9.30am Building a Library: Elin Manahan Thomas compares recordings of Leoš Janáček's Glagolitic Mass and picks a favourite.

There is nothing quite like Janáček's Glagolitic Mass, the crowning glory of the extraordinary creative final decade of his life. With its elemental energy and power - wild organ solos, flashing brass fanfares and powerful speech-based rhythms - it's easy to imagine not only the storm that Janacek said had inspired him but also his vision of a Mass being celebrated in nature within a forest cathedral with star-capped treetops as candles. The text is based on Old Church Slavonic (with its Glagolitic script) rather than the traditional Latin, reflecting Janáček's Pan-Slavism sympathies and, as well as chorus, large orchestra and organ, the scoring includes a solo vocal quartet. This monumental work is demanding for everyone, performers and recording engineers alike.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0005sgq)
Welcome to the stage

Kate explores the life and legacy of Alma Mahler with the author of a new biography, Cate Haste.

Born in 1879, Alma has been hailed as the 19th century's first celebrity, but has often been defined by her complicated relationships with men, not least Gustav Mahler. 'Passionate Spirit: The Life of Alma Mahler' aims to shed new light, drawing from personal diaries and letters to paint a picture not only of a passionate lover, but a central figure in the Viennese cultural scene at the turn of the 20th century, a talented composer in her own right, and a supporter of music throughout her life.

In 1883 Alma's favourite haunt, the Vienna State Opera, was among the first theatres to adopt electric lighting, but it was the invention of gas lighting in the early 1800s that had already radically altered the experience of opera- and concert-goers. Goldsmiths lecturer Tamsin Alexander traces the historical changes and what it meant for audiences. With the complex technical facilities available in today's venues, lighting designer Bernie Davis reveals the tricks of his trade as he prepares for his 27th BBC Proms season, and pianist Christian Blackshaw explains why he prefers his stage dark.

Which encourages the most diva-like behaviour, straight theatre or the opera world? To compare the art forms, Kate meets the former actor and theatre director Christopher Luscombe, as he makes his operatic debut with Verdi's Falstaff at the Grange Festival.

And Una Monaghan, harpist, composer and researcher at the University of Cambridge, talks to Kate about the results of her work gathering evidence of gender imbalance in the traditional and folk music scene in Ireland.


SAT 12:30 This Classical Life (m0005sh4)
Jess Gillam with Martynas Levickis

Jess Gillam is joined by accordionist Martynas Levickis to swap tracks and share the music they love.

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 Lithuanian accordionist Martynas Levickis, together they have chosen music by Mozart, Mahler, Bjork and some electro swing from Parov Stelar.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0005sh6)
Music from the heart with conductor Sofi Jeannin

Conductor Sofi Jeannin explores the sense of space created in a recording of Brahms’ Trio for horn, violin, and piano, reveals her admiration for the voice of fado singer Amalia Rodrigues and jumps into the theatrical and dazzling sound world of Erik Satie.

She also shares some of her favourite music that was written for children – from Vaughan Williams to a piece which provides the perfect family recipe for tiramisu.

For her Must Listen piece at 2 o’clock, Sofi plays a recent live recording she’s made with the BBC singers featuring beautiful yet heart wrenching music written during the Nazi occupation of France.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0005zpn)
La Calisto - chaste, chased and changed

From a production from the Teatro Real, Madrid, in March. Cavalli's opera of pursuit and transformation of the nymph Calisto.

Chased by Jove, and then pursued by his jealous queen Juno, Calisto can't hide anymore. Added to that, she has broken her vows of chastity to Diana the huntress and is turned into a bear. Add a subplot of a love-struck Endymion (for Diana) and more revenge, this time from Pan (on Diana) and the Classical Gods are certainly not setting humanity a good example. No-one is going to emerge with their dignity intact except maybe Calisto, whose reward is to achieve immortality in the stars as the constellation the 'Great Bear'.

Martin Handley introduces this performance recorded at the Teatro Real in Madrid, and talks to Cavalli expert Jane Glover.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (m0005sl0)
Sarah Walker with Gubaidulina, Ravel and Godowsky

Sarah Walker’s Sunday morning selection includes work from female composers including Sofia Gubaidulina, Fanny Mendelssohn and Carla Bley. There’s also instrumental music from James MacMillan and chamber works from Handel and Ravel. The Sunday Escape features music by Leopold Godowsky.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0005sl2)
Lucasta Miller

Lucasta Miller is a writer fascinated by the Romantic, and the dark excesses of the Gothic. Her latest subject is a poet, Letitia Landon, whose life was scandalous and whose sudden death is like a scene from a detective novel. In her day, Landon was an icon, hailed as a “female Byron” – and a favourite of the Brontë sisters, who were the subject of Lucasta Miller’s previous book. Both biographies were years in the making, partly because they involved such meticulous research, partly because Lucasta Miller was at the same time writing journalism, editing books, teaching English to refugees, bringing up children and generally holding together a household, the other half of which is the singer Ian Bostridge.

In Private Passions, Lucasta Miller talks to Michael Berkeley about her lasting obsession with the gothic, and about the dark secrets concealed in Letitia Landon’s life. The theme of dark secrets takes her to the first German Romantic opera, Weber’s Der Freischütz, and the terrifying Wolf’s Glen. She discusses too what biographers can bring to our understanding of music and chooses a song by Clara Schumann, written just as she was on the point of marriage to Robert. And in relation to her own husband, Lucasta talks honestly about how difficult the life of a professional musician is, both for them and for their family at home. Does husband Ian Bostridge make it onto the playlist? As she says, she felt she was damned if she chose him, damned if she didn’t. So she does include him in the end, singing a lyrical song by Hans-Werner Henze which was written for Bostridge. Other musical choices include Maria Callas singing from Bellini’s Norma, and the Bach cello suites played by Stephen Isserlis.

SUN 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0005nnv)
Stravinsky meets the violin

From Wigmore Hall, Ilya Gringolts plays some of Stravinsky's most tuneful and attractive works for violin, re-cycled from some of his older ballet scores.

Apart from the numbers from The Firebird, Stravinsky's earliest major success, the rest of the music in today's programme was itself arranged from other composers. The Suite after themes, fragments, and pieces by Giambattista Pergolesi began life as Pulcinella, re-workings of mainly 18th-century Italian music, and The Fairy's Kiss was an affectionate tribute to Tchaikovsky whose music struck such a resonant chord with Stravinsky.

Introduced by Fiona Talkington.

Bakfark's world

Lucie Skeaping talks to Jacob Heringman about the 16th-century lutenist and composer Valentin Bakfark. who was the most celebrated player of his time, whose fame reached beyond his native Hungary into the rest of Europe. Apart from learning about his demanding pieces, full of technical difficulties, we also hone in on the different types of music written for the lute at the time: ordinary dances, free-styled fantasias, and intabulations or arrangements for the lute of choral pieces, both sacred and secular in a time when vocal music was at its prime.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0005slb)
Within Limits

Anthony Howell and Amaka Okafor with readings exploring ideas of constraint in art and life, including poems from Fulke Greville, Wallace Stevens, and Christina Rossetti, and music ranging from Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven, to the Velvet Underground.
The title ‘within limits’ is taken in the widest possible sense. There are readings and music in here which reflect upon the limits of human experience, on what we can and can’t do with language, and plenty in which writers and composers have worked within specific limits they've set for themselves: music composed at random within a set of defined parameters, a novel written without any words containing the letter ‘e’, the same insignificant incident retold again and again in different styles, a few experiments with the sonnet form.
There are also a few pieces of music that are supposedly test the limits of performers by being notoriously difficult to perform.

Readings:
Pensées - Pascal (tr. C. Kegan Paul 1885)
Proslogion - St Anselm

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0005sld)
Cristiani and Her Cello

Dr Kate Kennedy explores the life of pioneer 19th-century cellist Lise Cristiani and investigates the profound bond she developed with the instrument she called 'husband'. Perhaps the first female cello virtuosa, Dr Kennedy finds out what makes her a trailblazer from her playing position to the extraordinary journey she undertook through some of the most remote areas of Russia.

Very little is known of Lise Cristiani's life, but tantalising references remain. She is the person to whom Mendelssohn's Song Without Words for cello and piano was dedicated, and her 1700 Stradivarius still bears her name. Dr Kennedy travels to Paris, the city of Cristiani's birth, and to Cremona, the city of her cello's birth, to help piece together the life and artistry of this remarkable woman.

Dr Kennedy, herself a cellist, speaks to Julian Lloyd-Webber and Natalie Clein, as well as to the luthier Charles Beare. In Paris, the cellist Marie-Thérèse Grisenti and the journalist Dominique Boutel, who have become fascinated by Cristiani, explore her life and also her repertoire. In conjunction with the pianist and Mendelssohn historian Prof. Larry Todd, they discuss the power and the significance of Mendelssohn’s Song Without Words, and thanks to Larry Todd, we hear for the first time another piece, still unpublished, that is dedicated to her. Throughout the programme we hear a wide variety of music from Bach, Chopin, and Mendelssohn, to Delius and Bloch.

We hear Cristiani’s voice through her letters, and Dr Kennedy tries too to find the voice of her cello, asking whether an instrument can tell us anything about the player who spent so many emotional and life-changing experiences with it.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b08kyb9b)
Pericles

A gripping new production of one of Shakespeare's later and least performed plays, Pericles, in which murder, incest, intrigue, shipwrecks and prostitution tear King Pericles' family apart.

Adapted for radio and directed by acclaimed British theatre writer/director Neil Bartlett with a multicultural cast including opera legend Sir Willard White as Gower, the RSC's rising star Paapa Essiedu as Pericles and renowned British film actress Adjoa Andoh as Dionyza. A Greek chorus trio provides an innovative way to deliver pirates, fishermen, knights and villains galore.

Pericles is a problem play on stage given the long script, wordy passages, multiple shipwrecks and sea storms, and large number of locations. With a pacey, music-rich new adaptation for radio by Neil Bartlett and the rich, beguiling tones of Willard White as Gower, Pericles becomes a lively, shocking and moving roller-coaster journey, perfect for radio drama, and reclaims Pericles as one of Shakespeare's plays definitely worthy of more frequent productions.

SUN 21:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0005slg)
The Clear Day at Sea Orchestra

A concert from Tokyo with Fiona Talkington.

Tonight we're in Japan and the conductor-less Triton Hareta Umino Orchestra. The name translates roughly as the Triton Clear Day at Sea orchestra and is based in the Harumi (Clear Sea) district of Tokyo.

The orchestra was formed in 2015, led by Tatsuya Yabe and made up of some of the leading players from other Tokyo orchestras like the NHK Symphony Orchestra, the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic. The idea is to play as a true chamber orchestra without conductor to achieve a level of spontaneity and the highest quality music making.

This is the first chance to hear the result of their efforts in two symphonies by Beethoven.

SUN 23:00 Sean Shibe's Guitar Zone (m0005slj)
Past and Future Sounds

In this second episode Sean delves into some of the many ways of playing Bach on the lute and guitar, finds a singing oboe line interpreted beautifully by two masters of the guitar from the 1960s, discovers connections between Debussy, Villa Lobos and the bossa nova and shows how to get an otherworldly effect using a guitar and a spoon.

Sean Shibe is a young, award-winning musician who’s changing the way people listen to the guitar. In this six-part series he presents a personal choice of vibrant and varied pieces by composers from Spanish Renaissance masters to Steve Reich and Django Reinhardt, with performers including Julian Bream, Andres Segovia, John Williams, Rolf Lislevand, Dolores Costoyas and the Romeros. Sean will be discovering the characters of the extended guitar family, from the oud, lute and vihuela to the Brahms guitar, decachord and electric guitar, and he’ll express straight-talking views on players of the past and present who have helped shape his own unique approach to the art of guitar playing. With his guitar on his knee he'll also have the opportunity to show us what to listen for and what’s physically possible on the instrument.

Over the weeks we’ll hear Sean’s philosophical, intellectual and above all emotional take on the music he knows so well. He opens a door into a world that’s full of subtlety and contrast in its expression of culture and style. It’s a world that invites us with all sorts of mesmeric and surprising sounds.

Royal Concertgebouw at the Proms

Amsterdam’s mighty Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is regularly named as one of the world’s finest orchestras. In 2017 it returned to the BBC Proms for the first time in almost a decade. The main work on their programme was Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony – the composer’s great, unfinished farewell to the form, and his final testament of faith.

Written in 1995 for St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Rihm’s In-Schrift is an exploration of space and its sonic possibilities. With no high strings and additional low brass, Rihm creates a sound-world of striking darkness, illuminated only by the piercing brilliance of percussion. Catriona Young presents.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b1pngg)
Lili Boulanger (1893-1918)

Setting a new agenda

Donald Macleod explores the productive years surrounding Lili Boulanger's pioneering victory in the Prix de Rome.

As the first female winner, Lili Boulanger's success in France's most prestigious composing competition, in 1913, is a significant landmark in the history of overcoming gender discrimination. Artistically it identified her as one of the most outstanding composers of her generation, with the prospect of a great future ahead. Tragically she was not to have long to fulfil that expectancy. Having struggled with ill-health from the age of 2, she died in 1918 at the age of just 24, three weeks after Debussy, a composer from whom she derived much inspiration. Yet, despite the brevity of her life, Boulanger's natural facility for composition and unwavering dedication to her craft provides us with a surprising number of predominantly vocal works.

Participating in the Prix de Rome was something of a family affair. Some years earlier Lili's father, Ernest had won the prize and in 1908 her elder sister Nadia had come a very creditable second. Following in their footsteps, Lili committed herself to the task fully and was rewarded, when, having mastered all the strict competition requirements, her cantata Faust et Hélène, which she dedicated to her sister Nadia, completely won over the jury.

Tuesday - Petroc's classical alarm call

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show. Today's programme includes music chosen by today's young "Take Five" musician, the trombonist Peter Moore. This is part of our week-long season exploring and celebrating the music worlds through the eyes and ears of five young musicians. Peter Moore is a Belfast-born musician is possibly the best advert ever for the trombone. Peter has garnered spectacular reviews for his concerts, imbuing the instrument (as one stunned reviewer put it) with “the eloquence and nobility that one might have though impossible except by the human voice.” Peter is the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician competition which he won in 2008, aged just 12 years, and a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist.

Listen out for Peter. This fantastic musician will be appearing on Radio 3 programmes throughout the day with music suggestions and interviews, including performing himself later on today's In Tune.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b1pthr)
Lili Boulanger (1893-1918)

The Boulangers at rue Ballu

Donald Macleod explores Lili Boulanger's extraordinary childhood, music-making with the most influential musicians.

As the first female winner, Lili Boulanger's success in France's most prestigious composing competition, in 1913, is a significant landmark in the history of overcoming gender discrimination. Artistically it identified her as one of the most outstanding composers of her generation, with the prospect of a great future ahead. Tragically she was not to have long to fulfil that expectancy. Having struggled with ill-health from the age of 2, she died in 1918 at the age of just 24, three weeks after Debussy, a composer from whom she derived much inspiration. Yet, despite the brevity of her life, Boulanger's natural facility for composition and unwavering dedication to her craft provides us with a surprising number of predominantly vocal works.

Lili Boulanger was destined for a career in music from birth. Her father and her elder sister Nadia were accomplished professional musicians, her mother had studied voice. Living in the centre of Paris, the family household was frequented by some of the most prominent names in France's musical establishment, with regular soirees providing the perfect opportunity for young Lili to try out her compositions.

Scored for small orchestra, this instrumental version is largely unknown, which is surprising, given the popularity of Bach’s original.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b1q0wz)
Lili Boulanger (1893-1918)

The power of sisterhood

Donald Macleod considers the artistic significance of the relationship between Lili Boulanger and her elder sister Nadia, and features Boulanger's only song cycle, Clairieres dans le Ciel.

As the first female winner, Lili Boulanger's success in France's most prestigious composing competition, in 1913, is a significant landmark in the history of overcoming gender discrimination. Artistically it identified her as one of the most outstanding composers of her generation, with the prospect of a great future ahead. Tragically she was not to have long to fulfil that expectancy. Having struggled with ill-health from the age of 2, she died in 1918 at the age of just 24, three weeks after Debussy, a composer from whom she derived much inspiration. Yet, despite the brevity of her life, Boulanger's natural facility for composition and unwavering dedication to her craft provides us with a surprising number of predominantly vocal works.

Nadia was an important figure in Lili Boulanger's life. It had been inculcated by their parents at an early age that Nadia must bear responsibility for her younger sister. It was a role she fulfilled not only throughout Lili's life, but also after her early death in 1918, as she continued to promote Lili's music until her own death in 1979.

Thursday - Petroc's classical alternative

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show. Today's programme includes music chosen by "Take Five" artist Soraya Mafi.

Each day this week we are celebrating and exploring a world of music through the eyes, ears, hearts and minds of five extremely talented young performers. Today, Soraya Mafi is that performer. Soraya is a Manchester born opera singer and is making a name for herself as one of the most outstanding young musicians on stage. Soraya’s stunning voice is at home in Mozart as it is in Sondheim, Janacek, Monteverdi, Poulenc, Handel, Faure and Britten, composers whose music she has sung to rave reviews. Soraya has also been awarded the prestigious Maggie Teyte Prize and The RCM Lieder Prize.

Soraya will be appearing on Radio 3 throughout the day and will be performing live on In Tune.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b1q2dt)
Lili Boulanger (1893-1918)

The Great War

Donald Macleod follows Lili Boulanger's activities during the First World War, when her music-making possibilities were restricted.

As the first female winner, Lili Boulanger's success in France's most prestigious composing competition, in 1913, is a significant landmark in the history of overcoming gender discrimination. Artistically it identified her as one of the most outstanding composers of her generation, with the prospect of a great future ahead. Tragically she was not to have long to fulfil that expectancy. Having struggled with ill-health from the age of 2, she died in 1918 at the age of just 24, three weeks after Debussy, a composer from whom she derived much inspiration. Yet, despite the brevity of her life, Boulanger's natural facility for composition and unwavering dedication to her craft provides us with a surprising number of predominantly vocal works.

The advent of the Great War resulted in the closure of the Medici Villa in Rome, where, as a Prix de Rome winner, Lili Boulanger had been staying. Too frail to undertake any physical occupation, but determined to make a contribution, Boulanger explored other ways in which she could support the war effort. She soon identified a way and set to work.

National Youth Orchestra of Scotland 40th Anniversary Concert

Donald Macleod presents the 40th anniversary concert given by NYOS Symphony Orchestra at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

40 years ago, the United Nations proclaimed 1979 the International Year of the Child and, in the same year, Scotland took steps to enrich the lives and develop the talents of young people with the formation of the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland. Now 40 years on there are multiple orchestras and training ensembles enabling young people to follow a pathway in classical and/or jazz performance from the age of 8 through to 25.

In this celebratory concert, the young players of the NYOS Symphony Orchestra are joined by internationally acclaimed Scottish pianist Steven Osborne and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra's Principal Guest Conductor, Elim Chan, in a concert filled with high drama, atmosphere and virtuosity.

The concert starts with Rachmaninov’s expansive Piano Concerto No 3. In Liguria, by Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi, NYOS take us on a musical walking tour with five evocative depictions of coastal villages in the north-west of Italy. After the interval we’ll hear the Mussorgsky’s brilliant orchestral show-piece, Pictures at an Exhibition, in the orchestration by Maurice Ravel.

Programme

Sergei Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No.3
Andrea Tarrodi: Liguria

Interval at 8.35pm

Today's programme includes music chosen by "Take Five" artist Stephanie Childress, a multi-talented conductor, director, soloist and chamber musician.

At the age of 16, Stephanie studied music at St.John’s College, Cambridge and has conducted Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony from the St. John’s Chapel. Ian MacMillan also joins Petroc for the launch of this year's Proms Poetry Competition, plus our regular feature of the Friday Poem.

Each day this week our Take Five season explores and celebrates the world of music through the eyes, ears, hearts and minds of five stunning young performers.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b1q3dn)
Lili Boulanger (1893-1918)

Ambitions and horizons

Donald Macleod explores Lili Boulanger's larger-scale, final projects and the impact her harmonic language has had on some contemporary musicians.

As the first female winner, Lili Boulanger's success in France's most prestigious composing competition, in 1913, is a significant landmark in the history of overcoming gender discrimination. Artistically it identified her as one of the most outstanding composers of her generation, with the prospect of a great future ahead. Tragically she was not to have long to fulfil that expectancy. Having struggled with ill-health from the age of 2, she died in 1918 at the age of just 24, three weeks after Debussy, a composer from whom she derived much inspiration. Yet, despite the brevity of her life, Boulanger's natural facility for composition and unwavering dedication to her craft provides us with a surprising number of predominantly vocal works.

In conclusion to this week's series on Lili Boulanger, Donald Macleod follows the ailing young composer's frustrated attempts to finish writing an opera, the impact her impending death had on her musical outlook and the connection her music makes today.
