profound sense of anticlimax when he stood in front of his chosen painting at the National Gallery, Christ Crowned With Thorns by the 15th century Netherlandish painter Dirk Bouts. Yet on closer scrutiny, the image started to move him – and for his Essay, it opened up surprising insights into his own Sikh heritage and how much the Christian and Sikh artistic traditions have in common.

For this Holy Week series, BBC Radio 3 has invited five people to choose a painting of Christ’s passion or resurrection at the National Gallery in London and make it the starting point for their Essay.

The series producer is Kristine Pommert for CTVC.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000488b)
Alban Berg (1885-1935)

Show me the way to glory

At 21, Berg wrote to a friend: I hope that when I go out into the big wide world, I’ll find an honourable, wonderful young woman who will be devoted to me and show me the way to glory. He soon met and married the beautiful Helene Nahowski. She was rumoured to be the illegitimate offspring of the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph. From the outside, the Berg’s relationship looked ideal. There are 488 letters spanning their courtship and 28-year marriage which, on the surface, depict a loving, attentive, devoted partnership. But underneath the veneer lie years of hidden secrets.

TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m000488d)
Light out of darkness: Prokofiev and Beethoven

Recorded in March at St Marys' Church, Tetbury in Gloucestershire, the Calidore String Quartet play favourite works by Prokofiev and Beethoven, in the first of four curated concerts which the quartet, former Radio 3 New Generation Artists, gave as part of a Radio 3 Big Chamber Weekend, held in association with Tetbury Music Festival .

Introduced by Fiona Talkington.

Prokofiev: String Quartet no.2 Op.92

Ryan Meehan, violin
Jeremy Berry, viola
Estelle Choi, cello

The Calidore String Quartet present two works of great heart and optimism, written in the shadow of war. Following Germany's war-time invasion of Russia, Prokofiev's second string quartet reflects the captivating folk tunes he heard while living in the Caucasus region, while Beethoven's Harp Quartet, one of his most light and romantic, could be attributed to being in love, rather more than Napoleon's bombardment of Vienna.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m000488q)
Should Doctors Cry?

Anne McElvoy debates at the Free Thinking Festival with intensive care doctor Aoife Abbey, GP & Prof Louise Robinson, Naeem Soomro expert in using robotic surgery and Michael Brown medical historian. Does emotion have any place in relationships with patients in a more open age? Medical professionals are trained to adopt “clinical distance” when dealing with patients. Tradition says that getting emotional weakens their judgement of medical evidence and can cause safeguarding issues. But how can those in caring roles prevent disinterest seeming like un-interest?

Aoife Abbey is a doctor working in Intensive Care whose book Seven Signs of Life is an account of her experiences told through the emotions she encounters on a daily basis. Aoife previously wrote a blog as The Secret Doctor for the British Medical Association and works on a national training programme for doctors in intensive care medicine. She is a council member of the Intensive Care Society (UK).

Michael Brown is a cultural historian at the University of Roehampton who is currently leading a project for the Wellcome Trust entitled Surgery & Emotion exploring this relationship from 1800 to the present. He is the author of Performing Medicine: Medical Culture and Identity in Provincial England, c. 1760-1850

Louise Robinson is Director of Newcastle University’s Institute for Ageing, Professor of Primary Care and Ageing and a GP. She leads one of only three Alzheimer Society national Centres of Excellence on Dementia Care and is a member of the national dementia care guidelines development group.

Dr Naeem Soomro is Leading Consultant Urologist at Freeman Hospital, Newcastle. He has pioneered minimally invasive and robotic surgery in the North East and has developed the biggest multi-speciality robotic surgery program in the UK.

Producer: Fiona McLean


TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000488s)
Behold the Man

Christ Before Pilate by the Master of Cappenberg

The writer Kit de Waal grew up a Jehovah’s Witness, and it was not a happy experience for her. The painting at the National Gallery she has chosen for her Essay is the 16th century Christ Before Pilate by the Master of Cappenberg, sometimes identified as Jan Baegert. It captures the moment when Pilate, the Roman prefect, tries to wash his hands of his part in the death of Christ. For Kit, this is a poignant reminder of the sense of not passing muster in God’s eyes which she was carrying for much of her life – and a chain of ritual disavowals running through her own family history.

For this Holy Week series, BBC Radio 3 has invited five people to choose a painting of Christ’s passion or resurrection at the National Gallery in London and make it the starting point for their Essay.

The series producer is Kristine Pommert for CTVC.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (m000488v)

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00048bg)
Alban Berg (1885-1935)

This is hell in the true sense of the word

Faced with the squalor of conditions at an army training camp and the regular drills and tough exercise required, Alban Berg had a physical breakdown and was taken to hospital. A series of tests revealed the damaged state of his lungs, and he was declared only suitable for orderly duties. He spent the rest of the war on guard duty and in the War Ministry in Vienna.
He turned his attention to a play Woyzeck, written 80 years earlier by George Büchner, based on a historical case of a barber who killed his mistress in a jealous rage. The barber was tried and condemned to death, but for the first time in the history of German law, the question was raised of diminished responsibility on the grounds of mental instability.
Berg’s opera, inspired by Buchner’s play, came to be known as Wozzeck. At the opening night on the 14th of December 1925, it was described as sounding like: Massed attacks and convulsions of instruments….tortured, mistuned cackling….. A capital offence…… A dissonant orgy….scarps, shreds, sobs and belches… But there was also talk of: the strange perfection and uniqueness of this work which places him right next to the most important music dramatist of our time not only was the evening the greatest sensation of the season it was a significant event in history of music drama in general. Berg was finally and firmly on the musical map.

Tippett specialist Sir Andrew Davis, conducts The Rose Lake alongside two other richly coloured works – the Suite from Debussy’s shadowy fairytale opera Pelléas et Mélisande, which receives its UK premiere here, and, with Lisa Batiashvili as soloist, Szymanowski’s sumptuous Violin Concerto - inspired by a poem by the Polish poet Tadeusz Miciński with the words "And now we stand by the lake in crimson blossom, in flowing tears of joy, with rapture and fear...."

Why We Need Weepies

Poet and critic Bridget Minamore, TV drama expert John Yorke and film expert Melanie Williams join Matthew Sweet for a Brief Encounter at the Free Thinking Festival to look at the devices – music, close ups and the cliffhangers that cinema and TV employ to make us cry.

John Yorke is the author of How Stories Work and Why We Tell Them. Former Head of Channel Four Drama, Controller of BBC Drama Production and MD of Company Pictures, John has shaped stories and big emotional moments in British TV working on series such as Shameless and Life On Mars, EastEnders and Holby City, Bodies and Wolf Hall.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m00048c1)
Behold the Man

Christ as the Man of Sorrows by Jacobello del Bonomo

For Muslim journalist and commentator Abdul-Rehman Malik, when it came to selecting a painting at the National Gallery for his Essay, his choice had everything to do with skin colour: Christ as the Man of Sorrows by the 14th century Italian painter Jacobello del Bonomo is brown, rather than white and blue-eyed like so many other depictions of Jesus in Western art. Abdul-Rehman’s joy over this discovery proved short-lived – but the painting prompted him to reflect on how Jesus is seen in Islam, and how he as a Muslim, who does not believe that Christ died on the cross, can relate to this image of suffering.

For this Holy Week series, BBC Radio 3 has invited five people to choose a painting of Christ’s passion or resurrection at the National Gallery in London and make it the starting point for their Essay.

The series producer is Kristine Pommert for CTVC.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (m00048c3)
An alternative string quartet collaboration session

Max Reinhardt assembles an alternative string quartet for the latest Late Junction collaboration session. The players, from four distinct traditions, come together for one day only in the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios to create musical magic.

Our awesome foursome features: virtuoso scholar of Chinese traditional music Cheng Yu playing the guqin, a seven-stringed zither, and the pipa, a four-stringed lute; Sam Underwood, the instrument inventor and purveyor of ‘doom tuba’, with a new electroacoustic string contraption designed especially for this session; master fiddler Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh on his ten-stringed hardanger d’amore; and rising jazz star Elliot Galvin introducing his prepared piano expertise into the mix.

Elsewhere in the programme Max plays a track from the new album by cellist-singer Ayanna Witter-Johnson, and some classic Bessie Smith, who was born 125 years ago this week and went on to become “Empress of the Blues”.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0004866)
Alban Berg (1885-1935)

A small monument to a great love

Berg needed to visit Prague to hear fragments of Wozzeck performed. It was through his connection with Mahler’s widow Alma, that he came to stay, in May 1925, in Prague, with Alma’s sister in law, Hanna Fuchs-Robettin and her husband. Berg believed in the guiding force of destiny: that he was fated to meet Hanna and fall in love with her. He was 40, she was in her early 30s with two children. Divorce was unthinkable and so was the idea that Berg’s wife Helene might discover the truth. But Alban’s love affair with Hanna lasted the rest of his life and there exist more than a decade’s worth of letters to demonstrate the depth of their passion and reveal that everything he was to write from thereon in would be influenced by his love for Hanna. So, when Berg came to compose his Lyric Suite, he wrote a document of their love affair. But this detail was hidden within musical riddles and codes and it wasn’t until the 1970’s that the true meaning of this work was discovered.

The New Age of Sentimentality

Charles Dickens. Walt Disney. The Romantic poets. These renowned artists and entertainers were all accused of being “over-sentimental”. But is our own age topping them all – with its culture of grief memoirs, gushing obituaries and feel-good fiction? Three Fellows of the Royal Society of Literature join Rana Mitter at the Free Thinking Festival to take a hard look at whether contemporary culture has “gone soft”.

Lisa Appignanesi is the author of books including Everyday Madness: On Grief, Anger, Loss and Love; Mad, Bad, and Sad: A History of Women and the Mind Doctors; All About Love: Anatomy of an Unruly Emotion and Trials of Passion: Crimes in the Name of Love and Madness. She is Chair of the Royal Society of Literature Council.

Irenosen Okojie is author of a novel Butterfly Fish and a short story collection Speak Gigantular - surreal tales of love and loneliness. She has written for The New York Times, The Observer, and The Huffington Post and is currently running a writing workshop at London’s South Bank.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m000486n)
Behold the Man

The Crucifixion by the Master of Delft

The writer and film-maker Sheila Hayman runs writing workshops for survivors of torture, and when she set about choosing a painting for her Essay at the National Gallery, she thought she would be drawn to an image of physical torment. But the image that attracted her was the 16th-century Crucifixion by the Master of Delft in the Netherlands. Telling the entire story from Christ’s trial to his resurrection, and bursting with colour, detail and busyness, the painting still shows the suffering of Christ – but all around him, life goes on. Ultimately, Sheila concludes, it speaks of resurrection rather than death, as do the stories of those torture survivors – and her own Jewish refugee father.

For this Holy Week series, BBC Radio 3 has invited five people to choose a painting of Christ’s passion or resurrection at the National Gallery in London and make it the starting point for their Essay.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00048d4)
Alban Berg (1885-1935)

Watch over his legacy

In the summer of 1935, Berg started to be bothered by an abscess at the base of his spine. He thought it might have been caused by insect sting. Rather than seeking professional medical help, Helene kept on lancing the boils, which kept on appearing. It’s thought that the major abscess burst internally, and poisoned Berg’s blood. He was rushed to hospital, operated on and given a transfusion. There was a turn for the worse on the 23rd of December 1935. He died just about midnight. He was 50 years old.

Berg left the score of his opera Lulu incomplete. Thereafter ensued years of legal wrangles between opera houses, music publishers and Helene.
She set up a shrine to their marriage, setting in aspic their homes in Vienna and in the countryside. “Alban can wait with confidence until this Hell on earth has ceased to rage,” she wrote. “His time will come - a better time, I am convinced…. My life’s sole purpose is to watch over his legacy and preserve its purity. What else is left for me in this world estranged from God!" Helene died in 1976 and disputes about the opera continued until 1979 when, nearly 44 years after Berg’s death, Lulu was finally performed, in its entirety.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m00048d6)
A tower and a garden: Shaw and Chausson

Recorded in March at St. Marys' Tetbury in Gloucestershire, the Calidore String Quartet conclude their curated series of concerts with a work by a composer with whom they enjoy a close association, the Pulitzer prize-winning young American, Caroline Shaw. The Quartet are then joined by two more former Radio 3 New Generation Artists, pianist Zee Zee and violinist Jennifer Pike, for a performance of Ernest Chausson's Concert for Piano, Violin and String Quartet. The recital forms part of a Radio 3 Big Chamber Weekend, held in association with Tetbury Music Festival.

Introduced by Fiona Talkington

Caroline Shaw: First Essay "Nimrod"
Ernest Chausson: Concert for piano, violin and string quartet, Op.21

The Calidore String Quartet present the first panel of a triptych by the young American composer Caroline Shaw. Written especially for the "wonderfully thoughtful" quartet, the genesis of Shaw's First Essay, "Nimrod" comes from the story of the biblical figure who constructed the giant tower of Babel, a tower tall enough to reach heaven, but which resulted in a chaos of languages. That's followed by a work from one of the late nineteenth century's great romantics, Ernest Chausson. His demanding and unusually scored Concert for Piano, Violin and String Quartet, is perhaps best known through its second movement, a Sicilienne, which was aptly described by a contemporary as being like “the gardens where bloom the charming fancies of a Gabriel Fauré.”


FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (m00048d8)
BBC Singers in Good Friday music

James Weeks conducts the BBC Singers in a programme featuring his own work for choir and narrator, Orlando Tenebrae, as part of repertoire linked to Good Friday. At the heart of the programme are Lenten-related works that make no reference to Christian or religious specifics in their texts. The Orlando Tenebrae takes these ancient texts into a modern, secular frame of reference, where the theme becomes oppression, suffering and hope. The programme continues with two pieces inspired by Good Friday, with the BBC Singers performing first Kenneth Leighton's Crucifixus Pro Nobis and then, Paul Drayton's The Passion of Christ as told by Mark the Evangelist.
Also today, Our Classical Century, as we continue to explore repertoire that was crucial in the development of our contemporary music. Today, it's Benjamin Britten's War Requiem, from which we hear the Agnus Dei in the celebrated version featuring tenor Peter Pears and the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by the composer. Presented by Hannah French.

FRI 16:30 The Listening Service (b095q2x9)
Music for Mourning

Tom Service asks why music has always been an essential part of mourning. With the help of cognitive neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday, he compares the music of two royal funerals separated by three centuries, and by tracing the development of funeral music into abstract art music he uncovers the private grief behind Bach's great D-minor violin Chaconne. And before ending with a Top Ten countdown of today's UK musical funeral favourites, he ponders why some music, never intended to be mournful, becomes indelibly associated with grieving.

Producer David Papp.

Easter at King's

Donald Macleod presents a concert live from the Chapel of King's College, Cambridge. In his final season as Music Director, conductor Stephen Cleobury has chosen Verdi's dramatic and thrilling Requiem, first performed in May 1874 in commemoration of the writer Alessandro Manzoni, with Verdi himself conducting. George Bernard Shaw was a particular admirer of the piece, and Brahms's verdict: Only a genius could have written such a work.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m00048dl)
Behold the Man

The Incredulity of St Thomas by Guercino

A novelist and historian still in her 20s, Chibundu Onuzo grew up a Christian in Lagos before moving to boarding school in England as a teenager. For her Essay, she has chosen the National Gallery’s The Incredulity of St Thomas by the 17th-century Italian painter Guercino – because Thomas, the disciple who said he would not believe unless he could put his fingers into Christ’s wounds, is a kindred spirit to her. At boarding school in ‘darkest Winchester’, when most of her peers fell away from their Christian faith, their critical questions made her doubt her own beliefs too.

For this Holy Week series, BBC Radio 3 has invited five people to choose a painting of Christ’s passion or resurrection at the National Gallery in London and make it the starting point for their Essay.

The series producer is Kristine Pommert for CTVC.
