9.30am Building a Library: Jonathan Cross listens to and compares recordings of Stravinsky's ballet music, The Rite of Spring.

Stravinsky's music for The Rite of Spring is arguably his most iconoclastic work and one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century orchestral music. It had originally been written for the 1913 Paris season of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes company, for which he had composed both the Firebird and Petrushka as a young and unknown composer. The premiere at the Theatre des Champs-Élysées on 29 May 1913 caused such a 'riot' that the Rite of Spring has gone down in the history books as much for its notoriety as its influence. The Rite of Spring is subtitled 'Pictures of Pagan Russian in Two Parts' and expresses primitive rituals to celebrate the advent of spring. Its most notorious scene is that in which a young girl is chosen as a sacrificial victim and dances herself to death. The music is raw with savage harmonies, otherworldly melodies, and driving primitive rhythms that pulsate through the orchestra. It is a work that is so influential that it is now more often heard as a concert piece than in its original ballet setting.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0006lxj)
Obsessions

Sara meets the Beirut-based Iraqi oud player and composer Khyam Allami, whose new sound installation is part of this year's PRS Foundation New Music Biennial in London and Hull. 'Requiem for the 21st Century' pays tribute to the mythical roots of the oud as an instrument of lament, and commemorates recent civilian deaths in the war-stricken Middle East. Khyam also explains his current fixation with tuning systems and microtonality: research which challenges Western ideas about music.

Also, during rehearsals for Philip Glass and performer-director Phelim McDermott's new collaboration 'Tao of Glass', which receives its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival this month, Phelim tells Sara about his life-long obsession with Glass and his music.

The French soprano Sabine Devieilhe, about to sing the role of Marie in Donizetti's La Fille du régiment at the Royal Opera House, tells Sara how she composes her on-stage characters, immerses herself into the operatic experience, and balances family life with her international schedule.

And in the wake of recent press around the investigation into fires at Universal's Hollywood studios in 2008, which resulted in the loss of master tapes from Ella Fitzgerald to Sheryl Crowe, Music Matters visits the BBC music archives, home to hundreds of thousands of LPs, 78s and reel to reel tapes, to find out how those original sound formats are meticulously preserved for future generations. And with the sound artist Janek Schaefer, Sara asks what intrinsic value those formats have in our digital age.

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.

This Classical Life is also available as a podcast from BBC Sounds.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0006n8v)
Magnetic melodies with conductor Andrew Gourlay

Conductor Andrew Gourlay introduces music that ignited his imagination as a trombonist in his county youth orchestra, speculates that perhaps the rhythmic drive of Stravinsky is what keeps his music sounding so modern, and fires up some Latin grooves with Eddie Palmieri and Tito Puente.

At 2pm Andrew introduces his “sublime” Must Listen piece: a rarely heard work which Andrew hears as a total outpouring of emotion by an Englishman often thought of as quite reserved.

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

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0006lyg)
Mozart: Idomeneo

Tonight's Opera on 3 is Mozart's Idomeneo from Vienna State Opera. Idomeneo, the King of Crete is sailing home from war in stormy waters which will only abate when he swears he'll offer as a sacrifice the first person he sees on landing. This person happens to be his son, Idamante. When he tries to go back on his promise, Crete is afflicted by destruction, and he realises he must choose between his son, and his people.

Musicologist Dr Flora Willson presents, and is joined by Professor Timothy Jones to discuss Mozart's first mature opera and its context.

6.30pm

Idomeneo.....Bernard Richter (Tenor)

Tomas Netopil (Conductor)

The Trojan war is over. Idomeneo, king of Crete and victorious general of the Greek forces, is sailing home. However, a storm prevents him from arriving safely. The raging seas only abate when he swears that if saved from death he will sacrifice the first human whom he encounters on land. However, this first human turns out to be his son, Idamante. Idamante is in love the Trojan king‘s daughter, Ilia, who is living on Crete as a prisoner of war; and she is in love with him. However, Elettra, who fled from Argos after murdering her mother and has sought refuge in Crete, is also in love with Idamante and believes that she will win him for her own. To save his son from being sacrificed, Idomeneo plans to send him and Elettra to Argos, where they will rule as the new royal couple. His plan fails, and Crete is afflicted by destruction and chaos.

Idomeneo vacillates between sacrificing his son and saving his people. When he decides in favour of his people and against this son, Ilia stops the sacrifice, offering herself in his place. However, this does not occur. Idamante breaks free of his overpowering father and together with Ilia takes over the rule of Crete. Idomeneo and Elettra succumb to the demons of their past.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0006n8q)
Sarah Langford

Sarah Langford is a barrister; in her words, her job is “to represent the mad and the bad, the broken and the hopeful” – telling their stories in court. After thirteen years of practice, she decided to tell their stories in a book, too. In Your Defence was published last year and has had a huge impact. In it she tells the stories of eleven people she represented in both the criminal and family courts: harrowing stories of mothers whose babies are taken away at birth, teenagers caught up in addiction, a wife who’s abused, a boy whose parents fight over him for years. In Private Passions, she talks to Michael Berkeley about why she felt it was important to get these people’s stories into the public domain, at a time when the criminal justice system in Britain is facing overwhelming pressure.

One of the challenges of the job is to decompress, after the emotions of a day fighting a case in court, and this is where listening to music is crucial. “When I was coming home on the train from court, I would often find myself wrestling with emotions about all that had happened that day. I had Bach’s cello suites on my phone playlist and would listen over and over whilst writing my attendance note and closing the case, both literally and mentally. The music helped me remove myself from the carriage and also gave me a way to feel contemplative about what had gone on.” Other choices include Lutoslawski, Messiaen, Paul Dukas, Benjamin Clementine, and choral music by Morten Lauridsen.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0006m0c)
Is complicated music better than simple music?

Tom Service looks at complexity in music. From Bach fugues to contemporary pop production, musicians and composers love to elaborate ideas to the limits of their imaginations. But when we listen, we only have one chance to hear all that's going on in their music. According to physicist Marvin Minsky, the human brain can only register a maximum of three different musical ideas going on at the same time. So how do we manage to enjoy listening to the rich counterpoint of a Mozart symphony, a Beethoven string quartet, even a highly produced pop song by Janelle Monae? Tom wrestles with ideas of detail versus texture, emotion versus intellectual design and asks, can we hear the wood for the trees?


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0006m0f)
Genesis

Anton Lesser and Stella Gonet with readings from Genesis and poems that cast a sideways glance at these well-known myths.

The first book of the Bible is a wellspring of potent stories that contain deep truths and powerful archetypes. The expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden shows how we learn to label things as Good or Evil in our search for knowledge; and how this comes at a terrible price. The fratricidal brothers, Cain and Abel, demonstrate the malevolent force of resentment and revenge.

Stella Gonet reads from the classic King James Version of the Bible, a translation whose cadences run through Shakespeare, Milton and all of English literature.

As well as the tales of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, Anton Lesser explores the untold stories of the women in Genesis: Eve thrown out of paradise and yearning to lie naked in the grass of Eden once more; a middle-aged and plump Mrs Noah looking back at her passionate youth when she was locked up in an ark full of frisky animals; and Potiphar’s wife, the prototype of a whole line of femmes fatales looking for a “rough and ready man.”

As well as containing great wisdom, these deep-rooted myths can tap into more dangerous aspects of the human psyche, if taken too literally. One of the best-known parts of Genesis is the story of Noah’s flood. The notion of a universal flood sent by God to purify a world that has supposedly fallen into sin is a common theme in many religions. It has allowed the idea that any major flood or catastrophe expresses God’s displeasure. In 2014 it was claimed by some that the UK floods were divine retribution for the British government's introduction of gay marriage. It prompted a Facebook campaign to get the song “It’s raining men” to UK number one. This iconic 80s gay anthem was written for the duo Two Tons o Fun, later known as The Weather Girls.

Also includes music by Messiaen, Dowland, Cole Porter, Berg, Stravinsky, Rossini, Bach, Martin Georgiev, Ligeti, Mozart, Richard Strauss and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0001psz)
Message from the Moon

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth…

On Christmas Eve 1968, as the crew of Apollo 8 orbited the Moon, they read extracts from Genesis live on TV to tens of millions of people around the world. Later, they would also capture – by accident – a photograph of the Earth rising above the lunar landscape: Earthrise. Both events would have a profound and influential effect that continues to this day.

In Message from the Moon, we follow the Apollo 8 mission from launch to splashdown – including the reading from Genesis – and hear from astronauts giving their unique perspective on creation, faith and God. Their thoughts are interwoven with music from Hannah Peel's composition, Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia.

The programme features original interviews with Apollo 8 commander, Frank Borman, Apollo 16 astronaut and Moonwalker Charlie Duke, Shuttle astronauts Nicole Stott and Mike Massimino, as well as serving NASA astronaut Jeff Williams and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli.

Archive includes NASA commentary from the mission, previously un-broadcast extracts from the Apollo 8 capsule flight recorder and BBC TV commentary.

And God bless you all, all of you on the Good Earth.

The producer is Richard Hollingham, with sound engineering by Sam Gunn.

Message from the Moon is a Boffin Media Production for BBC Radio 3.


SUN 19:15 Another Giant Leap (b06zpyx5)
For All Mankind

For more than fifteen years there have always been people living and working in space and the pace of space exploration is, once again, accelerating.

NASA hopes to use a new giant rocket to land humans on Mars by 2035 and private companies are developing spaceships, space stations and asteroid mining operations. European Space Agency engineers are planning a Moon base and serious academics are contemplating government and society beyond the Earth. The US military is even funding the design of a starship.

Ultimately, if humanity is to survive into the far future then we have to leave our home planet.

In the first essay in this series on our future in space, science journalist and author Dr Stuart Clark sets out the case for leaving Earth. He argues that our urge to explore space and travel to the stars is not a modern yearning but can be traced back more than 500 years to the dawn of scientific observation of the cosmos.

Our world is fragile and the Universe ambivalent to our existence. Stuart argues that we have to leave Earth if only to back up the biosphere. He also contemplates the deeper moral and philosophical reasons for sending humanity out deep into the cosmos. One interpretation of physics suggests the very nature, and future, of reality depends on it.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b096gfy0)
A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.

Alex and his vicious gang of 'droogs' revel in horrific violence. They run riot and communicate in 'Nadsat' their own hybridisation of Russian and English slang. When a drug-fuelled night of fun ends in murder, Alex is arrested. He is given a choice: be brainwashed into a good citizen, or face a lifetime in prison.

A dramatisation of the controversial dystopian classic about crime and punishment using an original score composed by author Anthony Burgess with new orchestration by Iain Farrington.

Performed live with the BBC Philharmonic as part of 'Contains Strong Language'. A season of poetry and performance from Hull.

Musical Arranger/Musical Director Iain Farrington.

SUN 21:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0006m0h)
The French in Vienna

Concerts from Vienna and Rotterdam with Fiona Talkington, with the French National Orchestra and Rotterdam Philharmonic.

In 1971 an American pianist bought a box of unidentified manuscript music from a local sale for $11. Inside was the manuscript of a score by Max Bruch of his concerto for two pianos, which he had written for two piano-playing sisters. The sisters had never played Bruch's original, preferring to make their own performing edition. The orchestral parts for the original version were available at the same music sale, and gradually they were gathered together and Bruch's original was given its premiere in 1973.

The other pieces in the French National Orchestra's concert are Bizet's suite of incidental music to the play L'Arlésienne (the girl from Arles), and Albert Roussel's suite from his ballet Bacchus et Ariane.

Mahler wrote his symphonic poem Totenfeier with a view to turning it into part of a symphony, but a less than sympathetic Hans von Bülow was not impressed and that mattered to Mahler, because he was the leading conductor in Hamburg where Mahler was now working at the opera. Von Bülow's health began to decline and Mahler found himself filling in for his indisposed colleague more and more until von Bülow's death in 1894. 'Totenfeier' translates as 'funeral rites' and with that and attending von Bülow's funeral, Mahler was propelled into writing his Second Symphony, the 'Resurrection', so called after the words of poet Klopstock that had been read at von Bülow's funeral. And that leaves Totenfeier as part of and yet separate from Mahler's Second Symphony.

SUN 23:00 Sean Shibe's Guitar Zone (m0006n8s)
Adaptations and Collaborations

In the final episode of the series Sean thinks about how the guitar doesn’t have to be a solitary instrument. He finds there are situations where it can work perfectly as a collaborator: in a baroque band or with a solo voice, even in unison with a piano (given the right amplification). Sean also discovers the extra emotional range that an arrangement of a piano piece can find on a guitar, proving that as Julian Bream said, it’s an instrument of the senses.

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 Pat Metheny and Benjamin Britten, with performers including Julian Bream, Andrés Segovia, John Williams, Tilman Hoppstock, Eric Bellocq and Massimo Moscardo. Sean discovers the characters of the extended guitar family, from the oud, lute and vihuela to the Brahms guitar, decachord and electric guitar, and expresses 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 be showing us what to listen for and what’s physically possible on the instrument.

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 in with all sorts of mesmeric and surprising sounds.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006m0y)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

Lessons in Life

Donald Macleod explores Carl Nielsen’s world view through his music. Today - the Helios Overture and part of his second symphony.

You’ll find a clue as to Carl Nielsen’s character in any number of photographs that show him smiling; they include snaps of him taken as a young man in which he’s cheekily pulling funny faces for the camera. They’re far removed from the formal portraiture one might expect of Denmark’s foremost composer. As well as a good sense of humour, these unselfconscious poses reveal an open, inquisitive fascination with the world around him. Looking back at his life in 1925, at the age of 60, Nielsen recognised this trait in himself. “From my childhood”, he wrote, “I have been full of an oddly intense curiosity which has made me see something interesting in every human creature.” His talent for observation acted as a powerful stimulus to Nielsen’s musical mind.

Across the week Donald explores how the world around him fed into Nielsen’s music. Excerpts from five of his symphonies reveal some of his most profound thinking on life, while his major choral works Hymnus Amoris and Springtime in Funen - which directly relate to his rural childhood - show a more personal side of his character. Ever the keen observer, there’s comedy and drama and even a musical portrait of chickens to be found in his operas.

Life and motion stimulated Nielsen's musical imagination in a variety of contrasting ways. Today Donald explores some of those avenues and the music these experiences stimulated.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006mhv)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

The Sound of Life

Donald Macleod explores how Carl Nielsen’s childhood fired his musical imagination in his choral work, Springtime in Funen.

You’ll find a clue as to Carl Nielsen’s character in any number of photographs that show him smiling; they include snaps of him taken as a young man in which he’s cheekily pulling funny faces for the camera. They’re far removed from the formal portraiture one might expect of Denmark’s foremost composer. As well as a good sense of humour, these unselfconscious poses reveal an open, inquisitive fascination with the world around him. Looking back at his life in 1925, at the age of 60, Nielsen recognised this trait in himself. “From my childhood”, he wrote, “I have been full of an oddly intense curiosity which has made me see something interesting in every human creature.” His talent for observation acted as a powerful stimulus to Nielsen’s musical mind.

Across the week Donald explores how the world around him fed into Nielsen’s music. Excerpts from five of his symphonies reveal some of his most profound thinking on life, while his major choral works Hymnus Amoris and Springtime in Funen - which directly relate to his rural childhood - show a more personal side of his character. Ever the keen observer, there’s comedy and drama and even a musical portrait of chickens to be found in his operas.

In the second part of his survey Donald dips into Nielsen’s autobiography. While not shying away from the genuine hardship the family endured, it conjures up a warm-hearted, vivid evocation of his childhood years spent on the island of Funen, which in turn he was able to depict musically.

TUE 23:00 Late Junction (m0006mjc)
Radical music at the Manchester International Festival

The Manchester International Festival showcases new works from across the spectrum of the arts with a programme that spans from big name stars to new artists. Verity Sharp explores the stranger end of their output this year, looking at the legacy of video game composition in the music of footwork firebrand Jlin, as well as some of the lesser known soundtracks of David Lynch.

Taking Lynch as our inspiration, we hear from other multidisciplinary artists pushing the boundaries between film, art and music. Izumi Kawasaki began her career as an actress and prop maker before moving into commercial design, live painting and now music. Verity selects a piece of lacerating industrial noise from her debut album Moromi as well as a hypnotic piece of future-primitivism from the producer and fine artist Mark Fell. Taken from Fell’s last album, Intra, this work is performed by Drumming Grupo De Percussão on the Sixxen metallophone system - a set of six microtonally tuned instruments originally conceived by Iannis Xenakis in 1976.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006msw)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

Art Is Human

Donald Macleod measures the significance of Carl Nielsen’s partnership with his sculptor wife, Anne-Marie Brodersen.

You’ll find a clue as to Carl Nielsen’s character in any number of photographs that show him smiling; they include snaps of him taken as a young man in which he’s cheekily pulling funny faces for the camera. They’re far removed from the formal portraiture one might expect of Denmark’s foremost composer. As well as a good sense of humour, these unselfconscious poses reveal an open, inquisitive fascination with the world around him. Looking back at his life in 1925, at the age of 60, Nielsen recognised this trait in himself. “From my childhood”, he wrote, “I have been full of an oddly intense curiosity which has made me see something interesting in every human creature.” His talent for observation acted as a powerful stimulus to Nielsen’s musical mind.

Ever the keen observer, there’s comedy and drama and even a musical portrait of chickens to be found in his operas.

Nielsen’s family was central to his life as an artist. Meeting Anne-Marie Brodersen and marrying her soon afterwards began a remarkable and enduring association in which Nielsen would find support creatively and personally until his death in 1931.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006m4z)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

Confrontation and Crisis

Donald Macleod considers how Nielsen’s years of crisis led him to create his Fifth Symphony.

You’ll find a clue as to Carl Nielsen’s character in any number of photographs that show him smiling; they include snaps of him taken as a young man in which he’s cheekily pulling funny faces for the camera. They’re far removed from the formal portraiture one might expect of Denmark’s foremost composer. As well as a good sense of humour, these unselfconscious poses reveal an open, inquisitive fascination with the world around him. Looking back at his life in 1925, at the age of 60, Nielsen recognised this trait in himself. “From my childhood”, he wrote, “I have been full of an oddly intense curiosity which has made me see something interesting in every human creature.” His talent for observation acted as a powerful stimulus to Nielsen’s musical mind.

Across the week Donald explores how the world around him fed into Nielsen’s music. Excerpts from five of his symphonies reveal some of his most profound thinking on life, while his major choral works Hymnus Amoris and Springtime in Funen - which directly relate to his rural childhood - show a more personal side of his character. Ever the keen observer, there’s comedy and drama and even a musical portrait of chickens to be found in his operas.

The years surrounding the First World War were difficult personally and creatively for Nielsen. Coming out of this troubling period, deeply affected by the conflict, his Fifth Symphony depicts a struggle between good and evil.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0006n8z)
Ghosts in the Machine

Verity Sharp summons the sound of Victorian spiritualists and musician mediums thanks to a new release on the Sub Rosa label that plunders the audio archives of the paranormal. With archives in mind, we also have a piece from the BBC’s music library that features a live beetle jew’s harp, recorded in northeast New Guinea. The recording was made using a live beetle tied to a small splinter of wood and held to the mouth, and buzzes at a constant pitch to form a drone underneath the player.

Plus music for the autumn in July: Iranian kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor joins forces with the Dutch jazzers Rembrandt Frerichs Trio on a new release called It’s Still Autumn.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006myv)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

Music Is Life

Donald Macleod surveys Nielsen’s post war years including his Wind Quintet and Fourth Symphony.

You’ll find a clue as to Carl Nielsen’s character in any number of photographs that show him smiling; they include snaps of him taken as a young man in which he’s cheekily pulling funny faces for the camera. They’re far removed from the formal portraiture one might expect of Denmark’s foremost composer. As well as a good sense of humour, these unselfconscious poses reveal an open, inquisitive fascination with the world around him.

Ever the keen observer, there’s comedy and drama and even a musical portrait of chickens to be found in his operas.

From 1920 onwards the growing popularity of Nielsen’s music abroad presented him with opportunities to travel, including a rather eventful trip to London.

Bach's Brandenburg Concertos at York Early Music Festival

Florilegium performs Bach's Brandenburg Concertos at the University of York's Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall as part of the York Early Music Festival. Hannah French presents.

In a strange twist of fate, the Brandenburg Concertos have come to be named after an aristocrat who didn’t particularly want them and never actually heard them. The six concertos form a master anthology, a demonstration of all the imaginable possibilities inherent in a given musical form. Each concerto calls for a different combination of soloists, every one innovative and unprecedented in its choice of instruments. Florilegium uniquely performs them in reverse of the numbered order, ending with the triumphant first concerto combining wind, strings and brass.
